Read the FLK aka FLixteK Interview below and share it on social media.

Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?

My name is Reik Hacke, I'm 29 years old and
I'm from Germany.
I produce Hardtek-Tribecore music under the synonym:
FLK aka Flixtek

How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?

I have been making music for 10 years now.
It all started in 2008 with a friend I started with freestyling / rapping.
But it was not enough for us to make music on finished Hip Hop instrumentals.
Shortly thereafter, we got the music program (MAGIX MUSIC MAKER) and we made something together with finished sample packs that sounded like some music in our ears.
So I began to learn more about producing music and watched videos on the internet.
Now I switched from MAGIX M.-Maker to Fruity Loops 7 and have remained true to Fruity Loops until today.
OK, I also tried Ableton and Reasons,
with other friends who also produced music.
My lust for hip hop was fast gone, my voice and song lyrics had not really good potential to continue.
So the change from hip hop to electronic music was the right decision.
My first projects helped me to develop a tact.
They also helped me to work with Vst plugins and to understand how an oscillator works.
After setting up a foundation with drums, hi-hats, snare, my passion for creating melodies began and it has remained to this day.
In 2011 I tried to produce my first Hardtek-Tribecore projects in Fruity Loops.
2012 Then I have set up a Soundcloud account under the synonym: FLK aka Flixtek.
With my track –RESOMIIE–
I slowly noticed me.
I got followers and comments on my tracks.
It was a nice feeling to get possitive feedback, which spurred me on to produce more tracks and make people dance.
I started listening to this music direction in 2006 at a Freetekno party and from the beginning I was enchanted not only by the music but also by the music around it.
The people were very relaxed and no bit arogant or boastful.
They set up their boxing system in a secluded field, which was brought to life via 2 emergency power units
as well as the small decoration lighting.
Anyone who had the desire, Vynil records or his own equipment could make music.

What´s new right now?

My first release was on the
Digital EP: Sound of Rat's (2017)
Label: Rave Forest Records

My own EP with 4 of my tracks
is currently being planned.
But will appear in 2018 under the
Label: Beatfreakz Records

I am also booked for the new Tekknotopia Festival which will be held this summer.
