During meeting with Ulf I asked him several questions that Acers told me to ask. I had only about 10 minutes, bacause Ulf was in a rush, he had to perform as a DJ at exactly at midnight.

Do you have a contact with the bend members outside Ace of Base?

- THE ONLY CONTACT I HAVE WITH BAND MEMBERS IS RELATED TO THE BAND. THAT MEANS NOT REALLY OUTSIDE ACE OF BASE.

WHAT DO YOU DO AT WEEKENDS?

- I DON'T REALLY HAVE THE WEEKENDS LIKE REGULAR PERSON. MY LIFE RHYTHM DOESN'T OFFER ME A CHANCE TO RELAX AT WEEKENDS. IT'S JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER DAY OF THE WEEK. MAYBE YOU WANTED TO ASK WHAT DO I DO IN MY FREE TIME. THAT'S A REALLY GOOD QUEESTION ACTUALLY. HMMM... LET ME SEE. IN MY FREE TIME, I.... I GO TO CROATIA! OF COURSE IT IS NORMAL TO SPEND THE FREE TIME WITH GIRLFRIEND... OR BOYFRIEND

WHAT MALIN STUDIES?

- SHE STUDIES JEWISH. (LAUGHUNG) AND DON'T ASK ME WHY!

IS SHE LIKE LEARNING OR STUDING AT HOME OR AT THE UNIVERSITY?

- AT UNIVERISTY OFCOURSE.

WILL JENNY RELEASE THE SOLO ALBUM?

- IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE ALBUM FOR WHOLE SWEDISH OR LARGER TERITORY THAN DEFINITELY NOT. BUT FOR SOME LOCAL PROJECT MAYBE.

YOU HAVE A LOT OF DEMO SINGLES. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR AOB TO RELEASE ALBUM WITH DEMOS AND B SIDE SINGLES, WHILE WE'RE WAITING FOR THE NEW ALBUM?

- I DON'T THINK THAT WILL HAPPEN.

IS IT TRUE THAT YOU'RE BECOMING A DAD ONCE AGAIN?

- YES, IT'S TRUE. IT SHOULD HAPPEN IN SEPTEMBER.

YOU WILL PERFORM THIS EVENING AS A DJ IN EAST WEST BEACH CLUB. HAVE YOU EVER DONE IT BEFORE?

-I'VE BEEN INTERESTED IN DJ-ING EVER SINCE 1992 (TECH NOIR PERIOD). AFTER WE FORMED ACE OF BASE I MET SO MANY DJ'S WHO MIXED OUR SINGLES. SO I LIKED WHAT THEY DID AND LEARNED SOMETHING. I DON'T DO DJ.ING PROFFESIONALY. I DO IT FOR MY HEART. AND FOR MY FRIEND ZORAN VLADIC TONIGHT.

WHAT WILL THE NEW ALBUM BE LIKE?

- IT WILL BE ORIGINAL! (LAUGHING)

CAN U TELL ME THE TITLE OF ANY SONG YOU RECORDED SO FAR?

- HMMM. WE HAVE MANY SONGS, SEVERAL HUNDREDS. BUT THESE SONGS AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE NEW ALBUM. SO FAR WE DIDN'T RECORDED SONG THAT ARE GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE ALBUM.

OK, CAN YOU TELL ME SOME SONG TITLES OF THE SONGS WHICH AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE ALBUM?

- NOT REALLY, I CAN'T REMEBER...

OK ULF I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST WITH YOUR PERFORMANCE TONIGHT, AND SAY HALLO TO THE REST OF THE BEND!

- OK, NO PROBLEM. AND YOU KNOW WHAT. I LIVED WITH MANY CROATS IN SWEDEN. I REALLY RESPECT THE CROATS, WHEN THEY GIVE YOU THE WORD (PROMISSE) THEY STAND FOR  IT.

So, finally it happened! For the first time I met someone from Ace of Base. Maybe this comes, 10 or 15 years too late, but I guess it's better ever than never. I went to Dubrovnik from Split on Saturday, 24th of June. It was a real pleassure to travel over beautiful Adriatic coast. The weather was really summerih, around 35°C.

Here is the bridge just before Dubrovnik:




Finaly Dubrovnik, the beautiful and historical town on the very south of Croatia:


Few more pictures of Dubrovnik:







In the evening, we go to East West Beach Club. It is placed on fameous Banjama beach, pronounced 3rd best in the world:



Around 23:30 I meet Ulf in the bar. He was very friendly. After meeting each other I showed Ulf some of my fan material. We tlaked about past of the band, and touched some actual themes. The interview with Ulf will be published soon on this site. Ulf is very pleased with hospitality in Dubrovnik and Croatia in generas. As he said, he comes to Croatia every year, and this time he stayed the longest - 20 day. He is on the vacation with his family, wife and his son. Ulf will become father in september once again. We gave Ulf a present, and than he performed in the Club as a DJ: Ulf played latest club hits, and after 2 hours he played the hits of he '90s incl. 3 Ace of Base hits: All that she wants, Beautiful life and Cruel summer. 

Here are the pictures:

Today I made an interview with Ulf. It was possible because of the major help of Zoran Vladic, the godfather of Ulf's son. Zoran is also the owner of the club where Ulf will performe as a DJ this Saturday. I spoked with Ulf about 15 minutes. I recorded the intervju via my digital cam, and than I put it to the PC. I must say that strange thing happen, I can't find the first part of the interview anywhere, maybe it's hidden somewhere… But I uploaded the last part of the intervju (3 minutes). All in all, I asked Ulf about his holidays in Croatia, he said that Croatia and esp. Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful places for vacation in the world. He will play this Saturday as a DJ in the club just for fun, not professionaly. The gig starts around midnight, and I will meet Ulf one hour earlier. If anyone is interested to meet Ulf with me pleas contact me at radesnow@yahoo.com

I asked about the new album. I was quiet angry at Ulf beacause I sad it is  very unfair towards the fans to say so often that the new album comes soon. He said that the record companies are to blame, not the band memebers. Ulf said that the bend member have strong will to make an album. But it won't come out at least in one year. And I think that's about it. He also said that few songs are finished. And that they have more than 200 demo singles. But they don't want to publish an album before they are completely ready for that. That means two things: they have to have very good songs, and more imortant they have to be mentaly ready for new album. I told Ulf that they should do more original music than with Da Capo. Poppy songs are out. Ulf said that the strange thing is that the whole first album (which was mega succesfull) was completely made by the computers. The big role in the sound played legend Dennis Pop. On other albums they used some real sounds - instruments.  Ulf said that he hear more and more music that soundd like early '90s on american radio stations, so this could mean that new Ace of Base would be Ace of Base of 1992. Ulf doesn't think that Malin is ready to take the front place in the band once again, she will do the vocals, but probably won't tour with other aces. Malin returned to the University once again whre she studies now. Finaly Ulf said that he thinks that last year's performances in Belgium were success, the band enjoyed the gigs, and fans were happy too. He said that something like that is possible once again before the new album.

Here is the intervju with Ulf (WMA format, 1,56mB).

Click on the picture below, that's Ulf in Dubrovnik last year!

Ulf is spending his holidays in beautiful city of Dubrovnik in Croatia. He will perform as a DJ in the local club on saturday evening. Slobodna Dalmacija, the local Newspapers brings the interview with Ulf Ekberg. Here is the fast  translation,  sorry for  bad grammar!

ALL THAT SHE WANTS – WE DISCOVERED AN ACE O BASE MEMBER IN TOWN UNDER SRĐ (LOCAL MOUNTAIN), HE CAME TO ENJOY BUT ASLO TO PLAY

 BUDDHA FROM ACE OF BASE IS SPENDING HIS HOLIDAYS IN DUBROVNIK WITH HIS FAMILY

 Dubrovnik's Eastwest Beach Club, thanks to it's atractive beach and to the most beautiful view towards the ancient center of the city, became one of the most fameous night-life places during the long Adriatic summer in last few years. A lot of celebrities visited this club and drunk the coctails at Banjama, such as Swedish king, footballer Rio Ferdinand, actress Tara Reid, swedish popo model Carolin and many more.Now the list have been updated with another celebrity – Ulf Ekberg from pop band Ace of Base, whic was very popular during the '90s, when they were winning biggest awards like Billboard.

«I adore Dubrovnik» sais Ulf, known under nickname Buddha. We took the chance to chat with Buddha, who seems to be surprised with the early closing of the night clubs and meeting place sin Dubrovnik at night. «It is a real catastrophy to turn of the musi cin clubs at night in touristic centers like Dubrovnik. There is no fun without the music, and at least at summer it should be played longer than in winter…», noticed Ulf.

Swedish group Ace of Base, which makes Ulf together with 3 Berggren siblings, is probably of the rare groups that entered the Guiness book of records. Their hit All that she wants stayed for a months at the top of the charts, and their first album was sold im more than 23 mill. of copies. After last year's concerts in Belgium, where they played live, and in the pause of recording the new album, Ulf is spending his holidays together with the familiy at his friend and godfather Zoran Vladic. "Zoran is my perosonal oldtime friend and he became my godfather. I am the godfather to his 4-years old daughter Aurora, and he became the godfather to my one-year old son Wigg Viking. Ulf is spending the holidays in Dubrovnik with his son and wife Johana, and they live in Marbela, Spain. Ulf will perform as a DJ in Eastwest Beach club on saturday, 24th of Juny. "This is an axclusive news", said Ulf.
