Illusion follows two albums for Mule Musiq, the last of which landed in 2016. We're told that it captures the Berlin-based artist, DJ, and label-owner "at home in a suitably deep landscape of sound," but that "his involving and human approach to electronic music feels more inviting and more necessary than ever."
The sound of Illusions is inspired by Lawrence's flurry of underground club gigs overseas including Japan and Mexico. It features acoustic instruments and subtle field recordings, all providing a natural bedfellow to Lawrence’s warm, earthy machine sound. Another influence is the artist’s real-time live project Sky Walking and their shows in intimate venues such as Golden Pudel Club in Hamburg.
