Chris Lawrence/Various Around the World

Around the World is a solid set of dance floor techno that flows predictably from one unoriginal track to another, serving up steady beats and an uninspired club sound that never has a standout moment. UK DJ headliner and globetrotting mixer Christopher Lawrence spins a tight set that caters to the techno sound clubbers are used to hearing and leaves it at that. What Lawrence does offer is a flawless mix, a consistent bpm and an overall sound that thankfully doesn't drown in the mainstream. However, it never really wonders too far from it either. (Moonshine)
