BIOGRAPHY


Owner and head of the long-standing Nordic Trax label, Luke McKeehan has steadily established himself as a true innovator in the world of house music. With over 70 releases spanning the past 15 years from artists such as Gavin Froome, DJ Heather, Morgan Page, The Revenge, JT Donaldson, Alexander East, LawnChair Generals, Hipp-E, Halo, Swayzak, Kirby, Jay Tripwire, Joshua Iz and many more, Nordic Trax has quietly become one of the most respected labels in electronic music.

The year 2012 marks the 15th anniversary of Luke’s globally recognized Nordic Trax brand, and if recent output is any indication, the music has never been better. DJ and radio support continues to pour in for Nordic Trax releases from the likes of A-list selectors Luciano, Mark Knight, Kenny Dope, DJ T, Mark Farina, Robert Owens, King Britt, Terry Francis, Nick Holder, Abyss, Diesel, Fish Go Deep, Graeme Park, Franck Roger, Nacho Marco and many more.

A producer and globe-trotting deejay in his own right, McKeehan was named among the Top 50 Artists & Entertainers in Vancouver. Besides his own headlining sets Luke has been the opening act of choice for music royalty on tour including David Bowie, Bassment Jaxx, Jamiroquai, St. Germain & Kaskade to name only a few. His mixed-CD ‘Many Shades of House’ received a near-perfect rating from DJ Magazine, who exclaimed "The love affair continues with this latest Nordic Trax gem". Label releases have been widely licensed and clients include Fabric UK, Nike, Defected, Turbo Recordings, Om Records, Sony, Queer As Folk, PIAS, Global Underground, Alliance/Atlantis, Showcase and more.

History: A product of Toronto’s warehouse scene in the 1980s, Nordic Trax founder Luke McKeehan’s contribution to Canada’s ever-growing dance culture runs deep, while his innovative deejay sets and productions have earned him fans worldwide. Having founded and operated two of Vancouver’s ground-breaking nightclubs for electronic music in the 1990s (The Chameleon & Sonar), Luke continues to be one of the strongest advocates for Canada’s electronic music community. He is also the promoter behind many quality events in Vancouver under the Nordic Trax banner and has hosted everyone from Kenny Dope, Carl Craig and Groove Armada to Lee “Scratch” Perry and Maceo Parker in his near 20 years of event production.
