Antoine Clamaran (born 1964) is a French house music artist and music remixer. Clamaran was born in Paris. In the early 90's, his local fame interested Maximum FM, the leading parisian dance radio station at that time. Impressed by his mixing gift, Clamaran gained a huge audience and started to be booked for one off parties. But Palace headquarters (Palace in Paris is the NYC equivalent of Studio 54) asked him to run the mythical Gay Tea Dance every Sunday, instead of French icon Laurent Garnier.

Biography

In 1992 Clamaran, eager to get involved into production, teamed up with Laurent Pautrat. Their first Production "I've got music in me" by 400Hz made him one of the most promising French producers. Released on House Trade Records, this track was licensed by BMG France and sold over 100,000 units.

Then record companies started to flood Clamaran with remixing requests such as : "funky music" by Calvin Stone, "oxygene" by Jean Michel Jarre, "party time" by Gloria Estefan, "you spin me round" by Dead or Alive and "Encore Une Fois" by Euro smash. His own productions under the names of Carayca, 400HZ, D Plac, LAC, Unchain & House Train were always at the top the DJ playlists but it was not until 1998 was he again to enter the French top 50 best-sellers list.

As a DJ he switched his residency from Palace to the Temple of Dance in Paris: Le Queen.

During 1998 he produced 3 club smashes under the name Omega: "Dreaming Of A Better World", "Peace & Harmony", "The Mission". All these tracks went gold status in France (250,000 units) but didn't make any sales abroad.

By 1999, Clamaran had reached a blockbuster status in France but he chose to come back to house music, leaving behind the commercial path laid out for him. He decided to produce tracks under his own name and oriented for the international markets. His first productions under his name; "Do The Funk", "Get Up" and "After", were written with the now famous "french filtered sound".

These tracks were licensed by US based label Filtered records and released on the Discoland EP. The record became a "must have" for most of the world's key DJs including Boris Duglosch, Erick Morillo, Pete Tong, Danny Rampling and Robbie Rivera. With "We Come To Party" feat. Blue James (Basement jaxx singer), the filtered disco style of Clamaran, became an asset for the house community.

In 1999, a few days before new year's eve, Clap production (Clamaran /Pautrat label) merged into Penso Positivo (firm of another famous DJ in France : Claude Monnet).

Antoine is now managing 4 labels, as producer and a&r, within Penso Possitivo: Academy, North Club, House Trade Records and Basic traxx.

In 2000, he achieved charts success with Vibration INC. Antoine Clamaran is currently the resident in the two biggest parisian clubs: Les Bains Douches and Le Queen.
