Gavin Froome will release his third album for Nordic Trax in October ‘04. Underground Heroes has that refined sound neatly described by XLR8R Magazine as ‘the kind of swanky house and slinky down tempo that could turn shit into sugar.’
One of the few talents in North America to combine a live improvisation element into his DJ performances.
With a list of accomplished EPs and two albums under his belt, Froome has been hailed as one of Canada’s finest music producers. His first EP, the 1998 Data Tracks to Distant Cities, was included on LA-based producer David Alvarado’s compilation West Coast Vibes Vol.3 for LA's Phatt Phunk Records. The follow-up Fly Me To Brasil became an overnight classic on discerning dance floors worldwide - and Disco Specialty was recognized as peak time play by the likes of Carl Cox & Armand Van Helden.
His debut LP for NT, Mobile Villager was released in 1999 and promptly charted by many top DJ’s. Following its success, the EP Skunks was released to great acclaim, with a deeper and more mature sound for ‘the wisely chilled out’. It was a superb prelude to the 2001 release of his second LP Post & Beam, credited by XLR8R as having enough depth to shift him beyond the dance floor and into the homes of the discerning listener. Froome has entered new realms of recognition and has been commended by a wide variety of respected selectors, including Carl Cox, Andrew Weatherall and Giles Peterson.
