About Boom Boom Boom Boom!!

After months of tinkering with a Roland TR-909, a Roland JP-8000, and a Casio VL-Tone VL-1 in Studio 4045, Vengaboys officially released “Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!” as a single in October 1998.

“Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!” was produced by producers Danski and Delmundo in Studio 4045. It was the fifth hit record taken from Vengaboys’ “The Party Album!” after “Parada de Tettas,” “To Brazil!”, “Up & Down” and “We Like to Party!”.

Official Video

All scenes for the official music video were shot on 16mm film. In the early 2000’s the video was digitized and uploaded to Youtube, where it has been viewed by nearly 200 million people.
