French house DJ/producer Bob Sinclar is set to play Ministry of Sound this Saturday 26 July. His special guest appearance at the club follows his recently released track, ‘Everybody’ with DJ Roland Clark, showing that Bob is back on his game and ready to impress with his blend of vocals, instrumentals and rhythm tracks.
Bob Sinclar, aka Christophe Le Friant was originally known as Chris ‘The French Kiss’. He quickly rose to fame on the back of his co-production with Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk; the Jane Fonda sampling ‘Gym ’N’ Tonic’ was featured on his first album ‘Paradise’, highlighting his reputation as possibly one of the leading artists of the house revival.
Known for mixing reggae, hip-hop, funk and acid-jazz, he began to craft out his own sound including the ‘Africanism’ and Yellow Productions electronic imprints. Then in 2005, a track called ‘Love Generation’ was released, followed in 2006 by ‘World Hold On’. Both were worldwide hits and took the name and music of Bob Sinclar stratospheric.
His ‘Defected in The House’ and ‘Night At The Playboy Mansion’ mix albums continued to put him on the musical map and in 2010 Bob travelled to Kingston, Jamaica to work with producers Sly & Robbie, giving his biggest hits a reggae-flavoured reworking that gave his ‘Best of…’ album ‘Made In Jamaica’ a creative twist. He also released ‘Tik Tok’ with dancehall star Sean Paul.
Bob will be backed up by Ministry residents Shane Kehoe, Tim Cullen and Shane Patrick in The Box.
