About David Guetta
David Guetta has played a pivotal role in turning dance music into the chart-topping juggernaut it is today. His impact has been impossible to ignore, or to underestimate. He can be considered among the elite group of super-producers whose sound is synonymous with an era – such as Trevor Horn, Rick Rubin or Dr Dre. It was in 2009 that Guetta, a successful DJ and dance-music producer with three albums and a residency in Ibiza, became a trailblazing artist. He did it by fusing dance music with urban artists on fourth album – his first in terms of global mainstream success – ‘One Love’. By teaming up with some of the biggest names in hip hop and R&B, and reinventing their sound for the electronic dancefloors, Guetta created pop alchemy. The ensuing hits – such as ‘I Gotta Feeling’ with Black Eyed Peas, ‘When Love Takes Over’ with Kelly Rowland and ‘Sexy Bitch’ with Akon – propelled him to superstardom. They also set a new template for the sound of commercial radio, especially in the US. This was instrumental in turning EDM into the biggest youth movement since hip hop.
At the helm of it all, David has established himself as arguably the world’s biggest and most successful DJ of all time. From the trailblazing success of ‘One Love’, the Launchpad for taking his vision for dance music worldwide, he has scaled unprecedented heights. David was verified as (and remains) the most Shazamed artist of all time, played live to over a record 1.5 million people across the world during the course of 2014, his iconic, long-standing Pacha Ibiza residency continued to go from strength to strength and he became the first DJ in history to amass over two billion streams via Spotify in 2015. David Guetta was also confirmed as the official artist to create the sound of UEFA Euro 2016, which was held in his native France. He wrote and produced the official UEFA Euro 2016 soundtrack, which was released in the build-up to the tournament. His role was to create the musical identity for the entire tournament, which included everything from in-stadia audio to global broadcast sequences.
