ClekClekBoom was born in 2007, created by Jonathan Chaoul aka Ministre X and Adrien Creuse aka The Boo. The first purpose was to spread the music of the one and only DJ Sandrinho from Rio de Janeiro, king of Baile Funk.
Since 2007, ClekClekBoom has developed a lot to and in 2001 re-structured as a record label owned in part by its artists and bringing on board Steve Paton aka « 4th Wabe » formerly on Carl Craig’s Planet E label, to grow further and is now selling vinyl and digital downloads as well as promoting deejays and producers all over the world.
The ClekClekBoom artist roster now comprises French Fries, The Town, Ministre X, The Boo, Sandrinho DJ (who are associates of the label), plus Coni and vocal talent Sana. They represent UK Bass/Funky, House, B-More/Jersey Club, Rap Music and many more bouncy styles.
The label has already released 3 EPs on vinyl and digital. They are selling via Juno, Beatport, Boomkat and other outlets for quality music. The first EP was French Fries « Champagne/Hugz feat. Bambounou », it sold out in just a couple of weeks on vinyl. The success was major and the EP was applauded by the best DJs in the bass club music scene. The second release came from Coni, « Luz in Pool/Suma/Crush » a house and UK Bass number, which also appeared in the best charts on Beatprot. The 3rd EP is Ministre X « Subtitle of Life » deaturing the soul voices of Sana and Romy, release due in February 2012 but has already great feedback.

It’s a 90 mn mix, with special international guests from the House & Bass scene such as Todda T, Scratcha DVA, Marcus Nasty, lll Blu, Clause Von Stroke or MikeQ, just to name a few. Several podcasts were also made recently for French national radios like Radio Nova and Le Mouv’.
