RhoDeo 1333 Beats

Hello, mysterious things are happening in Damascus a thousand or more die from poisoning and it isn't clear who has done it, to me it would be who stands to gain the most from these victims. However,this is not the party with many resources for it, then again it could be a sabotage act from within the army to bring about the end of Assad, or finally allow them to use nervegas to smoke out the terrorists. What happened exactly, ordered by whom, will remain unclear for some time, images from a rocket say nothing in Syria to be continued.

The coming months Frenchies rule the beats and they have plenty to offer even though not that much reaches the world as  the music scene is rather dominated by the Anglo - American industry. Meanwhile the French enjoyed themselves in their own niche so to speak, and they did rather well. Today Christophe Le Friant,  born 10 May 1969 in Douarnenez, Brittany, France. Grammy Award-nominated French record producer, house music DJ & remixer, and owner of the ultra-hip independent label Yellow Productions.  ....... N'joy

The man behind such productions as the Mighty Bop (downtempo hip-hop), Bob Sinclar (house), and Réminiscence Quartet (acid jazz) is Chris the French Kiss (aka Christophe le Friant), a Parisian DJ and head of the crucial French label Yellow Productions as well as a producer. Le Friant began DJing in 1987 while still a teenager, and formed Yellow Productions in 1993 with Alain Ho. Several of the first releases on Yellow were by Le Friant: the Mighty Bop's "Messe Pour le Temps Present," Réminiscence Quartet's "Roda Mundo," and his first LP, the French hip-hop summit The Mighty Bop Meet DJ Cam et la Funk Mob. Alongside releases from a parade of excellent French sources, including DJ companions Dimitri from Paris and Kid Loco, Yellow also hosted two more Mighty Bop LPs during 1996-1997, La Vague Sensorielles and Autres Voix, Autres Blues.

Eager to inject some fun into the burgeoning French house underground, Le Friant borrowed the name Bob Sinclar (from a character in the well-known French film Le Magnifique) and in 1997 produced his first Sinclar EP, A Space Funk Project. Soon enough, he had an entire Bob Sinclar LP ready to go, and Paradise appeared on Yellow just in time for summer 1998. One of the album's tracks, "Gym Tonic," began getting some club play in France thanks to its bouncy house vibe and incessant singalong chorus (lifted from a Jane Fonda workout record). A huge anthem during the summer season in Ibiza, "Gym Tonic" looked ready to explode on the charts until Fonda sought legal action for the illegal sample. Perhaps wary of overly burdensome commercial success, the song's co-producer -- Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter, who'd just recorded his own breezy house delight, Stardust's "Music Sounds Better with You" -- refused to have even a remixed version released as a single. Nevertheless, assorted bootlegs cropped up and by October a mysterious artist named Spacedust -- probably just a major-label-fronted cash-in attempt -- hit the top of the charts in Britain with an almost identical remix of the Sinclar-Bangalter original, entitled "Gym and Tonic."

With all the offending samples removed, Sinclar's Paradise LP was re-released worldwide in 1999. He also worked on remixes, providing tracks by Bangalter himself, Ian Pooley, Second Crusade, and the Yellow project Tom & Joyce with additional production. Le Friant returned to the Mighty Bop alias in 2000 with the retrospective mix collection Spin My Hits. In 2000, he issued his first U.S. album release as Sinclar, Champs Elysées, on Subliminal Records. The 2001 release Cerrone by Bob Sinclar found him mixing his personal favorites from the back catalog of one of his big influences, Cerrone. Dropping the original concept of "Bob Sinclar" after that, the release of "III" (2003) . After climbing the dance charts in 2005 with the single "Love Generation," he released the full-length Western Dream in 2006 and established him as a popular/commercial DJ.

The following year Sinclar put out a mix-tape style CD, Soundz of Freedom, which featured remixes by the likes of Tocadisco and Axwell, alongside a clutch of new songs from the French DJ. His 2009 album Born in ’69 stepped away from his earlier disco-inspired beginnings and toward a more dancehall crossover sound which included collaborations with Shabba Ranks and Kevin Lyttle. He moved further into dub and reggae-influenced sounds in 2010 when he teamed up with legendary producers Sly & Robbie on his seventh release Made in Jamaica. The LP included reggae interpretations of some of his biggest hits, such as “Wold Hold On” and “Love Generation.” Two years later Disco Crash came, and signalled a return to his club roots. Here he revisited the big beats and synth lines that powered his rise to fame and assembled a host of artists, including Sean Paul, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Pitbull, to complete his ninth album.

This was the actual text presenting Bob Sinclar to the public in his first incarnation:
"Who is Bob Sinclar? An international man of mystery, since he first emerged in 1976 this career path has taken in spy, jewel thief. Riviera playboy, mercenary, arms smuggler, Monte Carlo card shark, Studio 54 bellboy, high-class gigolo, sunglasses model and hardcore porn star. It's also rumoured he was roped in to teach John Travolta to dance for Saturday Night Fever, but we don't want to play with the rumours - the mere facts themselves are incredible enough. Now, since his autobiography was banned worldwide for in order to protect NATO security, Bob has decided to tell his story via the medium of House music."

Paradise is the debut album by Bob Sinclar album released on May 30, 1998, on his own label Yellow Productions, Paradise with a remarkble cover includes the Thomas Bangalter remix of "Gym Tonic" plus 11 more get-on-the-dancefloor Daft Punk alter disco-house movers like "Get into the Music," "Disco 2000 Selector," and "Move Your Body."

Bob Sinclar, just slightly more of a self-publicist than Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk), seemed completely resistant to changing any of the longstanding clichés of filter-disco and the '70s nostalgia movement for his second LP, Champs Elysées. Ably summoning the spirit of the age of Cerrone and Charlie's Angels, Sinclar proved himself a solid producer despite the lack of freshness, adding in plenty of swooping strings, nickel-bag guitars, and soft-toned keyboards. "Got to Be Free" and "Darlin'" (featuring ex-D-Train vocalist James "D-Train" Williams) are a pair of disco-mover productions that wouldn't sound out of place on classic American R&B radio, and Sinclar has plenty of fun throughout the album.

Anyone who enjoys house will be familiar with the first track 'Beat goes on' it's already a modern dancefloor classic. To be fair though my favourite track is number 2 'Kiss my eyes', it's got a bit of a tango feel to it with a chunky bass line and an infectious melody. Sinclar has fused old synthetic instruments like a moog and old synths with modern sounds and recording technology. This is a blend that has been attempted by numerous artists but I've never heard it pulled off quite as well as on this album. Audiophile listeners will not be disappointed, the production of this album is second to none. However, iIt is cheesier and has more of a disco-feel, hence it is more light weight than his previous albums.
