Steve Lawler & Raffi Habel incite body-shaking brilliance with ‘Boom Shack’

Dance innovator and UK house veteran Steve Lawler teams with up-and-coming DJ/producer Raffi Habel for the high-octane offering ‘Boom Shack’ via Club Sweat. Employing a wealth of experience, Steve Lawler together with the hotly tipped, UK-based Raffi Habel perfect the art of providing the heat by placing their foot on the sonic accelerator from the onset. Coupling a UK garage inspired bassline, with shuffled rhythmic elements, and fast-breaking claps, this frantic dancefloor inducer fittingly emanates that exhilarating feeling of entering a lively party deep in the depths of the wild.  


On the inspiration behind the track, Lawler said, “I was inspired by the re-birth of the mid 90’s speed garage sound perfected by the great Armand Van Helden when Raffi came to me with this great vocal he had, when I heard it I instantly heard the entire track play out in my head when this happens, you need to get to work”
