The Lighthouse Project Presents: Steve Lawler
Saturday, 6 May, 2017 - 22:00
Sin City Swansea
This event marks our 25th event that we have done over the past three and a half years. If you had told us at the beginning that we would have a booking of this magnitude on our 25th, we would have laughed you out of the room. To think that many acts we aspire to booking would call this guy their ‘boss’, goes to show you how ridiculous it is. A man who needs no introduction, but certainly warrants one, we bring you DJ Steve Lawler.
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.
As an Artists: Steve’s releases & Remixes have been signed by pretty much every record label with any clout. A long list of the worlds most established Recording labels including R&S Records, Hot Creations, Drumcode, Harthouse, Cocoon, Play it Say it, OVUM, Sci+Tec, Knee Deep, 8Bit, Objectivity, Tsuba, Souvenir, Rekids, Be As One, Soma, Siesta, Leftroom, Skint and of course his own recording label VIVa MUSiC.
As a Label Manager: Steve’s label VIVa MUSC (found in 2006), quickly became a platform where many artists launched their careers. It has also released music from the industry’s leading players including Jamie Jones, Davide Squillace, Luca Bacchetti, Bushwacka, Livio & Roby, Simon Baker, Sante, Luke Solomon, Groove Armada, Peace Division, Ripperton amongst many others and of course Lawler him self and receives heavy patronage by many House & Techno luminaries.
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.
