The Floridian trifecta known as Winter Music Conference/Ultra Music Festival/Miami Music Week usually makes March a special month in a DJ’s life. This March is perhaps the most important one for superstar DJ/producer Steve Lawler as it will see the arrival of the most special release of his life: the birth of his daughter, Avaida.
To mark this beautiful occasion, Lawler’s first release of 2013 is “Avaida (The Organ Track),” a track that shares its name with his daughter-to-be. An anthem heard in Lawler’s VIVa Warriors sets last year in Ibiza, the soaring nine-minute house odyssey, which is complete with a sinewy bassline and driving organ melody, regularly set dance floors alight. Now it is officially released as a special vinyl picture disc for the world to savor.
“I named this track after my darling daughter-to-be, because like making a baby this record took me on and off 9 months to make,” says Lawler of the track which also features a remix by Murk. “This record means a lot to me — it has taken many, many hours to make this record what it is, produced with analogue equipment made the way music used to be made and was mixed down on a mixing desk like the old days.”
We’re extremely pleased to premiere “Avaida (The Organ Track)” and send our warmest wishes to the Lawlers.
