starstuff Posted November 16 Report Share Posted November 16 â€œAmericaâ€™s favorite trance DJâ€ [uRB] CHRISTOPHER LAWRENCE releases ten classic gems from the catalog of Hook Recordings for his second artist album to date, following the success of his recent debut â€˜All or Nothingâ€™.â€˜UN-HOOKED: THE HOOK SESSIONSâ€™ represents some of the finest moments spanning Christopherâ€™s fruitful, but sometimes tumultuous recording career with Hook and seminal trance/techno co-producer Chris Cowie. The album bristles with energy and passion from the onset, serving up enough melody and nuance to captivate even the most discerning listener. Christopherâ€™s production skills continue to unfold with progressive trance anthems like â€œShredderâ€, and â€œCruise Controlâ€, alongside down tempo gems such as â€œFilmerâ€, displaying the versatility of his work in the studio. HOOK RECORDINGS, an independent record label established in 1993 by seminal Scottish DJ/producer Chris Cowie, grew into one of the leading purveyors of electronic music labels specializing in trance and the up-tempo progressive realm. The label released over 200 records with such artists as Taylor, Sandra Collins, X-Cabs, Joshua Ryan, Fred Numf, Transa and Christopher Lawrence and these tracks went on to be supported by the worldâ€™s top DJs, including Sasha, John Digweed, Paul Oakenfold and Paul Van Dyk. From his auspicious beginnings at Hook Recordings, Christopher went on to release numerous chart-topping singles and a slew of highly acclaimed mix CDs. He has gone on to earn the â€œBest DJâ€ award at the Dancestar Awards in 2002, and was just voted #7 DJ in DJ Magazineâ€™s annual â€œTop 100â€ 2004 poll (the highest ranking American DJ) and #5 in BPM Magazineâ€™s â€œAmericaâ€™s Favorite DJâ€ poll for 2004. He has headlined the US tours for Ministry Of Sound, Cream and Gatecrasher.
