and productive period in our lives the last 9 months.
On the technology front some of our technology providers we work with have
had some serious financial problems and some even gone into bankruptcy the
last 3 months, including our platform provider Mubito. This have created a
situation where we in some cases need to find new providers/partners and in
some cases need to wait for new financing to be able to continuing
implementing our new technologies. We have spend extensive time to sort
these problems out and are still working hard to solve it but we have lost
some valuable time for sure

Let the Music Play,
Hello everybody…Jenny speaking.
I’ve just listened to all the remixes again…I just have to say I love them…
The winner takes it all it’s said, but I have a special place in my heart
for more than one winner.
Good music is good in any way you twist or shape it; Benny Hochmuth showed
that by letting a classical touch in on the project. When I listen to it, it
feels like I’m in a movie, although I need to make new vocal recordings for
him. My voice there sounds a bit …low. I don’t think recording that is
possible right now, but we’ll see in the future…
However in DJ Powers version, that low sounding problem is solved. I’ve
never been that happy. You have created a great energy!
Brett Austin, congratulations!!
I’d like to hand the price to you in person and I really hope to hear more
from all of you.
I usually tell our crew on tour to keep on growing with us in the project.
In the same spirit I would like to encourage you all to make more music,
create new ideas and to improve your remixes. Welcome to the world of
changes in a good way.
This is the most exiting thing I’ve heard in a long time. Thanks to you all!
All the best,
Hope you are all fine!
I'm on my way to Stockholm to do some recordings for the new album. I feel
so privilieged to be able to do music in this way!

"Dear Acers, I am sad about the fact that I am getting strange mails from

true, some weeks ago maybe a month ago we did get invited to perform at the
"tall ships" at Szczecin, Poland, and for this we were happy But
we never agreed or went in contract with any promoter, there is nothing
signed in between the parties. We are honoured and happy about the concert
request. But the truth is that if we would have confirmed this, it would be
out in our news on the official site and myspace site directly.
In fact we left the invitation open, saying maybe to the promoter. We have
been very informative to all involved. Saying that first of all we need to
have a show to present, for that we need the group, musicians and material
to be rehearse. With out this, there is no show to perform. Due to the fact
that there was many personal schedules to re-book and change, the rehearsals
was slower then planed and due to this we did inform the promoter that the
band not were able to reach the given deadlines. So the show was turned
In fact we are rehearsing as we speak; the ambition is to set up shows in
the near future with Ace of Base. I would say in November..."

2007. This week there will be a meeting between the band and the management. After
that an official message should be published on the official website.
Like in the last year, the newspapers in Sweden are
discussing the possibility, that Ace of Base could be one of the Jokers for
the Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden or UK. But Lasse Karlsson did not
confirm these rumours:
To make some information cleared,
In Swedish news papers there have been roomers the last two days about Ace
of Base being a possible candidate for participating in the Swedish
Eurovision song contest.
This is not correct!
There’s never been any official request from SVT (Swedish Television) if the
band is interested to participate for Sweden in the Eurovision song contest.
So to valuate if or what the band feel about a question they never received
seems kind of stupid.
Same thing about question about the UK!
UK or I should say BBC has never requested the band to participate for them
in the Eurovision song contest.
