Bob Sinclair is In The House

Well known French DJ and producer Christophe Le Friant, aka Bob Sinclar is about to release his first ever mix CD this Monday on Defected Records. Sinclar has been working hard to find the great exclusives every In The House has. He included his of Martin Solveig's forthcoming single Jealousy, some very rare tracks from George Duke and Cerrone and a brand new track from Julien Jarbe. Besides the two CDs he exceeded his brief with a full-length, lounge-tinged mix on disc 3, rich in seductive Latin and jazz rhythms.

To win one of the 3 copies of Sinclair's first mix CD which BeatFactor is giving away, simply enter the competition below:

Until in '84, a raft of pirate radio stations across the French capital threw Le Friant, and a whole generation, a musical lifeline. Retro soul, rare groove, funk and disco were the basis of Le Friant's early education, but it was hip-hop's explosion in France in '89 which filled him with the will to spin. Cutting his teeth with his own hip-hop nights, he made his first recordings in acid jazz and trip-hop outfits The Mighty Bop and Reminiscence Quartet in the mid-'90s. Then, in '98, while other innovators like Daft Punk, Air, and Dimitri from Paris were establishing an unprecedented, world-class pedigree for new French music, Le Friant unleashed a shiny new incarnation – part superspy, part high-class gigolo, part '70s catalogue model and 100% fast-living ladies' man, Bob Sinclar also became that day a gentleman pimp of breathless, feel-good disco house sounds to Paris's party people.

"Defected is a very special label to me. They were the first UK label to invite me to work with them, seven years ago, and we had a top ten back then with I Feel For You. I'm a loyal guy, I like to work with the same people when they are the right people, and Defected remains true to its values, its style and its mission of quality."

He even made a lightning visit to London to film an exclusive interview for Defected at The Key, which can be viewed at www.defected.com, and in which he speaks of the childhood sporting dreams that made way for music, explains how come the French are so damn good at image-making, and why Yugoslavian shopping malls throw the best parties in the world.

"My goal is to mix styles to create something new and exciting. As a DJ, you must show who you are through your music, tell your story, show your roots,' Sinclar purrs in his insanely charming Gallic burr. 'And you must make dance ze people."
