Over the course of his career, Bob Sinclar is a man with many faces and sounds. From his time as the Mighty Bop (downtempo hip-hop), Réminiscence Quartet (acid jazz) and of course Bob Sinclar (house), where he became one of the pioneers of French house music.
His real name is Christophe LeFriant and began DJing in 1987 while still a teenager. He stole his Bob Sinclar moniker from a classic french film, and put out an EP quickly followed by an album called "Paradise" which featured "The Ghetto" and "Ultimate Funk" plus a catchy song that had a chorus inadvertadly supplied by Jane Fonda - Sinclar had ripped it from her workout tape. Unfortunately Fonda caught wind of the illegal use and threatened legal action (the album was later released without the samples used).
In 2000 he released the house classic "Champs Elysées", where he showed the “french touch” of constructing house music (heavy use of sampling and using filtered disco strings), with the song “Feel for You”, hit #9 in the UK Top 40.
Over the last couple of years Sinclar has enjoyed considerable success off the back of radio-friendly songs such as “Love Generation”, (reached #1 on the Australian ARIA Singles Charts as well as #1 in Germnay, and #2 in Holland).
The followup hit was “World, Hold On”, which charted in the top ten in most the Europe, with the E-Smoove remix being nominated for a Grammy 2007 in the category “Remixed Recording”. The song “World Hold on” was also chosen by Billboard Magazine as the number one Hot Dance Club Play Single of 2006.
