Lamour Label Night
Lamour celebrates 10 years as an eminent messenger of electronic music!
Lamour started as a club in Gävle 2008 and has over the years developed into record label, record store and podcast. Lamour ranges from ambient and art music to conceptual dance-based techno and house, always with genuine love and positivism as a common ingredient.
Motormännen make information techno infused with an air of Swedish nostalgia through a filter of retro-futuristic skepticism. The music is packed with minimal acid loops and samples with excerpts from Swedish politicians, documentaries and Christer Glenning, reflecting on times when the cold war and the traditional welfare state were dissolving. Inhibitions were relaxed and new, foreign influences crept into the body of society and the old information monopolies. Motormännen’s tracks are visually enhanced by messages from pictures and videos from the 1970’s and 80’s.
Singular, Malmö based musician Andreas Sjöberg’s most recent alias, blends electronics with acoustic piano in a constantly shifting spectrum of rhythm, melody and noise. Live on stage Singular shapes a unique musical experience in which feather light subtleness combines with uncompromisingly heavy dirt. Två, Singular’s coming full length debut, will be released digitally and on vinyl by Lamour Records this autumn.
A THOUSAND MOUTHS
A Thousand Mouths is the moniker of Malmö based Anders Walldén that produces electronic music with hints of house, techno and acid.
Mechanical rhythms co-exist with soulful harmonies creating a sound that is familiar yet highly personal.
As the founder of Lamour, the driving force of Gävle’s electronic music scene and as a DJ, Viktor “Slim Vic” Zeidner has appeared and heard in the most varied of contexts – from playing b2b with Lill-Babs and making music to theater with folk musicians to hosting hundreds of concerts and clubs and touring the world as turntablist. Slim loves music and likes to play his record collection in public, both genuinely obscure and forgotten vinyls and the newest of the new in an exciting mix of genres.
