August 4, 2017  |  Blog, Music, Music production

Finally!!
My third full-length album “Focus” will be released on August 25th. It is the culmination of my work in the studio for the last two and a half years. The overall style of “Focus” will be electronic dance music, with elements of house, progressive, techno, ambient and even a bit of space music.
“Focus” will be available on my Bandcamp page, Apple Music and all the usual streaming places.

My next album is finished

July 23, 2017  |  Blog, Music, Music production

My third full length album is finally finished. It still lacks a name and artwork but all its 10 tracks are mastered and done. It will be out this autumn on Bandcamp, Spotify and all the other digital outlets. Planned release date: To be announced.

Now listen to the first track of the album called ‘Red in a sea of green’

Chuggawagga

This is a track I did a couple of years ago. It’s a bit old school’ish progressive chugger, slow, deep and dark. Doesn’t really fit with the styles of the other tracks for the album I’m working on, but still decent enough I think. Hope you like it.

I’m still alive

I noticed I haven’t been posting here in a while so here’s a little update to what I’ve been up to lately.

First of all, I have spent A TON of my spare time on building that Arp 2600 clone called the TTSH, or Two Thousand Six Hundred. It’s a massive build and I’m almost finished with it now. I will post some more pictures and sounds when the case and everything is done.

Also I switched jobs recently, so I’m now I’m back working with what you call User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) Design for E-commerce. I have been there for four months now, so a lot of my creative energy have been directed towards that. I’m a senior in this area and it’s something I have been working professional with for over 20 years now.

The next album is still in the works. Gotta finish it now, I know..

I now have 10 tracks finished for my next album

Haven’t decided yet if that is enough or if I should aim for a couple more tracks until I’m done. The ten tracks I have now totals in at 65 minutes. Hmm.. I guess there’s truly not something called a full length album anymore. When I released my last real CD album in 1999 a full lengther meant around 72 minutes. I’m not sure there’s a limit anymore, as long as it’s a digital release. I should get around to start the search for a label now though.

Björn Fogelberg – Deep Strategy

October 16, 2016  |  Blog, Music, Music production

Here’s a better version of my new track called Deep Strategy. Now I just need one more track for my (full length) album. I’m starting to search for a suitable label, so please do hit me with any suggestion you might have. The style will mostly be electronic dance music on the deeper, more atmospheric side, with a mixture of progressive, deep house, modern techno and a dash of ambient. Think Lost and found, Bedrock, Sudbeat and Microcastle.

Just a little preview of my new track Deep Strategy

Which will of course be part of my next album which now is aaaaalmost finished.

A treasure trove of old tape recordings

October 9, 2016  |  Blog, Music, Music production

Old tapes

I was digging around in some of my old boxes and came across a big bunch of cassette tapes. Most of them are more or less irrelevant today – they contain the normal stuff a young man would record from the radio and LP:s in the early 80s to mid 90s. But some actually have tunes that I produced in the early to mid 90s, when I was part of this company / band called Cyberpunk Development. That music was never released so it will be fun to listen to it again, some odd 20 years later. If it’s any good I will put it up on my Soundcloud page.

Oh, and there is also a DAT, but I don’t have any way of playing it, since I don’t have a DAT-player. Just had a look at Ebay and they are super expensive. Like 5000 SEK and upwards for a portable Sony DAT Walkman. What the hell?!

Listen to a new track I’m working on right now

September 25, 2016  |  Music, Music production

Deep, melodic, progressive house music. I think this tune will fit nicely with the other tracks on my next album.
