Steve Lawler is the subject of a new dance music documentary, The Art Of The DJ.
The film was directed by Piers Sanderson, a British filmmaker best-known for 2010's High On Hope, which looked at the rise of acid house and rave culture in Britain. The Art Of The DJ focusses on the next chapter in dance music's journey, using Lawler's career to chart the transition from the underground to the mainstream. Starting in Birmingham, the 80-minute biopic takes in Lawler's earliest rave experiences, his successes in Ibiza and his subsequent problems with drugs and fame. Alongside candid interviews with Lawler and those closest to him, the film features cameos from Carl Cox and industry veterans Ben Turner, Danny Whittle and Darren Hughes among others.
