Damian Lazarus is the founder and A&R of Crosstown Rebels: one of dance music's most influential labels of the last decade. Under his guidance, Crosstown has consistently released zeitgeist-defining cuts from the likes of Art Department, Jamie Jones, Matthew Jonson, Fur Coat, and himself (to name a few). The success of the label paired with his unrivaled acumen as a jock have led to the launch of his positively transcendent party series Rebel Rave and Get Lost, now in its 11th year.

Since the moment he spun his first record, Damian Lazarus’s mission has been a clear and urgent one: to blow away the mediocre, the over-inflated, the obsolete; to seek out and celebrate the energetic, the important, the new. Always rebelling, always going places, “…and to have fun in the process. Playing around with different styles and ideas is what I do best,” Lazarus explains.
Driven by an almost childlike curiosity, a vivid imagination and wicked sense of humor, he’s used his role as a DJ, label owner and now musician to nurture and share the most exciting and experimental music on the planet. Drawn to the darkness, but buoyed by the light, ever ready to embrace new ideas and different perspectives on music and the dancefloor, Lazarus is always ahead of the curve, with a wry smile on his face and a neat trick up his sleeve, How many DJs do you know who’ve played ‘Reviewing The Situation (from the Oliver! soundtrack, no less) half-speed to a jubilant crowd at DC10 in Ibiza. How many DJs do you know who’ve received a sitting ovation on the dancefloor?
Damian's tenure at Circo Loco (DC10 Ibiza) has become the stuff of legend and found him consistently breaking boundaries of sound and stamina, freaking out the dancefloor and taking those on it to places they never knew existed, and may never get to again. “I thought a lot about these dj sets when pre-producing the album; especially the idea of placing off and strange melodies within a 4/4 dance music structure. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you’re into weird stuff”, he says.
Inspired by the new energy and possibilities in international club culture and music, Lazarus founded Crosstown Rebels in 2003. Damian Lazarus is a believer in giving people something exciting, unusual and idiosyncratic. He lives life to the limit, always rebelling, always moving forward: that’s Damian Lazarus.
