Pete Lawrence

Pete Lawrence, co-founder and director of The Big Chill, has been immersed in music since day one. After setting up the Cooking Vinyl label in the 80s, he moved on to publish and edit On magazine, a catalyst for the emergent chill out scene, and has taken his music worldwide, from Brazil to Siberia (where he was the first western DJ to play in Yakutsk in 1996). With The Big Chill, he has worked with Talvin Singh, Hexstatic, RAyksopp, Zero 7, Lemon Jelly and many others.
