Steve Lawler@Twilo
by Myrlin: 05-04-2001

The night started with an early buzz. Anticipation for Steve Lawler was high in New York City as his last two appearances left a major mark on NYC club goers. DJ Three opened the evening with some quiet trancy beats, the sound becoming the staple for this three DJ night. Music seemed slow and mellow early in the evening, as Three picked up the pace after 1am. Waiting patiently, the crowd began to move around and dance as DJ Three flowed into Quivver, the transition was so smooth that I didn't even know they switched until I looked up at the decks and saw Quivver spinning. A casual set built upon progressive trance was on the menu for Quivver this evening, as he seemed to be warming the crowd up for something special. It was an interesting transition since the previous two appearances by these three DJs differed three very different, separate sets. The hard-core Twilo crowd was noticing something special in the making. As Quivver neared the end of his set, he turned up the tempo (and the volume) and proceeded to drop a handful of bombs on the Twilo faithful, energizing the crowd from the trancy state he had put them in. Once again, without any pomp and circumstance, Steve Lawler was upon the dais. We had preached much about Lawler's sexy tribal sound the last few months and a very large crowd had turned out to see what he was about. None of us had any clue what he had planned for us that evening. He came at us hard, he came at us fast, he did not let up for a minute. Lawler intermixed a little bit of everything, creating a sound, which could best be described as a flurry of energy. He started out with some tribal beats, but this time was different. He wasn't making a journey through the jungle; he was planning something bigger for the residents of Twilo. He came down at us with hard tech trance, daring us to look twice to make sure it was Lawler spinning the tracks. Just when we everyone was alive with a fast-paced vibe, Lawler turned the tables on us and delved into a deep, dark groove which has become the staple of Twilo's fiery resident, John Digweed. Hard, thumping tech house blared across the Phazon as Steve Lawler enveloped the crowd and took them in as his own. Darker and deeper he spun until everyone was deep within his realm. Surprise filtered prominently among the knowing club goers, as they knew they were witness to something different, something new. Lawler continued thumping, no chance for rest, bouncing along with the crowd to the fast-paced build he was creating. As the buzz among the crowd raised dangerous levels, Lawler smiled......and dropped the bomb.....He dropped it hard, he dropped it fast and the dancing frenzy was on..... He encouraged the crowd to dance harder, faster as he himself could not keep his feet planted. The power and energy of Twilo was too much, the masterpiece he was weaving was quickly covering everyone's souls. Faster and harder he dropped the tracks, the crowd was his for the evening. He surprised everyone by taking a new path away from his sexy tribal to kick in some dark tech house and some booming tech trance. Just to make sure people would keep guessing about this soon to be masterful DJ, he dropped the Twilo Anthem - "Hide U" and the crowd was his.
