DT603 – Steve Lawler
Steve Lawler needs no introduction, but he certainly warrants one. You would be hard pushed to find a more in-form, in-demand, exceptionally talented artist, regarded as highly by his industry peers as he is by his huge global base of musically educated fans
Steve Lawler a child of the acid house generation, has been busy with the beats long before genres were but a twinkle in clubland’s eye. An electronic artist who defies generic boundaries, ever since his days organising the infamous motorway raves back in the early 90‘s underneath the M42 motorway in central England.
Dynamic, driven and drastically obsessed with performing as well as he possibly can. Being the proud owner of many Awards for his craft, Steve’s passion for House, Techno and Electronica is too strong for one simple generic association, and right now his message is louder than ever. 20 years deep and Steve Lawler isn’t just at the top of his game, he’s pushing the boundaries of what a DJ can do – both technically and creatively – as an artist and as a successful label businessman.
Steve plays in Croydon at the first ever house and techno-focused festival in The Butterfly Effect Festival taking place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July at Lloyd Park along with Darius Syrossian, Art Department, Detlef, Terry Farley, Secondcity, Cooly G, No Artificial Colours, Sy Sez, Tough Love, DJ Luck & MC Neat, Kele Le Roc and many more..

At the moment it has to be the Krystal Clear – Neutron Dance.. such an instant classic!
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Groove, build relentless drums, captivating samples, and FX. Energy

Most of my gigs are incredible, for me its either an amazing gig or a shit gig.. luckily not too many of the latter.. but we all have em from time to time.
