One of Vancouvers best-known electronic music producers, Gavin Froome storms back after a 10 year hiatus with this diverse ep, including a pair of remixes from fellow Nordic Trax alumnus The Revenge. Froome collaborates with a couple of rising Vancouver talents on the EP: joining forces with synth-pop duo Golden Ears on the title track for a late night/early morning anthem youll be hearing all summer, and closing out the release with singer-songwriter Ché Aimee Dorval on the haunting, vocal-led Erupt The Quietus.
Vancouvers Gavin Froome is one of the labels most prolific producers, having released a half dozen singles and three full-length albums on Nordic Trax: Mobile Villager (1999), Post + Beam (2001) and Underground Heroes (2004). His releases have garnered widespread critical acclaim from Mixmag, DJ Mag, XLR8R, iDJ, Exclaim, Vice and the now-defunct Jockey Slut, Muzik and Ministry Magazine to name a few. Among dance music peers, his work has been championed by some of the biggest names in the business, with legends Andrew Weatherall, Armand Van Halen, Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier all lining-up in support, while his tracks have appeared on compilations from Nic Faniculli, David Alvarado, Djulz, Sander Kleinenberg and the iconic DJ Harvey. In recent times a newer generation has been digging into Gavins catalogue with Art Department and Shaun Reeves (Visionquest) championing the 2003 anthem Sunsets, which was famously featured on DJ Harveys hard-to-find Sonic Disco #2 (Sarcastic). Gavin continues to live and create at his home in Vancouver. In 2012 he co-directed the independent documentary Coast Modern, a beautifully-shot film that showcases the pioneers of West Coast Modernist Architecture.
Graeme Clark aka The Revenge first appeared on Nordic Trax in 2004 with fellow Glaswegian DJ Harri (Subclub) on Slackjaw from the Many Shades of House EP (NT038). After a series of stellar releases he rose to prominence in 2010 with a string of knowledgeable productions, remixes and reworks, including the critically acclaimed long player Reekinstructions (Z Records). He has gone on to become one of the citys best-known exports through his own productions as well as his collaboration with Craig Smith as 6th Borough Project, releasing two albums on Delusions of Grandeur. A bountiful career has seen him release on DFA, Pokerflat, Needwant, My Favorite Robot & Dirt Crew. In 2015 he released his debut artist album on his own label Roar Groove.
