If electronic dance music were a three-ring circus (which more often than not it is), Steve Lawler would be the tightrope walker. Armin, Markus, Ferry, PvD, Tiesto and A&B would be the family of trapeze artists. Richie Hawtin would be the guy who eats fire. David Guetta would be the ringmaster. But Steve Lawler? Oh yes, he would provide the suspense, the mystique, the feeling of being afraid to watch yet unable to look away. Steve Lawler is as smooth as they come.

The King of Space, master of progression and a damn good DJ to boot, Steve came to Club Glow prepared to deliver an out of mind experience. Starting things off with tribal influenced, bass heavy, funky techno, Steve showed DC Clubbing what it means to progress. Exchanging bass lines between tracks, Lawler walked the tightrope without wavering an inch. He truly is one of the smoothest DJs Glow has seen all year, there’s no question about it. No build up too big, no cut off too drastic, Lawler moved straight across from one platform to another, dropping pure, tribal influenced techno the whole way across. If consistency is a quality you look for in a DJ, look no further. Quiet, steady, reserved, Lawler has been doing this for a long time and it showed Thursday night. Between his style, track selection, and calm demeanor, he spun what could arguably be described as the quintessential Lima sound.

Highlights of the night included Nina Simon – Sinnerman (Sean Miller & Daniel Dubb Remix), And.ID – Erotica, Gary Beck – Say What, Tanov – Relevant (Steve Lawler Remix), Kenny Hawkes – Play the Game (Joris Voorn Dub Mix) and the closing tune, from his November 2006 Contact FM Guest Mix, Rodamaal – Insomnia (Ame Remix). That last one was just… WHOA!!!
