Weval shares galvanizing alternative version of ‘Ways To Go’ on new ’50AN’ Atomnation compilation
The Amsterdam-based label Atomnation is celebrating its 50th release with a compilation album. Dubbed 50AN, the album features new work from a slew of artists it’s worked with in ￼the past such as David Douglas, Weval, Sau Poler, and Gidge.
By way of the label’s longtime openmindedness towards music, they’ve incorporated everything from ambient and electronica to music with more dance or house tendencies. Certainly, Atomnation had made a name for itself in the underground circuit. Once operating as a strictly Bandcamp operation, the label has without a question come quite far.
Among the record’s standout numbers is a reworking from Weval. The group, consisting of Harm Coolen and Merijn Scholte Albers, rework the track “Ways To Go”off their 2016 self-titled release. The result is much more driving, compelling version of the tune. It makes sense when considering both Harm and Merijn got their start in the film industry, which is where they met in 2010, as the new “Ways To Go” is a compelling, cinematic earworm.
