Traditional folk music from Belgium, performed by swedish youngsters, met by art music with inspiration from the DJ-culture. Out now on vinyl 12″ and digital!
During the fall of 2015, GUF (Gävleborgs Ungdoms Folkband) released an album called “GUF4LIFE” where one of it’s songs got the DJ & Composer Slim Vic to react. The rain drenched sounds in the original composition worked as the fundament for two different musical journeys, signed by Slim Vic.
Part 1, is a varying composition that take the listener in and out of club music, ambient and the original tracks folk music.
Part 2, is a very dystopic world of sounds clearly on the border of art music.

“…but this is the record that is least suitable for the dance floor, as Slim Vic moves quite a bit through territories of no beats,
in part two even without, but with some more time stretched melodies that we heard
in a slightly purer form on the other side. Perhaps not as kitschy then? Still this is
a lovely record.”
