British producer/DJ and label owner Steve Lawler has released his new single ‘The More I Love You’ featuring Aquarius Heaven, out now via Dirtybird Records.
A rolling house stunner from one of clubland’s longtime favorites, ‘The More I Love You’ carries the underground aesthetic and rebellious nature deeply ingrained in Lawler’s signature style. Driven by dynamic percussion and robust melodies, Lawler crafts a hypnotic backdrop for Aquarius Heaven’s sensual vocals on ‘The More I Love You’. Pulling inspiration from Pezzner and Aquarius Heaven’s 2018 collaboration ‘We Are Not Who We Are’ on Get Physical, Lawler worked with Aquarius to re-record a fresh new original vocal for this release. Deeply rhythmic and instantly infectious, Lawler’s Dirtybird debut will leave listeners intrigued and wanting more.
“For whatever reason, I really felt the desire to make a dirty low slung acid house groove with a full featured vocal. I love Aquarius’ unique style of vocals. I built this entire groove around his sample, but then reached out to him, showed him what I did, luckily he loved it and he agreed to cut a fresh new original vocal for me, and this is where the song’s vocal direction came from. I personally love working with original vocals as I do on most of my singles because it’s that collaboration of creative minds that can deliver magic. This song would not be what it is without Aquarius.
My creative side in the studio means I always purposefully write something that isn’t really out there, the complete opposite to copying music that’s popular and trendy. I follow my own path, meaning the branded camps of the world can’t fit me into any genre, but I have to be authentic in everything I do or I simply don’t want to do it, a rebel through and through. My integrity is not for sale. This track is for the rebels out there.” – Steve Lawler
