David Guetta, DJ Superstar, résident FG DJ Radio



Peu de DJs de l’histoire sont devenus des pop-stars de l'envergure de David Guetta, alignant les disques d’or et se produisant régulièrement devant des milliers de personnes tous les soirs. Lorsque David Guetta a publié « Just A Little More Love » en 2001, il ne pouvait pas imaginer le succès que son premier album allait immédiatement rencontrer. Certes,

David Guetta a de surcroît réussi à imposer sa griffe à l’étranger en se produisant aussi bien à New York qu’à Tokyo, au Coachella Festival de Los Angeles qu’à Rio. Après deux albums studios et trois volumes de sa compilation « F*** me I'm famous », totalisant 800 000 ventes, David Guetta se prépare déjà à réaliser le carton de l’été, avec « Love Is Gone », premier extrait de «Pop Life ».

Soirées à Ibiza, F*** me I'm Famous, Musique, Mix :  David Guetta, un DJ International

 


On ne change pas une équipe qui gagne : le co-producteur et arrangeur Joachim Garraud et les vocalistes Chris Willis et JD Davis, associés à tous les tubes de David Guetta, sont plus que jamais présents sur le successeur de «Guetta Blaster».

Plus que jamais fidèle à sa communauté DJ, la formule de « Pop Life » demeure toujours : un groove house, des voix gospel, et des sons acid ou new-wave, le tout pulsant avec une énergie communicative. David Guetta reste fidèle aux influences de son adolescence, quand il reprend « This Is Not A Love Song » de Public Image Limited mais également quand il invite Cathy Dennis (collaboratrice de Kylie Minogue) à participer à l’écriture de « Baby When The Light », les producteurs suédois Steve Angelo & Sebastian Ingrosso, Tocadisco de Cologne, la découverte Cozi, et la diva garage de légende Tara McDonald. 

Avec Pop Life David Guetta fournit de l'excellente musique à Cathy Guetta pour toutes les soirées



De « Winner of the Game » à « Everytime You Touch » en passant par l’underground « Joan Of Arc » ou « Delirious» au parfum baléarique, qui va cartonner dans les afters d’Ibiza, les nouveaux titres de David Guetta devraient susciter à nouveau de nombreux remixes à succès, comme le tube de l'été dernier David Guetta vs The Egg « Love Don’t Let me Go (walkin away) » et qui fut classé N°3 en Angleterre à l’été 2006.

David Guetta "Pop Life" sortie le 18 juin.

Biography of David Guetta :

 

 

David Guetta in residence on FG DJ Radio

With his third long-playing album Pop Life, the return of the legendary ‘Fuck Me I’m Famous’ parties in Ibiza and massive bookings all over Europe and the US, the superstar DJ is taking things to the next level. A household name in his native France, the multi-million selling producer, recording artist and promoter has found the rest of the world is rapidly catching up.

“I just came back from Coachella,” he says, of LA’s revered rock festival. “It was huge! I saw an article in [America’s biggest national paper] USA Today that said the highlights of the festival were Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Arctic Monkeys, Rage Against The Machine… and David Guetta. That’s crazy! I was really impressed.”

These nights are amazing : F*** me I m Famous



Yet perhaps the only crazy thing is: what took them so long? David Guetta has been DJing since the age of 17, when he first spun tunes at the Broad club in Paris. Throughout the early Nineties, he continued to wow crowds playing an eclectic party set of house, hip-hop and garage at Parisian venues as diverse as Le Centrale, Le Boy and notorious former cabaret spot Folies Pigalle. Many people would be more than content with this. But it remained important to David Guetta to take his music to as wide – and diverse – an audience as possible.

“For me, it is all about sharing my passion with people,” he says. “That is why I am a DJ. A lot of producers, they don’t think it’s cool to play for people. But even in the studio I love to play for my friends. When I DJ, I play for the party – because I love to share my music.”

David Guetta : an International DJ



At first, taking his music to the rest of the world proved to be an eye-opener. “I went from a business class ticket to easyJet,” he laughs. “Which is totally fine with me. It was really funny more than anything.” Hitting Ibiza, the English and US holidaymakers were initially not too sure what to make of David and his team handing out flyers full of exotic-sounding French names.

“People would laugh at us,” he remembers. “Especially the British people.” They weren’t laughing for long. As Daft Punk, Cassius and the rest of the French dance scene exploded, David’s Ibizan ‘Fuck Me I’m Famous’ nights became the Number One destination, thanks to an ethos that harked back to the original spirit of clubbing.

 Ibiza and Cathy Guetta, two components to spend good time


“The idea is to have people who don’t normally mix,” says David, of the hugely successful nights he runs with his wife Cathy. “Clubbing had become like ghettos again, when it comes to my own night I try to do something different. At my night the social barriers come down – there are not many places where you can find a superstar next to a billionaire, a model dancing next to a student.”

What started as an ironic name – David Guetta wasn’t well-known at all outside France – ‘Fuck Me I’m Famous’ soon proved apt, with everyone from Kate Moss to Penelope Cruz to P Diddy joining the fortnightly pilgrimage, fired up by David’s skills as an irresistible party DJ. “My wife brings the glamorous people,” he admits, “and I bring the crazies.”

By now David Guetta had become one of the most in-demand DJs in the world, headlining nights in America, Australia, Japan, South America and beyond. Meanwhile, David’s career as a recording artist was blasting off into the stratosphere. His first two albums Just A Little More Love (2002) and Guetta Blaster (2004) had already reached 2 x gold in Europe, while the Wally Lopez mix of ‘Just A Little More Love’ became David’s first UK hit in 2003, and remains a deathless Ibiza anthem to this day. In 2005 he was nominated for a Grammy for his remix of Deep Dish’s ‘Flashdance’ and earned that rarest of seals of approval – the invitation to remix David Bowie, in the shape of his peerless “‘Heroes’” track. He was named DJ Of The Year at London’s House Music Awards. Then, in 2006, David Guetta vs The Egg’s mash-up ‘Love Don’t Let Me Go (Walking Away)’ was a Top 10 smash around the world. In the UK it held the Top 20 for over two months! Meanwhile, three Fuck Me I’m Famous triple gold-selling mix CDs, together with a record label of the same name, plus roadblock nights at the Miami Winter Music Conference, soon ensured FMIF was one of clubland’s most revered brands. The Guetta Sound was truly becoming a global phenomenon. “I am like a tightrope walker,” David admits. “It is difficult, but my goal is that the super-cool DJs of the world play me, but I’m being played on the radio, too. That’s very hard.”

"We can be Heroes just for one day" simple but efficient


But David Guetta is about to show that gift is no fluke. The 14 tracks on new album Pop Life prove we’re dealing with the rarest of talents – someone who can move hearts and minds on the dancefloor and the Top 40. “It’s a balancing trick,” he says. “When you make a track for the club, it is the repetitiveness that makes it work best; so it becomes hypnotic, like a trance. But when you listen at home, you look for music with a lot of changes – because that is what gives it emotion. And I love emotion. So I have to have both.”

Hitting the ground running with two huge tracks, ‘Love Is Gone’ (classic Guetta, featuring Chris ‘Just A Little More Love’ Willis on vocals) and ‘Baby When The Light’ (“The total opposite of what I usually do… a very feminine kind of fragility”), Pop Life features co-writes for the first time – with Cathy Guetta ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ Dennis and Karen Poole (Jamelia/Girls Aloud/Lily Allen), to name two – and it’s David best album to date, destined to be the soundtrack to this summer and beyond. It’s also suitably-named, from the one DJ who knows pop isn’t a dirty word; whose club nights are open to one and all.

Pop Life a new kind of pop, as Delirious, David Guetta's version

“Yeah, some DJs say pop is a dirty word, but I’m trying to be different!” he says. “Of course dance music is pop music! I’m always faithful to my community, but this album also has big, quality pop melodies. It’s the best album I’ve produced. I’m really happy and proud of it.”
