A PHANTOM CONVERSATION

Here it is - the tribute to my alltime heroes - the soundtrack of my life: DURAN DURAN! 

Since my new album is a perfect mixture of 80s and current styles, this should of course not be missing!

The lyrics are about a virtual love affair, that starts online and ends up in reality and the video

was shot during an absolute wonderful trip to Venice, where we shot unforgettable scenes on

the Canale Grande and in the heart of this beautiful place. The Band Scenes were filmed in the

great PIXX SUPERSTUDIO in Hamburg together with my band!

ANYONE AWAKE?

We captured the video for ANYONE AWAKE in the MASPALOMAS dunes of Grand Canaria. In order to emphasize the central message of the song, NEWS graphics form the counterpart and communicate keywords and headlines. I'll never forget the imposing landscape and the atmosphere early in the morning in the middle of the desert!

INTERVIEW WITH STEREO STICKMAN

INVISIBLE MAN

The video for INVISIBLE MAN was created in a paternoster-lift (the one that runs non-stop) and that was

an unforgettable experience and also a logistical challenge!

 

We started with the vocal passages, which had to be captured perfectly in sync. With countless takes and a lot of fun, the other recordings with the entire band were made. In order to establish the relationship to the title, the idea of installing a real "INVISIBLE MAN" in the style of the well-known film series of the 50s came up during the recording. We reserved this appearance for the showdown of the video and the Invisible Man was played by nobody else than my mother!

TOMORROW FADES AWAY

The video for the second single was recorded in the south of France in Cannes, Nice and San Tropez.

The central message of the song: Let us all LIVE IN THE MOMENT and without thinking too much about TOMORROW. We shot the introduction in front of the legendary CARLTON HOTEL, where Cary Grant was already walking across the zebra crossing in Hitchcock's "TO CATCH A THIEF"!

 

The B/W recordings become more and more colorful in the course of the clip and end in the showdown, which was recorded early in the morning on the pebble beach of Nice in full color gamut. To make the story appear more realistic, another studio level was added designed in which most of the vocal passages could take place.

BIG BUBBLE

As a big fan of the late 70s / early 80s, it was a matter close to my heart to bring this style into the present and to create a sound in a mixture of new wave synth-pop and current electro vibes that runs like a red thread the whole new album will pull. This song was the INITIAL SPARK of everything, that brought me back to where I belong and it felt like "phoenix from the flames", when I worked on it.

 

The omnipresent social media madness as a topic was just crying out for a flashy pop video that was made in the so-called "Supercandy Pop-Up Museum" in Cologne where I went with my close friend ROSE REBELLE aka Rebecca Hoppé to shoot some scenes for some hours. We ended up filming all weekend! In addition to pink aircraft cabins, huge candy lollys and an Eldorado with brightly colored backdrops, there was even a bubble bath!

ABOUT CHRIS

MUSIQUE NONSTOP

Synth Pop, Indietronica combined with New Wave and Disco Funk - 

THAT IS the world of German producer Chris Flyke, who is currently working on his new album „Digital Bubblegum“. Musically, Chris mixes superbe 80s Dance and Funky grooves à la Jamiroquai, bright vocoders & beats à la Daft Punk  with NuDisco-vibes à la Roosevelt! You can clearly notice the influences of his heroes Duran Duran, the Pet Shop Boys and his passion for acts like Coldplay, Keane and Miami Horror. The darkly colored indie universe and the garish world of MainstreamPop - Chris Flyke combines them perfectly!

 

Chris was born as Christopher Fleig in a small town called Elmshorn, where

he began experiencing with his first Synthesizer when he was 15.

 

While studing at Germanys famous MUSICSTATION POP ACADEMY, he recorded his first Album „Welcome To Utopia“ with some of his music lecturers and a string quartet!

 

After a while Chris began DJing and soon he played in the most famous Clubs of Hamburg. That is one of the reasons, why his 2nd album „STEREO GALAXY“ sounds so different from the first one. The title track of the album became a club hit and was included on the No.1 Album „The Disco Boys Vol 5“.

 

Besides his own projects, Chris worked with a lot of other musicians f.e.

„THE VOICE“ super talent PERCIVAL, German Entertainer Sweetheart Annie Heger and the German Pop Duo ELBGLANZ, who topped the Radio Charts in 2017.

 

Since the beginning of 2019, Chris has been working on his 3rd album:

DIGITAL BUBBLEGUM is expected to release in 2021.
