Vibe Fountain consists of Patrich and Lotte Parmatow. After travelling the world for the last 20 years they decided to settle down in their home town Malmö, on the southern tip of Sweden. Both avid musicians and sticklers for creating inspiring music, they decided to create a platform for their creative ideas.
Music production and music recording is at the core, but has since also branched out into periferal areas such as film, graphic design and art. Wherever their friends, customers and network might take them.
In the early 20th century a young boy attended his parents wedding in Spanish Town, a small town on Jamaica’s south coast. Jamaica, at the time a part of the UK empire, gained its independence 1962. In the late 50’sand 60’s many young jamaicans emigrated to UK and Europe to seek a good education and better life. So did the young boy who was now a young man. He eventually found his way to Sweden, and a few years later his son, Patrich, was born. You will find the young boy in the picture to the very far right in the front row.

Since young age Patrich has been mesmerized by the art of sound recording, song writing and music production. He built his first small studio already in the late 80’s where he let all his musician friends record their demos. From there the line is straight, but also somewhat jagged, to the Vibe Fountain studio of today.
After working and doing business many years abroad; living and working in Singapore, the Czech Republic and Spain, he decided to found Vibe Fountain together with Lotte and combine his interest for music, film and art into one enterprise.
