Soulful tech house from The North that doesn’t shy from melodic substance

Swedish producer Björn Fogelberg returns from a three-year hiatus in the studio to announce his now 20th release, the full-length album Focus.

Something of a veteran, Björn’s first two albums 64 and Karooshi Porn were first released back in 1996 and 1999 respectively. He can boast some of the biggest names in the industry, DJs such as Armin Van Buuren and Markus Schulz have played his music, to name but two. Among artists Björn himself has remixed over the years we find synth legends Klaus Schulze of Tangerine Dream, Jean-Michel Jarre and Matt Darey’s project Urban Astronauts.

Yet Focus marks a new beginning for his sound. “I’ve always worked a lot with hardware and shortly after my last two EP’s I started to get into the fascinating world of modular synthesizers. I really like the idea of crafting interesting loops and sounds that way. Many of the tracks on Focus started out that way, as a random sequence on my modular setup. The inspiration to make another album built from that.”

Focus is out now and can be found on Björn Fogelberg’s Bandcamp site www.fogelberg.bandcamp.com, Beatport, Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer and Google Play.

Two full tracks from the album are available on Soundcloud:
