ClekClekBoom was born in 2007, created by Jonathan Chaoul aka Ministre X and Adrien Creuse aka The Boo. Since 2007 ClekClekBoom has developed a lot to and in 2011 re-structured as a record label owned in part by its artists and bringing on board Steve Paton aka “4th Wave” formerly on Carl Craig’s Planet E label, to grow further. 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.
Up this week in our mix series, ClekClekBoom affiliate Aleqs Notal offers a full-scope vision of his subtle blends of Afrobeat-imbued polyrhythms, classic US house and boogie-splattered floor mechanics. Time to get down!
While some could argue that the Parisian has for too long lurked in the shadows of other peers and predecessors, Comfort Zone will surely leave no doubt in his stylistic capabilities, unleashing a four track EP of ghetto house goodness.
Coni recently released his new ‘Comfort Zone EP‘ on ClekClekBoom. We invited Coni to record a mix and discuss his new record, musical heritage and involvement with the ClekClekBoom collective. Coni also discusses his studio setup, approach to production and his experience of London.
