Steve Lawler to mix next Lights Out compilation

Taken from
If ever there was a mix-CD series that said it all about a DJ, it’sSteve Lawler’s Lights Out. Following on from his Dark Drumsmixes, the Birmingham figurehead unleashed Lights Out Vol. 1in the early 2000s.
The mix celebrated the seamy, deep-in-the-night strains of four-four, with a double-disc tracklist that veered away from the obvious. Two further editions followed, each with the same aesthetic of murky dancefloors and hypnotic selections. True to its storied reputation, inthemix contributors named Lights Out Vol. 1 in the Top 30 Mix-CDs of All Time, which you can check out at the end of this article.
In 2011, Lawler is resurrecting the Lights Out series to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Lights Out – Decade will be released on his own VIVa MUSiC imprint on 28 May, once again holding true to the original template.
“In this day and age, a mix compilation needs to be special in some way, as DJ mixes are freely available all over the internet,” says Lawler is the press notes. “So my plan was to have as many tracks as possible exclusive to this album, being released nowhere else but here. That along with every single track being re-edited or re-arranged makes this in some ways more than just a mix compilation.”
Lawler is set to launch the compilation this Friday 25 March with a six-hour session at LIV Club in Miami. Sounds like just the right way to see him…provided they give the lighting guy a night off.
