“I like pony rides, trips to the moon, castenettes, pirouettes, baby sharks and birds of prey.”

HAWKE is the elaborate project that started in 1992 with the recording of the single “3 Nudes In A Purple Garden” which was featured on the classic Hardkiss album DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR. HAWKE characterizes many collaborations and original sound clashes that span a number of releases. In 2004, Hawke presented a critically praised third original album entitled LOVE WON ANOTHER.

Over the past decade, Gavin has remixed the likes of Mazzy Star, Elton John and Led Zepellin, performed alongside Snoop Dogg and The Buena Vista Social Club and released original recordings in Spain, France, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States. His music has been featured on countless compilations, TV ads as well as in episodes of Sex in the City and CSI: Miami.

He travels the word DJing a hybrid sound of techno funk with global precipitation – music that drifts between genres like a thief in the night. His focus, however, has consistently been on creating timeless music.

The Hawke album NAMAQUADISCO was released on Sunburn Recordings in 1998 and HEATSTROKE was released on Six Degrees Records in 2002.

In September 2008, an EP titled “The Knight of The Hawke Fields” was released on Eight Tracks.
