Bob Sinclar (real name Christophe LeFriant?, born 1967) is a French record producer, DJ, remixer and owner of the label Yellow Productions.
Sinclar started DJing in 1986, when he was just 18 years old, specializing in funk and hip-hop music, with the name Chris The French Kiss. His first club hit was "Gym & Tonic", a collaboration with Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk, featuring vocals illegally taken from a Jane Fonda fitness tape. The Bob Sinclar persona was based on a character from Philippe de Broca's film Le Magnifique.
Sinclar is famous for popularizing the "french touch" of house music, with heavy use of sampled and filtered disco strings. His track "I Feel For You", a tribute to French musician Cerrone, from his second album Champs ElysÃ©es, hit #9 in the UK Top 40. On track "Darlin'", he worked with vocalist James "D-Train" Williams.
