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 motor way raves back in the early
90‘s underneath the M42 motor way, in the uk.
As an Artists: his releases & Remixes 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, Souvenir, Rekids, Boxer Sport, Be As One, Monique,
Kostbar, Soma, Skint and of course his own recording label VIVa MUSiC.
As a Label Manager: Steve’s label VIVa MUSC (found in 2006), has quickly earned a
reputation for breaking new talent and has featured tracks by such artists as Reboot,
Audiofly, Simon Baker, Jamie Jones, Davide Squillace, Luca Bacchetti, Bushwacka, Livio
& Roby, Dragosh, Leon, Plasmik, Ripperton, Ilario Alicante, John Selway, Peace Division,
Bearweasel, Tiefschwarz and of course lawler him self amongst many others and receives
heavy patronage by many House & Techno luminaries. As for A&R, just ask artists like
Simon Baker, Audiofly, leon, Bearweasel and Livio & Roby and they’ll tell you all about the
support, encouragement and opportunities Lawler has given them.
VIVa MUSiC works as a culmination of everything that’s gone before; from the putting on
of the aforementioned illegal raves, to his residency at super club Cream back in the mid
90’s. He’s remixed high profile artists such as Jamelia, Dido and Justin Timberlake and
worked with many of the worlds renowned dance imprints. As well as recording a track for
the blockbuster horror movie by Ian Softly ‘The Skeleton Key’. He’s released some of the
industry’s most collectable mix series such as the ‘Dark Drums’ ‘Lights Out’ and, most
recently, the ‘VIVa’ series. Now on its 3rd release. The ‘VIVa’ series has revealed Steve’s
widescreen vision better than any mix before with down tempo and deep house playing a
big part in the beat blend. Steve held a triumphant residency for nine years at the Balearic
club Space in Ibiza (a club he returned back to in 2008). His VIVa Nights residency where
Steve played from doors open to door close at The End in London consistently sold out for
its 7 years span and his residency at London’s Home Club was one of the infamous
venue’s only success stories.
Dynamic, driven and drastically obsessed with performing as well as he possibly can.
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. 18 years deep and Steve
Lawler isn’t just at the top of his game, he’s pushing the boundaries of what a DJ should be
