The UK’s Steve Lawler is undoubtedly a name heavily stitched into the fabric of global club culture. A child of the acid house generation, Steve has always been embedded in a scene of his own making and as an artist, has consistently defied trends and genre with an unwavering passion for the whole electronic spectrum. His next release for Seth Troxler’s imprint Play It Say
It is no different. Serving up a classic journey into straight up house, ‘That’s House’ is an ode to the elemental structures of a groove that simply makes your body move. An old school bass line underpins the evolving sound bed that weaves a tangle of rhythms and sounds into bubbling acid lines. A spoken sample throughout invites the dancer to ‘get on down’ the message is simple, the hook undeniable. Bside ‘Most Beautiful Girl’ has a more electronic edge but just as much swing. Powerful divine organ melodies and full-bodied beats make this one primed for the peak time.
As an artist Steve has had releases and remixes signed by some of the worlds most established record labels, including R&S Record, Drumcode, Cocoon, OVUM, Rekids, Soma, and of course his own imprint VIVa MUSiC. VIVa MUSiC works as a culmination of everything that’s gone before. The label, founded in 2006, quickly earned a reputation for breaking new talent and has featured artists such as Reboot, Jamie Jones, Davide Squillace, Luca Bacchetti, Bushwacka, Plasmik, Ripperton, Peace Division, Tiefschwarz and many more.
