His name is Bob. Bob Sinclar. Behind that nickname now synonymous with hit records is a DJ/producer born in '69, Christophe aka Chris The French Kiss.

The magic is ever-present in his new album "Born In 69", a record that has "classic" written all over it: "Belly Dancer" and its R&B Soca vocal provided by Kevin Lyttle over an arab rhythm, the surprising cover of "Mr Tambourine Man" by Adam Joseph, a folk singer discovered on Myspace, "Jamaïca Avenue" and its Eddy Grant-style vocals by Tony Rebel or "New New New" featuring Queen Ifrica from Jamaica and Vibrate from Martinique. Another crazy idea: making a daring blend of "Je ne t’aime plus" by Manu Chao and the voice of Shabba Ranks on a track called "Love You No More".

"I hit upon the Born In 69 concept when looking for something linked to the Peace & Love / Flower power themes with folk voices. My 40th birthday is on 10th May, and the album is released on the 11th. It’s a great gift", concludes DJ/producer Bob Sinclar. With this album full of fun and dance gems, Chris doesn’t just wish himself a happy birthday: he offers the world a collection of songs that will please the crowd and make people forget the economic crisis. It’s pretty obvious: Bob Sinclar is back.
