Hang on a minute... This morning more than a thin tissue of propaganda, disinformation and downright fibbery. Don't believe a word of it. Bob is a figment of the imagination of "Chris The French Kiss" the 31 year old Paris DJ behind club hits like "Gymtonic", "The Ghetto" and the recent smash "I Feel For You".
"Bob is an alter ego for me" he says. "It was important for me to have fun and relive that disco era. So I wanted to invent a character who was like a porn star or a disco hero or a spy - a James Bond parody, but cool, like the Fonzie".
"These days everybody's buying a sampler and doing a track", he bemoans. "There's a lot of shit around and we don't have any classics that stay in your DJ box for months. I've tried to bring that back, to refer to the Seventies and Eighties with live musicians rather than samples".
If you're expecting retro disco, the deep atmospherics of "Striptease", and the nod to electro on "Iche Rocke" should keep you guessing. This is quality, soulful house music that still rocks the party, but sounds just as good on the car stereo home. From "You are Beautiful" near ambient chill-up to the funky end-of-the nighter "Darling's" around seventies LA wearing wraparound shades whether you're partying in Paris or putting your feet up in Peterborough.
Bob Sinclar - he may not actually exist, but he's clearly still one helluya guy. Welcome to his world.
Pete Tong is Britain's best-loved dance DJ. He doesn't need an award to prove his popularity and he won't act cool to keep his credibility. The host of Radio 1's ground-breaking Essential Selection show for a staggering eight years, he works within the mainstream, but is respected by the underground.
Born in Dartford, educated in Rochester and inspired in his teens by the underground soul scene of the late seventies (and the music of the time...by the likes of Funkadelic, James Brown & Evelyn Champaign King) Pete's first DJ job was at a wedding. He was 15 years old. A natural born entrepreneur, he began promoting local bands, booking gigs in a nearby town hall and - as part of the Kent 'Soul Mafia' - playing black soul & dance music in every club that would give him a gig. After leaving school, he bought a Transit van and set up his own sound system.
Pete's knowledge of the dance underground, coupled with his ear for a crossover hit, saw him appointed A&R manager at newly-founded independent label London Records in '83. While looking after the careers of pop acts like '80s girl group Bananarama, he continued to pursue his budding radio career. Put off daytime shows by the discovery that the DJs didn't pick their own playlists, Pete accepted his own programme on Kent's newly-launched Invicta station in '84. Influenced by radio DJ heroes such as Robbie Vincent, Greg Edwards and Emperor Rosko, he hosted a soul show there for three years, before briefly returning to Radio London. Almost immediately, however, he was poached by Capital Radio, where his weekly dance programme became cult listening with London clubbers.
Inevitably, Pete managed to do both, simultaneously. FFRR's next releases were cut'n'paste production 'Bass (How Low Can You Go?)' by Simon Harris and Salt'n'Pepa's 'Push It', both cool club tracks which went on to storm the charts. They were followed by a stream of influential hits from signings such as Steve 'Silk' Hurley, D Mob, Smith & Mighty, Cookie Crew, L'il Louis The Brand New Heavies, Orbital and, of course, Goldie.
