David Guetta has become the world’s biggest DJ, changing the perception of his art-form, headlining all-genre music festivals, filling stadiums and yet still gets up-close with his fans in his beloved clubs. He has sold over 5 million albums and 17 million singles throughout his career. His last album One Love and accompanying re-release One More Love spawned such hit singles as “Sexy Bitch” featuring Akon (#1 in the UK, 3x platinum in the U.S.), “When Love Takes Over” featuring Kelly Rowland (11 weeks at #1 airplay across Europe), “Memories” featuring Kid Cudi, “Gettin’ Over You” with Chris Willis featuring Fergie and LMFAO and his latest hit “Who’s That Chick” featuring Rihanna. ‘One Love’ boasts four #1 singles in the UK and four #1’s on the U.S. Billboard club chart. ‘One Love’ won the prestigious NRJ Music Award in France for Best International album in 2010.
Two years ago David Guetta’s dream was to build a bridge between electronic dance music and urban culture, and in that time he has won the hearts and minds of his peers in the contemporary pop world with his boundless enthusiasm, tireless work ethic and groundbreaking productions. As a result, Guetta is one of the most in-demand and influential producers in the world. Billboard Magazine said that Guetta “changed the sound of top 40” radio. In addition to the hits on One Love he was responsible for the record-breaking Black Eyed Peas smash “I Gotta Feeling” as well Flo-Rida’s #1 UK and top 10 U.S. hit “Club Can’t Handle Me.” Earlier this year, Guetta picked up his second Grammy award (Best Remixed Recording) for his remix of Madonna’s revolver. He won the same award in 2010 for his remix of his own hit “When Love Takes Over. He also recently won three 2011 World Music Awards (Best Producer, Best Music Video and Best Commercial Dance Track).
When Guetta recently teamed up with the rap icon Snoop Dogg to remix “Sweat” from Snoop’s latest album, the track quickly became inescapable on dance floors around the world and has topped the European club charts for more than 2 months.
Guetta has played over 400 shows in the last two years since the release of One Love. He began the 8th season of his legendary weekly F*** ME I’M FAMOUS party at Pacha in Ibiza last month where he will play every Thursday this summer. Guetta will return stateside to headline the Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas on June 25th, where he will play to over 100,000 ecstatic electronic music fans. He will also headline the East Coast’s largest electronic music festival, Electric Zoo in NYC on Sept. 3rd.
