Winter has come and for me this brings a week and a half of sweet vacation (Thank you Swedish working laws). Thus more time to do some fun stuff.
Music wise, I will now switch from Cakewalk Sonar to the much more intuitive Ableton Live. Such a great DAW to use. I have a feeling it will simplify my struggles to make music exponentially.
After the initial success of Kids Beads for iPhone, I will now work on the first update. I aim to have it ready for upload to App Store when they resume business on December 30th. Right now all updates are frozen due to the Christmas Holiday at Apple.
And I’m working on a just for fun music app for iPhone. More info about that will be revealed later.
Today we temporarily dropped the price for Kids Beads, from $1.99 to $0.99.
Within hours the app reached the top 50 list for most downloaded kids Games on App Store. I’m not sure how long it will stay in that region (hopefully as long as possible) but for now we’re just happy that so many people are downloading it.
Kids Beads is a creative game designed for preschool kids.
Make a virtual necklace by dragging and dropping the colorful beads. Tap on one of the girls to hang the sparkling necklace around her neck. Kids Beads for iPhone and iPod Touch will be released on App Store December 19th.
While waiting for inspiration to start making music again I’ve started to work on a small sound app for iPhone. It will be a pretty simple thing that you can play around with and make some crazy sounds, and perhaps even some crude music. I’ve promised myself that this will be a “max 1 month” project. Not sure I will charge anything for it. It all depends on the result.
I’ve just finished the official Kids Beads web site. We will add some more stuff on the site when the app has been approved by Apple. At the moment we’re putting together a couple of gameplay videos that will show you what it’s all about. Head on over to www.fogelberg.com/kidsbeads to read more about Kids Beads for iPhone and iPod Touch.
I’ve added all the remixes of Inside Out on my Soundcloud page. Check it out!
Kids Beads is the name of the secret app project I have been working on together with my sister Eira for a while. After countless hours of late night development, the app is now finally ready for approval on app store.
Kids Beads is a game/pedagogical toy for kids age 3-4 and upwards where you get to make a necklace out of many colourful beads. You can combine the beads however you like and see how it looks around the necks of four beautiful girls.
We haven’t set the exact release date yet but hopefully it will be within a couple of weeks. It will be a pay app without any ads. A free light version is planned for later release. Press release, movie, web site etc is under development. Please contact me if you would like to know more.
My EP Before + After can now be downloaded on iTunes. Check it out!
“Inside Out”, together with the awesome remixes, is now among my most downloaded tracks on Beatport. Check out the top list. Inside Out is released on Sick Watona.

Our favorite Swede is back on 19BOX RECORDINGS.
BJORN FOGELBERG is a music producer, web designer, indie game developer and the former label owner of XAKK RECORDS for his own productions. He has released tracks on SYSTEM RECORDINGS, SICK WATONA and of course his very own XAKK RECORDS. His last single on 19BOX RECORDINGS was “Hide And Seek” – which was a collaboration with HIDEOUT using under JELLYMAZE moniker.
Not to disappoint, we have signed up no less than three mixes. HOVELMANN is a new comer from Sweden. He has released a few tracks on SYSTEM RECORDINGS and DUMB RECORDS but rest assured he is a producer that you’ll be hearing a lot from in the near future. Hovelmann’s influences come from DJ/producers like DAVID GUETTA, AXWELL and LAIDBACK LUKE. The reworks he has delivered hit the target right on the mark and deliver the big room club house sound of his influences.
HOT STATION is a collaboration in between label boss DJ 19 (aka AMBROZIA, VALID EVIDENCE, TRANCENTRAL STATION) and HIDE (aka Hot*Dog, HIDEOUT). Their remix has a unique and kinky soundscape that is sure to please.
