One of Vancouver's 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 you'll be hearing all summer, and closing out the release with singer-songwriter Ché Aimee Dorval on the haunting, vocal-led 'Erupt The Quietus'.

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 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 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.

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 'Reekin'structions' (Z Records). He has gone on to become one of the city's 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.

On the title track Gavin collaborated with Vancouver synth-pop duo Golden Ears. The pair, recently chosen as a regional finalist for CBC's Searchlight songwriting competition, also won a ,000 grant which they put towards making a stunning music video -- in Iceland no less! Only two singles deep, the future looks very bright for these two.

Also from Vancouver, singer-songwriter Ché Aimee Dorval came to the fore writing & touring with Devin Townsend (Strapping Young Lad, DTP Project) in their band Casualties of Cool. Prior to their work, Ché caught the ear of one of Canada's most celebrated producers, David Foster (Michael Buble, Celine Dion). She went on to write and record in LA with hit-makers Kara Diogaurdi and Greg Wells before heading back home to record her debut album. Later in Toronto she connected with Andrew Loog Oldham (ex-manager and producer of The Rolling Stones) with whom she recorded her next album. Oldham recorded her original material, as well as two covers on his Rolling Stones Songbook. Influenced by Jason Molina, Nick Drake and Lhasa, her music reflects the importance of raw and honest writing.
