Former Swedish House Mafiosos and current duo Axwell /\ Ingrosso announced they have parted ways with longtime manager Amy Thomson’s ATM Artists, potentially headed for At Night Management, Ash Pournouri’s firm made famous by clients Avicii, Cazzette, and others.
Billboard reports that while Pournouri is eager to help his longtime friends, nothing is yet in stone with regard to the duo’s next official management home.
“The guys are close friends of mine, so we just started talking recently,” says Pournouri. “But nothing is agreed, and I would help them regardless of who they continue their journey with. I have tremendous respect for what Amy has accomplished with them.”
Thomson (pictured with Swedish House Mafia) and ATM are most well-known for their role in the success of Swedish House Mafia, which skyrocketed under her guidance over the course of roughly five years leading up to their 2013 split. Thompson had little to say to Billboard aside from wishing them success in the future.

“It’s a shame that I didn’t know the announcement was running today,” says Thomson. “At this time I’m not able to comment further, except I wish them the best. My role as manager of Swedish House Mafia and their rights management remains unchanged.”
In addition to handling what remains to be managed of SHM, Thomson and ATM take care of business for names like Alesso, Dirty South, and others.
At Night recently added Otto Knows to their roster as part of a co-management deal with Ingrosso, so seeing them bring the A/\I project to the firm seems more than likely at this point.
