Biography

Paris, France (2001 – present)

David Guetta (born November 7th, 1967 in Paris) is a French DJ.

He was the pioneer of French house with “Up & away,” a garage-style track with vocals by Robert Owens released in 1994 – really made a name for himself in the mid-90s as one of the key catalysts of Parisian nightlife by promoting evenings at such renowned Paris hot spots as Folies Pigalle, Queen, Bataclan, Palace and Les Bains, where he invited DJ legends like Little Louie Vega, David Morales, DJ Pierre and Roger Sanchez to join him on the turntables. In 2001, however, he went back to his first love: making music.

Launched by the single “Just A Little More Love,” an electro-funk-house cocktail featuring Chris Willis of the band nashville on vocals, David Guetta’s first album was released by Virgin in June 2002 and went on to sell 250,000 copies. This resounding success carried through in the album’s second, even more devastating single, “Love Don’t Let Me Go,” a track reminiscent of Moroder’s techno-disco style crossed with Depeche Mode’s new-wave sound.

Like fellow Frenchman Laurent Garnier, David started off his career in the gay clubs around Paris. Les Halles district in the mid-80s, going on to make a name for himself in acid-house and hip-hop. His first album heralded the beginning of a new DJ career – this time on a global level. Named after the parties he hosts on Ibiza, the fabled isle of techno, David’s “F*** ME I’M FAMOUS: IBIZA DJ MIX”, which featured his remix of David Bowie’s “Heroes,” went gold: no small feat for a compilation CD. For the last three years, David has been invited to mix throughout Europe on a regular basis and, more and more often, in the United States, Australia, Japan, Singapore and Israel as well.
