Aatom – Haumea (Slim Vic Remix)

We welcome Sussex based Aatom and his beautiful organic ambient to Lamour Records. Label head Slim Vic has transformed his music into a modern classical remix. The original track was written about Haumea, a dwarf planet in the kuiper belt. It is weirdly egg shaped and covered in ice. What if the ice would melt? Could it be capable of sustaining life? A life, albeit weird, with elongated lifeforms due to reduced gravity. The planet is named after a goddess of fertility.

UK based ambient producer Aatom has been making ambient music from 2019, but only started releasing it in 2020. He began using purely ambient guitar, inspired by post rock acts like Mogwai and experimental rock band Sonic Youth. He’s since moved on to more compositional work, using mostly guitars and synths. Coming from London, but living now in Sussex, Aatom has released 3 albums and numerous singles. His mixture of drones and field recordings combine to create reflective, contemplative music that’s neither too sweet nor too discordant. He’s constantly learning his craft and honing his skills, searching for new sounds and creating evocative soundscapes.
Sound and music magician Viktor “Slim Vic” Zeidner is a tireless chameleon in the Swedish electronic music scene. With a background as a technically skilled DJ in the house genre, he likes to mix influences from all corners of the world. He has written soundtracks for the doom of the earth, written music for theater and dance and sound-designed hockey arenas. In 2014 came the debut album Brain Mash, which for many was surprisingly a journey in sound art and dark ambient. A genre he continues to release music in alongside more dancing songs and above all remixes.

With his lightning-fast fingers on the turntables, Viktor usually uses DJ technology to create sound images and collage worlds, such as in the concept ‘Glitch Scratch’ where he uses 10 vinyl players like a polyphonic synth to build up sound worlds and music.

Slim has done colaborations on records with AKBLehnbergGörgen Antonsson and Singular and is a member of improband Hawaii (Johan Sundberg), metalband Dieselkopf, improband OLÅT (Eva Lindal, Thomas Bjelkeborn & Ida Lundén)  and avant-garde band Alderholmens Futuristiska (Olle Oljud & LEHNBERG).

Slim Vic is the director of Lamour Records. Since 2012 they have released over 150 records, both limited avant-garde ambient releases and Swedish grammy nominated techno artists. Lamour organize festivals and club nights in Sweden and Europe. The label also run Lamour Record Store in Gävle with a fine selection of Nordic electronic music on cassette and vinyl, Lamour Record Store.

Tome to the weather machine
“Aatom and Slim Vic birth some strange and beautiful sounds into the universe. Long, droning strings are paired with wordless vocals, sustained tones and distant recorded galaxies give way to beautiful melodic lines and tonal shifts. Excellent work.”
