He participated in many dance projects and remains particularly famous for having created the character of Boris in the late 1990s, which had huge success with the top three hit singles "Soirée disco" and "Miss Camping", and for his hit "Le Dormeur", a top ten hit in France, recorded when he was member of Pleasure Game band, in 1991.[1] He received ten Gold discs during the 1990s in Benelux.
