The Swedish record producer and musician Christian Falk, most famous as the bassguitar player in one of Sweden´s biggest band in the 80s Imperiet, passed away on the 24th of july.

Christian released his first album with the band Madhouse in the early 1980s. With his role as the bassplayer of Imperiet, Falk established himself seriously in the music world. Shortly after the band broke up in 1988 Falk traveled to Nicaragua with his then two children to work in the country’s only recording studio. At this time there was a war in the country for the Nicaraguan revolution. He then worked as a producer for, among others, Robyn and Neneh Cherry. In the 1990s, he was the bassplayer of the group Blacknuss Allstars. Not until 1999 did Falk solo debut with the album “Quel Bordel”, who received three Grammy awards (best producer, best dance and best album). The song “Make it right” became a house classic.

During the 1990 – and 2000’s was Falk a successful producer, primarily in modern dance and club music. Among his clients were Whale, Papa Dee, Petter and Kayo. He published several albums under his own name as well as the series Swedish Open, where he brought club music with jazz music with musicians like Esbjörn Svensson and Jonas Kullhammar. In 2001 Falk produced the signatures for several news programmes on Swedish television.

Falk was posthumously the host of “Sommar” in P1 on national Swedish Radio July 26, 2014.
