Origin: Vancouver, British Columbia
Vancouver’s Gavin Froome is one of the label’s most prolific producers, having released a half dozen singles and three full-length albums on NT: 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 Helden, 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 Gavin’s catalogue with Art Department and Shaun Reeves (Visionquest) championing the 2003 anthem ‘Sunsets’, which was famously featured on DJ Harvey’s 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. In 2016, after a 10 year hiatus from music making, he stormed back with Don't Come Home [NT085], a diverse ep, including a pair of remixes from fellow Nordic Trax alumnus The Revenge.
Respected by both the music industry and by commercial pioneers, Froome has been commended by a wide variety of respected selectors, including Carl Cox, Andrew Weatherall, DJ Harvey, Nic Fanciulli and Giles Peterson. He has played alongside Marques Wyatt, Steve Lawler, Luke McKeehan, Demarkus Lewis, H-Foundation, DJ Heather, Jon Delerious, DJ Harry (Sub Club), Dino & Terry, Capital A, DJ Fluid (Om) and Danny Tenaglia.
Well known for his sophisticated sound, Gavin Froome has 3 albums on Nordic Trax: Post+Beam (2001), Mobile Villager (1999) and Underground Heroes (2004). Ranging from stomping house to jazzy downtempo, it's no wonder his tracks have been acclaimed by a wide variety of DJ’s from Carl Cox to Art Department and Giles Peterson.
