Most of us come under the spell of the electronic cosmos sooner or later, but doing so at the tender age of 4 years rather seems highly exceptional. And even if this might appear almost impossible at first glance, this was indeed the case for young Christoph alias Click † Click, when he heard Kraftwerk for the very first time on the radio back then.
Therefore, it is no surprise that this experience was going to change his life significantly. His name thereby originates from his earliest musical roots when he was still forfeited to the more minimal sounds of Techno and in which time he also started his first own label Kassette Records in the year 2006. And even if much has happened since and a lot changed musically, Click † Click always remained true to his roots by keeping his name.
Through his musical transformation from Minimal Techno to Jackin‘ House, also the labels changed in the course of time, on which we have been able to pursue his musical talent over the years.
In 2013, he already established his second labels Palms & Flamingos, meant to provide room for exactly such projects, which had developed over the years. Of course it did not take long, until many reputable labels of the scene got wind of his artistic refinement. Like this, Click † Click already put out numerous releases on imprints like Green Velvet/ Cajmere’s Cajual, Shir Khan’s Exploited Ghetto, Mihalis Safras‘ Label Mr. Carter/Material and Riva Starr’s Snatch!
Records, which not only lead to countless chart positions on relevant platforms, but also caused further international interest in his music.
Productions like Teenage Killerfunkband (2010), Ducks In The Kiddie Pool (2013), Girls Girls Girls (2013), The Muzic Box (2015) or Birdhain (2017) made their way into the crates of scene pioneers like Magda, Jamie Jones, Green Velvet or Claude VonStroke. This diversified and respectable appreciation of his creative doing naturally provided him with numerous national and international performances in the best clubs and most important festivals of the world as well.
Like that, he already played in such reputable venues like the Watergate Berlin, Ministry of Sound London or D-Edge Sao Paulo, as well as the meanwhile relocated to Portugal BPM Festival Mexico or the Monarch/ Great Northern in San Francisco. Also his successfully completed tours through varying countries like Brazil, Mexico, USA, China, South Korea or Thailand make unmistakably clear, that the name Click † Click should not be forgotten too quickly.
