About Us

Fiercely independent and born out of the love of quality music, ATIC Records was created in 2005 by Andy ‘Aim’ Turner, Nicole ‘Niko’ Vergel de Dios and Ian ‘Cookie’ Cooke.

ATIC Records is based in the small north-west coastal town of Barrow-in-Furness, England. It’s first seminal release was Aim’s ‘Flight 602’ album and since then the label has released critically acclaimed work by Niko, Death of the Nieghbourhood (Stephen Jones aka Babybird), The Witch And The Robot, Gripper and Crowhead. ATIC also re-issued Aim’s first three albums ‘Cold Water Music’, ‘Hinterland’ and ‘Means Of Production’and Niko’s debut ‘Life On Earth’. The label quickly established itself after a worldwide Aim tour and began a wave of new releases such as Niko’s LP ‘Hate & Love’ and Aim’s ‘Drum Machines and VHS Dreams’.

We love creating and putting out new music and enjoy the whole process from writing the songs, recording and mixing in our own ‘Speed Limit Studios’, right through to manufacturing, promoting, touring, licensing, and hand packing our vinyl that you order through our shop.

We thank you very much for your continued support of our little cottage industry… Our dream come true, ATIC Records.
