Christophe began working in the music industry in the 1980s. Then he started working as a DJ under the name Chris the French Kiss, and he mostly used hip-hop and jazz tune for his assignments. During his time as a member of The Mighty Bop and Reminiscence Quartet, Christophe used the stage name Desmond K. While with the Quartet, he worked with an ensemble of musicians. In 1994, he decided to launch his own record label, Yellow Productions, in collaboration with his friend DJ Yellow. With the passage of time, they brought other musicians and formed to create their own musical techniques and styles.
From then on, Christophe adopted his name “Bob Sinclar” after getting inspiration from the movie “The Magnificent” in 1998; he started making house music using samples of disco strings and filtered and filtered samples of music house, a style he called the “French touch”, which became the style of music he considered synonymous with peace and love. Two years later, after casting his first album, Paradise, in 1998, he released his second album, Champs Elysées. They both were released through Yellow Productions. With his contribution to a number of international hits, he has amassed a significant net worth and several of his songs have succeeded very well in Europe, including “Love Generation,” featured on Sinclar’s Western Dream album, which remained in the top 10 of the German charts for the longest period of time. One of his songs that is famous is “World, Hold On”. This popular song features Steve Edwards.
As a by-product, he released a single in 2012 named “Rock the Boat” which featured Armando Perez. Since 2003, Sinclar has released 15 albums, including “Paris By Night” in 2013. His accomplishments have won him numerous awards, such as the TMF Award for Best International Dance (Belgium) in 2006. All his efforts have increased his net worth over the years.
He collaborated with Dawn Tallman on a track called “Feel the Vibe” in 2015. A track called “Someone Who Needs Me” was released in 2016 on the Spinnin’ Records label. He also recorded a collaboration with Akon called “‘Til the Sun Rise Up” for Spinnin’ Records. He has become very popular in Europe and Italy since June 2018 when he released a single titled “I Believe”.
In addition to his remixes of songs by artists such as Rihanna, Madonna, Moby, and James Brown, Bob Sinclar has produced dozens of official remixes throughout his career.
