Steven Warwick

Steven Warwick is a British born, Berlin based artist and musician .


Whether in his music or broader art practice, Warwick seeks to loosely construct potential situations that unfold into a sculptural experience of a moment, an idea, or a place. He moulds hypnotic, colourful dancefloor-focussed tracks together in a similar way to his visual artwork, where objects and media combine and coalesce in an environment inviting the viewer’s participation. Live performances as Heatsick have been favourably received at venues, clubs and festivals across the world such as Berghain, MoMa PS1, ICA London, Unsound, and Mutek.

With the release of Nadir, a unique audio-visual mixtape out digitally on PAN, Warwick presents a bold move forward from his Heatsick guise with a fresh set of musical tools and brand live show, reworking and pulling the carpet from underneath the dancefloor.

Nadir is compiled of a series of darkly lyrical and sonic musings, as well as personal snapshots, written stories and videos taken across trips whilst residing in LA and Berlin.

Arriving as his first musical release under his own name, Warwick’s latest venture also utilises a new sonic repertoire, allowing for a new route for his music.

The release reflects on a somewhat sardonic, and at times melancholic and unsettling mood. Recorded in both Los Angeles and Berlin, it is a soundtrack and document of time spent in and around those environments both urban and rural.

'Complex and enthralling, swallowing whole dancefloors of people into deep, hypnotic grooves for hours on end in a rich, multi-sensory overload' — FACT

'This is dance music through and through, albeit probably unlike any you’ve heard before' — The Quietus
