Chris Lawlor has been around the DJ scene since 1994 and with a career spanning four decades he’s showing no signs of taking it easy!
He got his first taste of house music while at a friends house at the age of 13. After a long love of 80s electronic music it was always going to be the natural progression. A set of belt driven decks were bought and he was hooked!
He earned his stripes as a ‘warm-up’ DJ in his hometown of Halifax, then his first ‘solo’ residency followed after about 18 months, playing the big vocal, big piano led tunes there are now widely regarded as anthems, often breaking but always supporting new music to the town.
Since then Chris has played and held residencies in what seems to be every major town and city in England as well as playing in Europe, always bringing that energetic style of his to everyone and anyone who dared to listen playing everything from disco/soulful house to Trance!
In 2010 chance meeting in a club in Barnsley with house music legend Tony Walker while holding a residency there Chris became a member of long-standing house brand Love To Be… DJ team. This seemed to give his career even more momentum, going on to play for local brands such as Funkydory and Glasshouse and major UK and world renowned brands such as Kissdafunk, Cream Tours and Gatecrasher Tours, supporting the likes of Tony Walker, Graeme Park, Graham Gold, Lisa Lashes, Rob Tissera, K Klass, Joel Corry, Anton Powers, Liam Keegan, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Marshall Jefferson, Trophy Twins, Micky Slim, Dave Pearce, Agnelli & Nelson to name but a few!
Productions also came hand in hand with this boost in profile. Chris produced under the alias A La Mode in 2014, his debut release 'Sunshine' was signed to Jango Music. In 2015 under the name Admix, 'Strange Sensation' was released, again on Jango Music. In the same year, ‘In My House’ was released under the Admix alias on Yoo’nek Records and a remix of the classic Freemasons track ‘Rain Down Love’ was also hit with an Admix remix!
In 2020 under his own name, Chris remixed the 1997 club classic by Love Tribe ‘Stand Up’. There’s definitely a lot more to come from him on the production front!
In 2021 Chris finally rekindled his first love of big vocal, funky and piano led house music and you can catch him in a town or city near you soon, or every Saturday at Wakefields coolest venue - Kindred Spirit!
Over the last decade Chris has had radio shows and guest mixes on radio stations such as Summertime Radio, Gorgeous Radio, Influx Radio, Smash FM, People’s City Radio and the huge Ibiza Radio 1!
Now Chris is here on the D3ep Radio Network with his Back & Forth Show every other Wednesday at 5pm!
