I have scanned some ‘evidence’ from my days in the late 80s Commodore 64 scene. First up are some pics I took at the infamous meeting in Tommerup, Denmark 8th to 10th July 1988. This party was held by the groups Jewels (Ikari), Danish Gold, Dominators and Upfront.

I went there together with some of the other guys from XAKK – Vivace, Jolly Cracker/JC and Mr Cross. Somehow the arrangers had miscalculated the total space needed for a couple of hundred or so hackers. Since there was nowhere to place our computers we decided to call it quits and go home early the next morning.

May 16, 2015  |  Blog, Commodore 64, Music, Retro

As some may or may not know I was pretty deeply involved in the so called Commodore 64 scene from around 1986 to 1990. I was the co-founder and musician/graphics guy of a Swedish demo and cracking group called XAKK. Rob Hubbard was one of my major inspirations for my music back then. Here is my personal top ten list of the best pieces of C64 music created by the one true SID-god, Rob Hubbard.

Listen to Blippetiblopp, a new track by me

May 3, 2015  |  Blog, Demo, Music

I’m accumulating tracks in a pile for what could become either an EP or possible a full lengther. Blippetiblopp is one of the tracks and it’s some sort of melodic, deep house progressive thing. Listen to it and please don’t be too shy to let me know if you like it.

Responsive web design

Fogelberg.com now automatically adapts its layout to look good on more devices than just a desktop browser. This should have been done ages ago, considering my full time job is in responsive web design. 🙂 There are still some bugs to iron out, mostly with how the site looks on different browsers and mobiles.

My music added to iTunes, Beats, Tidal and more

April 7, 2015  |  Blog, Music

I have been using the excellent music distribution service Distrokid for a couple of years. Once in a while they add more stores and streaming services that you can put your music on, but I somehow never seem to find time to actually do that, until a couple of days ago..

Now almost all releases on my label XAKK are or will be available on Amazon, Beats, Deezer, Google Play, iTunes, Rdio, Spotify, Tidal and YouTube.

Sonar 2014 with friends

Another year has come to an end and I must say 2014 was a pretty good one for me, both personally and professionally. I got to travel some more and do more of the things I love. My freelance jobs brought me to places like Barcelona for the Sonar music festival, Lisbon, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I released two EPs called Rework Vol 1 and 2 and mixed/mastered the next release by Rust & Dust on the swedish house label HMWL.

I continued to write articles and reviews for magazines like MacWorld and Studio. Another mag was added to the list this year – PC för alla, the biggest computer magazine in Sweden.

The studio got some new professional equipment, like the Adam A7X monitors and a modular synth. As usual I’m working on new music, but you will have to wait and see which of the tracks that will actually be finished and released…

Happy new year! Let’s make 2015 an even better year!!
