lights out 3

Justin Kleinfeld ~ On October 4, Global Underground will release Steve Lawler’s much anticipated new mix CD, Lights Out 3. Themed around his distinct dark and dirty “twisted house” sound, Lights Out (2002) and Lights Out 2 (2003) are amongst the most popular mix compilations in the world. Lawler will support this new release with a special Lights Out 3 tour across North America this fall. As an added bonus, special limited edition versions of Lights Out 3 will feature a third bonus disc featuring an exclusive mix of tracks from Steve Lawler’s own record labels: Harlem Records, Harlem Trax and Harlem Electric.

Steve Lawler is a definitive DJ and producer, renowned as one of the hardest working in the industry with an acute ear for a tune and a technical ability that is second to none. His rise to the top has been the result of pure talent and dedication to playing and producing the finest quality house music first. It's been a steady rise from the infamous 'motorway raves' of the early ‘90s, to his legendary residency at Space in Ibiza, Harlem Nights at The End, and his Lights Out tours of North America. Lawler continues to build an ever-growing band of avid followers who pack out any venue that bills his name. He is one of the most powerful touring brands in electronic music – period.

Steve Lawler has been hailed the pioneer of twisted house. His sound has evolved through the years but the main elements remain meandering through deep, dark, chunky, driving’, sexy house tracks. The track selection on Lights Out 3 reflects this ideal, but also highlights Lawler’s love of the underground. This isn’t just another mix CD with the same old tracks you’ve heard before. This CD is full of brand new gems, unsigned tracks and Lawler’s own exclusive edits. These tracks – combined with Lawler’s unparalleled mixing abilities – equal a mix CD that truly defines what this artist is all about.

Steve Lawler is currently in the midst of the busiest time of his life. In March, Lawler took the The Winter Music Conference by storm with his remix of the Funky Green Dogs classic “Reach For Me” and recently released a remix of “The Conjure,” title track from the Universal Pictures film “The Skeleton Key.” Both tracks, along with his own new production “That Sound,” have become among the most frequently played by Radio One’s Pete Tong. In July, Lawler launched his own weekly club in Ibiza with VIVA. Moving from his Sunday residency for We Love, he’s standing alone with his own night every Thursday at the refurbished Space Ibiza venue. Joining him has been Sasha with his Fundacion concept. VIVA is Lawler’s latest musical venture, and is a name he’ll be using in the future around the world.

Still evolving, still redefining boundaries, Lawler is the stuff of legends and undoubtedly a staple diet of dance music for years to come. The culmination of his busiest summer to date, the third part of his ‘Lights Out’ trilogy is released through Global Underground on October 4 and will be accompanied by an extensive tour of North America.
