Drew Peterson is an electronic musician who produces and performs live as DLX (Doctor Lazarus X). Aside from his individual work, he is also the guitarist, bassist, and electronic programmer for the live music group Very Angry Scientist (Los Angeles). In 2008, DLX made an international breakthrough with his heavy and spacious track from the SMOG “Matter of Fact” EP, most notably recognized by “Breakage’s Relatively Speaking Remix” on the flip side. He received a spotlight on the Scion Sampler CD V.30 in 2010, with his track “City of Cars” (featuring Kemst), as well as a remix by Von D (France). DLX boasts a massive solo track list and has officially remixed works by Kraddy, Plastician & Juakali, Nomad, Trill Bass, Pyroaster and Atlantic Connection.

His latest solo debut album Listening to Science (August 2011) marks the first full-length LP featured on the Los Angeles label SMOG. A precisely scored front-to-back listening experience, the release represents years of solid studio work from DLX and is beautifully mastered by British drum and bass artist Mark Caro (Technical Itch). Given its full spectrum of styles, Listening to Science radiates to a wide variety of artists – winning airplay and support from Mary Anne Hobbs, Noah D, Atlantic Connection, and Matty G – and praised by Knowledge Magazine as a “Top Album” in bass music (August 2011).

Being an influential part of the LA Dubstep scene as one of
the first producers, he also earned spots as a resident dj in the Dubstep community via legendary Los Angeles Dubstep pioneers Smog and Pure Filth. These residencies have placed him on the same stages as Kode 9, Plastician, Headhunter, Pinch, Mary Anne Hobbs, Breakage, Youngsta, Joe Nice, Matty G, Cyrus, Shackelton, Vaccine, Hatcha, Jakes, Flying Lotus, Take, Daedalus, Mala, 16 bit, MRK 1, as well as playing Coachella and Electric Daisy Carnival, two of the largest music festivals in Southern California.
