Steve Lawler Biog:
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 clublandʼs eye. An electronic artist who defies generic boundaries, ever since his days organising the infamous motor way raves back in the early 90ʻs underneath the M42 motor way, in the UK.

As an artist: his releases & remixes have been signed by some of the worlds 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: Steveʼs label VIVa MUSiC (founded in 2006), has quickly earned a reputation for breaking new talent and has featured tracks by such artists as Reboot, Audiofly, Jamie Jones, Davide Squillace, Luca Bacchetti, Bushwacka, Livio & Roby, Leon, Plasmik, Ripperton, Ilario Alicante, Tiefschwarz and of course Lawler himself, amongst many others and receives heavy patronage by many House & Techno luminaries. As for A&R, just ask artists like Simon Baker & Leon and theyʼll tell you all about the support, encouragement and opportunities Lawler has given them.

VIVa MUSiC works as a culmination of everything thatʼs gone before; from the putting on of the aforementioned illegal raves, to his residency at super club Cream back in the mid 90ʼs. Heʼs 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 ʻThe Skeleton Keyʼ. Heʼs released some of the industryʼs most collectable mix series such as the ʻDark Drumsʼ, ʻLights Outʼ and, most recently, the ʻVIVaʼ series. Now on its 3rd release. The ʻVIVaʼ series has revealed Steveʼs 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 Londonʼs Home Club was one of the infamous venueʼs only success stories.

Dynamic, driven and drastically 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. 18 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.

LOVEBIRDS BIOG

Lovebirds is the solo project of Hamburg resident Sebastian Doering. Following various excellent singles on much-respected labels like Winding Road Records, Freerange, Buzzin Fly, OM records, Liebe*Detail he is currently has chart success with his new track on the massive ToolRoom Records. The Lovebirds sound is like a blast from the past with house steroids packing serious production muscle. Listening to Lovebirds is like taking trip back to the 70s and 80s – but riding in a gleaming futuristic spaceship.

The first Lovebirds release appeared on Trax of Interest in 2000. In 2006, having built up a repertoire of unsigned material, he sent a CD to John Buckby, label owner of Winding Road Records and a mutual friend of Vincenzo. The first Lovebirds single on Winding Road was the ‘Modern Stalking’ EP, which came out in 2007. The EP contained tracks of mid-tempo house, each coming from a different musical angle and giving the world a taste of what he was capable of. It was received by the deep house and neo-disco community with open arms. Top-flight DJ’s such as Prins Thomas, Ashley Beedle and Jimpster went wild for it. Bill Brewster made the EP the Single Of The Month in iDJ magazine. Lovebirds had landed.

Since then he was responsible for a huge number of club-hits including deep house masterpieces like “M.U.S.I.C.” (on Vincenzos and his very own imprint TEARDROP), the modern deephouseclassic “In The Shadows” (on Winding Road) or dancefloor bomb “The Rat” (on Freerange).
Although the Lovebirds name has burst onto the scene only a couple of years ago, Basti is no beginner in the production game. Basti formed Kneedeep, together with old friend Toddie Freese in 1998. Knee Deep became a household name in the dance scene, leading to international DJ gigs and mountains of remix work. As Kneedeep, Basti has remixed Jamiroquai 3 times, as well as Bob Sinclair, David Morales, Brandy, and many others, even winning the prestigious “best remixer” category in the 2002 German Dance Awards in the process (beating Timo Maas along the way). Also their epic “Nassau Rules” was voted track of that year in DJ magazine.

A few years on, Basti had achieved all he wanted to with Kneedeep, and was ready to move into more deeper, melancholy musical avenues. And so Lovebirds was born, which is now his main project. His production experience means that he is able to finish well-rounded tracks off in a matter of days, constantly building a repertoire of classy dancefloor and mellow sounds all destined to wow the world. The process is well on its way already. The cream of the dance world has its eyes on Lovebirds. Tom Middleton is a big fan. Jimpster has signed up some tracks for his third EP on Freerange while Ben Watt is in regular contact and has signed a track for one of his compilations. Basti is involved in fruitful collaborations with Ben Westbeech, Holly Backler, Lisa Shaw and other artists. His Track “Falling” for Ben Westbeechs album was chosen to be first single among big names like MJ Cole, Soul Clap, Hendrik Schwarz, MCDE …and was a huge club-hit including some stunning remixes from Deetron.

Expect quality house sounds as Lovebirds makes his Re:Publik debut at Crystal NiteClub, John Street, Waterford, Bank Holiday Sunday June 3rd.
