| International DJ sensation Bob Sinclar is set to spin his magic in the Kingdom, taking fans on a funk-tastical ride.
Isn’t this your favourite time of the year? The sun is warm and balmy, the wind blows cold, F1 hustle-bustle is all around, the Spring of Culture is in full swing and some of the biggest entertainment gigs are all coming up.
Along with attracting the attention of the motoring, business and glamour world, April in Bahrain is all about stellar acts — not tributes, this is the real deal. On April 17, head to Bushido Restaurant & Lounge, as DJ/ producer Bob Sinclar gets behind the decks.
Dubbed as the ‘man who put the groove back onto the dance floor’, Bob is behind club hits like Gymtonic, The Ghetto and I Feel for You.
Bob Sinclar was born Christophe Le Friant but came up with his DJ alias after watching Philippe de Broca’s French spy movie Le Magnifique. He wanted to be an eccentric disco hero, a ladies’ man and a spy; somewhat along the lines of James Bond, but much cooler.
Bob shot to fame in 1998 with a co-production with Thomas Bangalter. Released as part of his first album Paradise this funked-up, pumping, vocal house track has caught the world’s attention and captured peoples’ imaginations.
His fascination with electronic music began after he saw a DJ play two records together at Le Palace in Paris. He recalls it as the happiest time of his life. Growing up in Le Marais, one of the most happening and colourful neighbourhoods of Paris, young Christophe soon started being part of the city’s exclusive, late 80s’ club scene.
In 1994 Christophe and DJ Yellow started Yellow Productions. Having signed artists like Dimitri from Paris, they became the first French label to branch out into the funky disco groove that became famous as the mid-90s’ French sound.
In 2005, a track called Love Generation was released followed by World Hold On. This propelled his name and music to every corner of the world. Bob Sinclar was number one around the world, was featured on countless compilations and got played on radio stations across the globe.
Whether it’s the deep and soulful beats of his Africanism movement or his near-obsession with reggae and dance hall influences, there’s no party like a Bob Sinclar party.
