Von Der Burg biography

Producers and songwriters Jonas Von Der Burg and Niclas Von Der Burg did songwriting, production and remixing for names like Leila K, Da Buzz, Velvet, September, Alcazar, Ace of Base, E-Type, Lucky Twice and many more.

Niclas von der Burg started out as a professional guitar/bass guitar player in the early 90's, touring all over Europe with Swedish pop act Stakka Bo. Jonas started his productional career by building a studio in 1990, in the outskirts of Stockholm. He signed a publishing deal with CBS songs, which became Sony/ATV Music Publishing in 1991. Jonas had his first major success as songwriter and producer in 1993 with Stakka Bo's smash hit Here We Go.

In 1996 Niclas decided to focus all his attention on songwriting, a decision that soon proved to be the right one, giving him cuts on platinum-selling albums by artists such as Ace of Base and Sanne Salomonsen. When Niclas signed his first contract with EMI Music Publishing in 2001 he started developing the ideas which have now made him one of Sweden's most successful songwriters and an up and coming star on the global market.

In 2002, he teamed up with Jonas von der Burg and songwriter Anoo Bhagavan, with the explicit goal of finding and developing artists and writing/producing entire albums for them. The main focus was on dance/pop acts for both radio and dance floor. The trio got off to a flying start when they discovered 18-year old female dance/pop vocalist September, and the first single La La La (Never Give It Up) was released in the spring of 2003. The song was a huge radio and chart hit in Sweden and the next two singles We Can Do It and September All Over followed in the same fashion. The album, September, was released in the fall of 2003.

In the following year Niclas and his partners wrote three gold-selling singles (This Is The World We Live In, Physical and Start The Fire) for Swedish disco divas Alcazar. The Album Dancefloor Deluxe quickly reached platinum status, due to the huge success of the singles, especially This Is The World We Live In, which was a major European hit finding top 20 spots on both the UK and the German singles charts. The trio now moved on to writing/producing two major hit singles for Swedish dance/pop act Velvet.

At the end of 2004, Niclas, Jonas and Anoo started working on what was to be their major breakthrough as a team, the second September album. The first single Satellites, released in May 2005, was an instant hit in Sweden and quickly reached platinum status. The song refused to die and was one of the most played songs on both commercial and national radio stations all through 2005, and one of the most downloaded songs on iTunes. The credible Swedish music magazine Sonic named it one of the best 15 euro disco songs of all time, writing: "The team of producers behind this lush dream, painted in equal parts viscose and house, have understood the genius of the eternally simple". The second single Looking For Love was released in October 2005 and and also made it to the top of the charts. The album In Orbit followed soon after and was awarded "Best Club/Dance Album" at the Swedish Grammy Awards 2006 and "Best Dance" at the Nordic NRJ Radio Awards in Helsinki.

The world was now starting to pay attention to September and the three songwriters behind her. Deals were quickly signed with 54 countries including USA, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Russia and Australia. At the moment September is speeding up the charts in Spain and France and is soon to be released in the UK, USA & Germany.

Meanwhile, Niclas von der Burg and his collaborators have moved on to the new, very promising pop duo Lucky Twice, consisting of two 16-year old girls. Their single Lucky had a lot of success in France and Spain.
