Steve Lawler (VIVa MUSiC)
A child of the acid house generation, Steve Lawler has been busy with the beats long before genres were but a twinkle in clubland’s eye.
You would be hard pushed to find a more in-form, in-demand and talented artist as Steve Lawler. Regarded as highly by his industry peers as he is by his huge global base of musically educated fans, Steve has been busy with the beats long before genres were but a twinkle in clublandʼs eye. An electronic artist who defies generic boundaries, he began his career organising the infamous motorway raves back in the early 90s underneath the M42 motorway.
As a producer, his releases have been signed by some of the world’s most established recording labels. R&S Records, Systematic, Drumcode, Harthouse, Cocoon, MBF, OVUM, Sci+Tec, Tsuba, Be As One, Kostbar, Soma, Hot Creations, 8bit, Moon Harbour, Knee Deep, Play it, Say it and of course his own recording label VIVa MUSiC.
VIVa MUSiC, which is now celebrating its tenth anniversary, has quickly earned a reputation for breaking new talent; it’s released tracks by such artists as Jamie Jones, Reboot, Audiofly, Simon Baker, Davide Squillace, Bushwacka, Livio & Roby, Ilario Alicante, Tiefschwarz, Waze & Odyssey, Doorly, Denney, Christoph and of course Lawler himself, amongst many others. VIVa MUSiC releases frequently find their way into the record bags of dance music’s highest profile tastemakers. As an A&R, artists like Detlef, Denney, Leftwing & Kody, Simon Baker, Audiofly, Leon, and Livio & Roby could all tell you about the support, encouragement and opportunities Lawler has given them.
Dynamic, driven and obsessed with performing as well as he possibly can. Steveʼs passion for house, techno and electronica is too strong for one simple generic association, and right now his message is louder than ever. Over twenty years deep and Steve Lawler isnʼt just at the top of his game, heʼs pushing the boundaries of what a DJ can do – both technically and creatively – as an artist and as a successful label businessman.
