Independent music producer 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.’ Underground Heroes is a
tribute to all those talented West Coast artists who are yet to be acknowledged. A Vancouver
discovery himself, Froome has returned with a diverse and stylish vibe, ranging from stomping
house to jazzy down tempo. Boozy A.M. has already been snapped up for XLR8R’s Sept ’04 Incite
CD and Sunsets was recently licensed to D’Julz on-line mix project Audio Families - and to
Renaissance, the latest Sander Kleinenberg compilation. One of the few talents in North America to
combine a live improvisation element into his DJ performances, Froome displays an ability to
innovate and evolve in line with globally acclaimed artists. Having progressed to the super-portable
Powerbook, his full studio experience can be set up anywhere from the most compact DJ booth to
festival stages. Froome, aka the ‘Deep House Machine’, will showcase his acclaimed on-the-fly
talents for the Underground Heroes live tour. Built around all elements of the album, he will
manipulate and create a unique version for each individual set. 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.
His imminent third LP release is sure to arrive with style and kick it on the dance floor.
