Col Lawton is a product of the vibrant music scene of Newcastle Upon Tyne which sees all kinds of music sit comfortably alongside each other. Inspired by local DJ’s such as Scott Bradford from the legendary club Shindig. This extended and related marriage of musical styles is clearly evident in the music he produces as he stretches the boundaries of what is possible in the House arena.
As a co-owner of Deep Fix Recordings along with Wez Hall and Robbie Robinson, he has crafted a career that demonstrates an evolving ability to produce music that is both authentic as well as incredibly addictive.
Col entered the musical production space in 2017, concentrating initially on producing sumptuous Deep House. This has led to releases on Broken Records, King Street Sounds, Moiss Music, the Atjazz Record Company and so many more.
He has worked with notable and recognised artists such as Glass Slipper, Da Funk Junkies, Ricky Montana and most recently with ‘The Originator of House Music’, none other than Jesse Saunders on ‘It’s OK’ he was selected by Jesse to feature on the remix package with such luminaries as Mike Dunn, Thommy Davis and The Originator himself.*
His latest release is part 1 of double album ‘Twenty2.1’ is 20 years in the making, a collection of all the sounds Col has absorbed, not specifically made for the dancefloor but most definitely dance music, an album full of different styles and sounds with deep and soulful house meeting tribal and slightly downtempo sounds, a production that can be enjoyed from start to finish.
