Salem & Pontus at PUB tomorrow

Here's a Christmas treat for you if you are in Stockholm tomorrow. Don't forget to go along to PUB on Hötorget for Pontus' last pre-Christmas mini-concert with a very, very special guest - Salem!

According to Pontus' blog post http://nojesguiden.se/blogg/pontus-de-wolfe/salem-al-fakir-avslutar-vad-ar-julmusik-pa-pub the guys will be interviewed on P4 Stockholm at 12:40 Swedish time, then Pontus will take to the stage at 13:00 and play some songs (accompanied by Fredrik Hermansson) before Salem makes his guest appearance. Pontus and Salem will then sign copies of "Vad är musik?".

"Remedy" is out now!

Salem's excellent collaboration with J-Son, "Remedy" was released on Monday. It's currently at no.88 on the Swedish iTunes chart but I'm sure it's going to climb much much higher!

New interview in Nöjesguiden

Here's a nice surprise which I discovered today - a new interview with Salem on the Nöjesguiden website, and a very nice new picture of him too :)

You can read the interview at

And here's the picture....

By the way, here's a tip for non-Swedish speaking readers of this blog who would like an easier translation of Swedish articles/interviews - I've just started using Google Chrome which has a translate function. If you go to a website which is in Swedish, it will ask you automatically if you wish to translate it into English. I guess this will work in reverse if you live in Sweden and want to translate English articles into Swedish?

Take it to the top of the world....

I have some great news for all Salem fans this evening - "Remedy", his collaboration with rapper J-Son is now online and you can hear it at http://www.jsonchannel.com/blog/

I've listened to the song a couple of times now and it's already stuck in my brain. Salem's melodic chorus fits very well into the electronic beats and commercial hip-hop style. Yet again, the man's musical diversity and versatility knows no bounds. It's a great record and I hope it becomes a massive hit!
