Biography

The Mighty Bop is a pseudonym of Christophe Le Friant, better known by the alias Bob Sinclar. Born 10 May 1967, he is a Grammy Award-nominated French record producer, music DJ, remixer and owner of the label Yellow Productions.
Sinclar started DJing in 1986, when he was 18 years old, specialising in and music, with the name Chris The French Kiss. His first club hit was “Gym Tonic”, which was co-produced by 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.

Le Friant is famous for popularising 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 Elysées, hit #9 in the UK Top 40. On track “Darlin’”, he worked with vocalist James “D-Train” Williams.
Le Friant has also worked under other pseudonyms. Under the aliases The Mighty Bop and Reminiscence Quartet, he has dabbled in hip-hop and acid jazz. He also created the Africanism project, where an ensemble of artists produce house music with a combination of Latin, jazz, African and tribal flavours.
In 2005 he scored a hit with the single “Love Generation”, that reached #1 on the Australian ARIA Singles Charts and the German Media Control Single Charts in 2006. The song was a huge success throughout Europe, also peaking at no. 2 in the Dutch Top 40 and it stood 39 weeks in the Ultratop 50 in Belgium.
