In the domestic department: a remix, made by Nalle, of “Marjanpoimija” will be released soon. The upcoming teen artist Nomi released a song with Nalle’s drum and synth production
The countdown of the reality TV show Voice of Finland has begun. This means that a lot of songs soon have to see the light of day. This without the knowledge of who their performers will be. With only educated guesses as a reference Kaiku entertainment invited a bunch of songwriters to a camp in Helsinki mo-tue this week. The camp was originally initiated by Universal which is Voice of Finland’s official record company. But neither do they know who they will sign in the end. An interesting starting point, indeed. Anyway: a lot of work got done. The end result will, as always be interesting. The power so far lies in the hands of the judges. After that, the torch will be passed on to you!
Monday again and facing it feels ok. A very nice weekend with a late birthday celebration for the newly 11-year old on the agenda. No fever in the household anymore and we are all alive and kicking!
The no.1 chart hit & most played song in Greece 2011 “Baby it’s over” with Helena Paparizou is now to be found in print. Mikko Tamminen and Nalle co-wrote the song with Hanne Sorvaag who now has published a book consisting of songs she has written.

The co-writing session this week with Anders Borgius is postponed since he got an offer he couldn’t refuse. Hoping he will visit later on this spring. On our minds right now: 1.a suitable name for the start-up. 2. the up-coming business meeting this Friday.
We are getting in the best of Friday moods listening to the remix of a song that Nalle co-wrote with DJ Salah and Keith Thompson. This goodie will be released on the 21st of February through Ron Carrolls label. A very nice suprise! Here is a soundcloud link: dj salah-keith thompson
Turn it up, party on and buy it on the 21st ;)!
We are all in a weekend state of mind. The dog a bit too excited: run off and ate a dead mouse? (or rat…. don’t want to know..). True story. Disgusting as h… Business as usual.
This one’s for you: DJ Reckless: 25 years young today! A Number One for a Numer One!
co-written: Nalle Ahlstedt & Mikko Tamminen
Shrove Tuesday today. In this household we did our munching in the weekend. The only one unable to stop is Nalle (who at the moment is eating one year old liquorice…). Snowstorm and a lovely winterlandscape in Finland at the moment.
With some delay, but posted at last: Can’t stay away with IM5 feat. the lovely Bella Thorne. The official music video now on Youtube. This song is co-written with Anders Borgius (SWE) and Kameron Ray (USA). Looking forward to next week, when Borgius will pay us a visit for a 5 day co-write session.
Monday tomorrow. A fully booked week ahead.
Bella and the boys: Enjoy!
Report from Rovaniemi: Hit factory togheter with Samuli Laiho (Finland) and Tomori Kudo (Japan), who became internationally known for creating Nintendo’s “Xenoblade Clonicle” & “Code Of Princess“ series main themes. He is also an artist under the name ACE.
Challenging due to cultural differencies, but also interesting and hopefully fruitful.
