Brought up in a household that had 70’s, 80’s and 90’s music playing all day, it’s no wonder that LAWZ keeps an open mind to diversity. At the age of 14, it were the likes of Deadmau5 and Skrillex though, and the incredible energy, intense depth and many layers of their music, that struck him.

LAWZ chose to study music in college, took a deep dive into YouTube tutorials and set out to explore all things DAW – playing about until he mastered his flow. Two years into it, he found his home in Massive, and was finally able to define his own sound and create tracks and remixes of his own. A LAWZ original will be a clean sounding track with dirty bass-lines, hard-hitting melodies and percussion – always making sure there’s many layers to explore. A balancing act of oldskool house, today’s bass house and even a bit of techno, it’ll whet the appetite of purists and freethinkers alike.
"Born in Cali, raised in Alaska/Texas for the majority of my life. Music was my escape. I'm self taught. I live in a town of 600 people. You either get caught up in meth, pills, alcohol you name it, or you chose something productive. I chose music. Infected Mushroom was my first EDM artist I ever heard back in 2007-8 ish. Ever since then I was inspired to create something that made others feel the way I did when I heard electronic music for the first time. To be able to provide the listener with enough serotonin, I provoke uncontrollable bliss. When I sound design I don't think in terms of saw wave, sine, triangle, or square. I think in terms of movement, fluidity within sound while still being able to invoke the right amount of chaos. You have the drum rhythms, but what about the swank? Hello, I'm MurlockHolms."
