Biography of Nick Lawson:
Nottingham based DJ / producer Nick Lawson tirelessly devotes himself to the endless possibilities of electronic music. His meticulous approach to DJing and production has seen him hone a versatile style that explores the deepest realms of House and Techno.
Nick\’s early releases on Romulus Schwarz\’s Shrink and SheWolf Music imprints saw him develop a sound that was both organic and nostalgic. His low-slung groover \’Daphadandilly\’ achieved wide support, despite being released only digitally, and has since appeared on Matt Tolfrey\’s mix compilation for 1trax. Nick\’s collaborative works with Matthew Burton has seen them both explore different corners of house music, breaking the typical methodologies they normally adhere to with their solo efforts. Their first two releases together, \’Mischievous Mustache\’ (2009) and \’Playdo\’ (2010), appeared on MultiVitamins and Leftroom offshoot Left’d respectively. After both featuring on another Left\’d release with \’Snuff It\’ (2011), the pair continued with their warehouse style in the shape of the moody Tech House track \’Gruff It\’ (2011) released on Visionquest. Other releases in 2011 included ‘Take Me Away’ on Fear of Flying, another collaboration with Matthew, and ‘Ma Feelinz’ on Morris Audio.
In 2009, Nick and Matthew broke out of the studio and put their heads together to form Busta Groove. This paved the way for the pair realise a mutual objective to run their own night that encourages guest DJs to dig deep into their collection and present quality deep music far into the early hours without the predictabilities normally expected of other House and Techno nights. With Berlin’s spanking new Dice Club as their setting, Busta Groove played host to Seth Troxler, Ekkohaus, Deepchild and Simon Baker during its time in the German capital. Since Dice\’s closure however, Busta Groove has set up camp at the much hallowed Eleven in Nottingham and has also held a series of parties at The Nest in London, welcoming the likes of Ethyl, Kassem Mosse, BLM, murmur, Leif, Giles Smith and jozif, amongst others.
Aside from Busta Groove, Nick also currently holds a residency at the Wherehouse? in Notts where he shares his own style of deep yet groove-laden House and Techno, showing he is just as at home playing a carefully crafted warm up set as he is at knocking out a more energetic peak timer.
Diligent and passionate, Nick continues to pursue his sensibilities for deep music, constantly developing and refining his sound.
