Pierre David Guetta born 7 November 1967) is a French DJ, music programmer, record producer, and songwriter. He has sold over nine million albums and thirty million singles worldwide. In 2011, Guetta was voted as the number one DJ in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll. In 2013, Billboard crowned “When Love Takes Over” with Kelly Rowland as the number-one dance-pop collaboration of all time.
David Guetta had already been involved in the club scene since 1984 – 2000. However, it wasn’t until he and partner Joachim Garraud collaborated with the American Gospel singer Chris Willis for a series of songs including their first single “Just a Little More Love.” That collaboration spawned several more releases and the eventual compilation of F*ck Me I’m Famous. in 2003.
In 2004, their collaborations continued with the release of Guetta Blaster. After releasing four semi-successful singles it was a mashup of “Just a Little More Love” and the Tocadisco remix of The Egg’s “Walking Away” titled “Love Don’t Let Me Go (Walking Away)” that blew up the global dance floors. The rest they say is history.
We all know the name David Guetta as one of the most successful DJs, producers, and songwriters of the early millennium. His superstar status skyrocketed with the massively successful “When Love Takes Over” with Kelly Rowland and later “Titanium” with Sia.
As the dance music world evolved, so did his style. He went from Electro-House to EDM and now Future House, Reggaeton, and whatever the current trend in dance music takes him. David Guetta is still in high demand and often releases tracks under his pseudonym Jack Black. He just had a number-one Billboard Dance Club hit with “Put Your Phone Down (Low)” not to mention the wildly successful “Wild Ones” with Nicky Romero and Sia.
You could say that David Guetta paved the way for other superstar DJs like Avicii, Calvin Harris, Marshmello, and The Chainsmokers by elevating these folks not just from being a DJ or dance party promoters but to multi-talented artists in their own right.
It’s with great love and respect for the man and his music that Party Favorz recognizes the very talented David Guetta with an induction into our Legacy series. There are a lot of memories built into this set and I fully expect a lot of you to fall back on your heels when you hear a lot of these older tracks again. 10 years ago was not that far back but many of these songs are now considered classics.
Because his output is so extensive, I attempted to culminate some of his early work with the majority of his biggest hits, which ultimately span two sets. Expect volume 2 to drop tomorrow. Until then…ENJOY!
