Hawke is Gavin Hardkiss' (still active) project for funky, organic San Fransisco break-house. Blending latin percussions with deep, dubby elements, electro-acid references and loads of sampled material, he surely has style and tells a different tale, separating itself from the rest of the US house scene - Chicago-, NYC- or Detroit- influenced.

Originally out in Sunburn - this one is the Distance repress.

Hawke - 1998 Namaquadisco

More on the West Coast scene here. The track 'I Have Her' is also found here.

P.S. While this one was uploading, I noticed that Moggieboy also posted today an early Hardkiss compilation here. Sooo weird....
