1981 ... the intergalactic hit that will reveal him. A mind-blowing title, out of nowhere and which will undoubtedly remain as one of the biggest Dance hits of the decade, or even of this end of the XXth century, on the French side. MAS-TER-FUL !
1982 ... in the same vein but the side completely barred in less. A barred side that made all the success of the first ...
1983 ... an obvious sound evolution. For good or for bad...? Anyway, a style that contrasts radically with previous titles ...
1984 ... a title which contains a first name particularly used in the songs of this time there, will know why ...
1985 ... the comeback in strength and success with a title that still speaks of sand. Definitely, a substance that particularly succeeds for him !
1986 ... a swaying title that looks nothing like everything he has offered so far. We will undoubtedly put this title in the category of good surprises ...
1991 ... a 100 % Rock'N'Roll ending ! Admittedly, it is a bit off the mark but it will not be enough to get back to the leading pack unfortunately ...
