Bob Sinclar (born Christophe Le Friant) is a French Record Producer/DJ and owner of independent record label Yellow Productions.
Bob Sinclar quickly rose to fame on the back of his 1998 co-production with Thomas Bangalter, the Jane Fonda sampling Gym Tonic. Released as part of his first album 'Paradise' this funked-up, pumping, vocal house track caught the world's imagination and even though, to this day the track still remains a stand-out piece of work any house fan worth their salt can instantly conjure up.
Bob followed 'Paradise' with his second album 'Champs Elysees' and from that came I Feel For You and Darlin – two instant classics that cemented his position as one of the leading artists in the huge house revival of that time. But it wasn't just house music that attracted Bob. From the black roots of reggae, hip-hop, funk and acid-jazz, he began to craft out his own sound and along with other French up-and-coming artists such as Martin Solveig, David Guetta, DJ Gregory, NaSSau, Julien Jabre and more, formed the celebrated Africanism movement. Bob and his fellow artists produced tracks like Slave Nation, On The Drum and Bisou Sucre, showing off Bob's rich understanding of beat, groove and vocal flow. At the same time, the disco vibe of Cerrone further underlined his versatility and relentless passion to create music. He was unstoppable and on the back of his passion, his critically acclaimed label Yellow Productions swiftly rose to the top ranks of independent electronic imprints.
Then in 2005, a track called Love Generation was released on Yellow, followed in 2006 by World Hold On. Quite simply, both tracks took the name and the music of Bob Sinclar stratospheric. His 'Defected in the House' album found its way into countless music collections; his 'Night At The Playboy Mansion' mix double disc CD became an instant collector's item. 2009 saw Bob release 'Born in 69', and to accompany it he further indulged his passion for the playboy lifestyle by producing his own tribute to Hugh Heffner's seminal publication; Playbob. Lala Song, Peace Song and Love You No More were just some of the tracks from the album to be released and saw Bob shift back towards the sound of his Africanism genre. In 2010 Bob travelled to Kingston, Jamaica to work with world renowned producers Sly & Robbie, giving his biggest hits a reggae-flavoured reworking that gave his 'Best of…' album 'Made In Jamaica' a hugely creative twist.
Having gone quiet for a little while, Bob is back with his latest single - Someone Who Needs Me. Someone Who Needs Me is uplifting and energetic, and brings Sinclar's trademark happy vibes to the crowd like you've never heard before. Having amassed around 2 million plays on YouTube & soundcloud in a short few weeks, the catchy chorus will get party people sing along instantly and make you realize here's a track you can't do without.
His flair for blending vocals, instrumentals and rhythms into one soaring, euphoric house set still rock clubs to their very foundation wherever he touches down.
