Heidi Lawden is a DJ, producer and occasional vocalist. She hosts the bi-weekly show ‘Magic Roundabout’ on LA’s Dublab.com.
Heidi Lawden arrived in London’s club and rave scene in the early 90’s and has worked in the world of dance music ever since. Now based in California, she DJs at the West-coast’s finest clubs, undergrounds and festivals, regularly tapped to share bills with heavy-hitters such as Andrew Weatherall, Bicep, Roman Flügel, and Honey Dijon. Fluidly combining House, Techno and synth-laden Disco oddities to create a world of her own, Heidi has gained the respect and admiration of her peers through her knowledge, style, and infectious excitement for the global dance music community.
Although having long since honed the subtle skill of the warm-up, Heidi excels with lengthy sets that truck through into the morning. A true crossover DJ traversing gay and straight parties, she invariably promotes fellow female and gender fluid artists through both her bookings and radio show. Recent features include guest mixtapes for the likes of Honey Soundsystem and Feel My Bicep, the latter citing her mix among the site’s most popular.
During the day, Heidi collaborates with the ESP Institute label as well as curates worldwide events for DJ Harvey, yet she is notoriously media-shy and prefers to let her music and events do the talking. 2018 will see the debut her music production efforts, as well as the widening of her international touring schedule to include Panorama Bar, XOYO, Kaiku, Horsemeat Disco, Love International and Hï Ibiza.
