That style of music.
It’s about feeling
like you’re flying.
People go out to dance, they want to have a good time.
Fist in the air, just pumping.
It’s music for me. It’s my life.
I practice it. I sleep it. It means everything to me.
I consider this the music of today.
The new dance style, it is a big part, no question.
It just stems from, I guess, the first feeling.
People have to respect what dance music is about.
Doesn’t matter if you make rap, if you make hip-hop,
if you make house music,
we all share the same passion.
To your left please.
I’ve been working on during the holidays.
So I’m really excited I can play tonight for the first time.
It’s a really exciting night,
cos I love Glasgow.
I don’t know why,
I always had kind of a special relationship with people here.
This tour is really important to me,
because it’s my first serious UK tour.
Of course I’ve played many, many times in the UK,
but this time it’s like, every day in a concert hall,
only me headlining,
so it’s important.
Do you have a name for this track?
No, it’s not the final name. Right now it’s called Midas Touch.
we kind of pick random names at the beginning
and turn it into something.
Like I have a sort of track called like,
like the place where I am, where I make the track.
Are you ready? That’s the question.
I’m always ready.
Part of the history of house music,
there was this moment when they were burning the disco records
And it was the end of disco,
but it was also a very racist act.
They were, in a way, burning black music.
And then, a few guys started
to sample old disco records,
and create their own disco records, because there was no more productions.
It was just poor black kids
with no money
who discovered all these electronic machines,
and they would make this weird, strange music.
sparse, minimal stuff.
So the DJs that wanted to keep on making this music
would program drum machines
and add little pieces of records
that they would loop.
And this is how, actually, house music was born,
by recycling disco into something new.
There’s something really special here.
When the party’s good,
the cheer, and it go like,
‘here we, here we,
here we f***ing go!’
And at the beginning of that,
the whole room was singing this, and I was like, what?
Especially with the accent.
And then I understood,
so let’s see if tonight they go
‘here we f***ing go.’
That’s a good sign when they do this.
What David Guetta symbolises is like,
To people that might not know house culture, or dance music culture,
David Guetta translates it to those other people.
What he’s done is bring awareness
to dance music in a big way.
I’m not really sure exactly
what motivates David,
but I would say his passion
for the music,
his love of the music and the power that music has to transform your life,
and your energy, and your spirit.
I mean you can put a song on a radio,
and you come to a club and you may be down,
and you get immersed in this music,
in the beat, and your life is changed.
And this beat that I just finished today,
you’re the first people on the planet to hear it.
And I promise you something.
When I’m going to put out this record,
the name of the record
Dance music in America,
is kind of came with the rave sound in the early nineties.
But that kind of came in
with a witch hunt,
so it got squashed.
So it never really took off, electronic music.
And then what happened was
all the guys that were making electronic music,
like house music from Chicago, house music from New York,
techno from Detroit,
everybody kind of picked up and went to where we were appreciated.
It was England where it really first took grip,
and you had that kind of whole idea of
rave culture, club culture, and people living for the weekend,
and that whole scenario,
and tribes, and clubs, and following the DJ. That really kicked off in England.
That was fun.
And I love that new beat, it’s cool, huh?
The last beat I played, like the new beat?
I have to call it Glasgow now.
I said it.
Now it’s got to be called Glasgow.
In the early days
it was very, very different to how it is now,
in some respects. In many respects it’s exactly the same.
It still is going from A to B,
sleeping in a hotel,
traveling to somewhere else the next day.
But what was different then
is we did gigs for no money.
It was about the quality of the show.
Who did David want to alight himself with?
Which DJs did he want to perform
But at this time he was bottom of the bill.
We have got David Guetta coming in the studio
Can you please
call Akon and see if he could do those vocals?
sounds just crazy. Everything sounds the same.
It’s just unbelievable.
Please welcome to the show multi-Grammy award winning,
world’s best DJ, world’s best producer, David Guetta!
How are you finding time to be here? Cos you’re like the busiest man in the world!
Yeah, but I’m happy to be here.
- You’ve got a smile on your face, - Of course!
I’ve looked at the iTunes charts, it’s put me in such a good mood.
Number one on Sunday?
Number one everywhere in the world.
Almost, there’s a few country where I’m only number two.
All my life I wanted
this music to be as respected as hip-hop,
and rock and pop.
But it wasn’t.
We were like, the remixes, you know? It was like, not even the music itself.
For so many years, we’ve been a *** child of the business.
And finally now everybody wants a dance record.
It’s not only on the internet, you can hear it everywhere,
and get commercials and ads,
and it’s unbelievable how it’s kind of crossed from being one thing into this,
big pop monster.
Tonight, I’m playing the Brixton Academy.
It’s a big deal.
It makes me very nervous, it makes my heart beat.
Which doesn’t happen so much time, with experience you get confident.
But every time there is something really new
then I feel like I’m 17 again
and it’s my first gig in a club.
And that’s how I feel tonight.
I discovered house
because I was working in a gay club.
Not that I was gay, but the only job I found
was in that club, and I so wanted to be a DJ,
I was obsessed.
And it was like, it was like a drug.
I was working in a gay club, so I started to study
what was going on in the gay clubs in the US
and in the UK.
It was like, 87,
I heard what was going on in Chicago,
in the black gay clubs,
and in New York.
I discovered, followed Jackmaster Funk, these kind of records,
and they totally blew my mind,
I spoke to the owner of the club,
I told him,
"this music is crazy, this is going to change the world."
It’s acid house.
Best f***ing –
World class DJ. World class beats.
I need to understand if Chris Willis
is supposed to play during my set,
or if he has his own set and he wants me to stay on stage?
There he is.
Do you know what’s happening?
I think I’m playing during your set.
In 2001, I met
a guy called Chris Willis
and it changed my life. He was a gospel singer.
He had nothing to do with dance music,
he knew nothing about this world.
And I was explaining to him
what house music was about,
And he was like, ‘yeah, but you know, I’m a gospel singer,
I might go to hell for this!
‘man, just see this as a church.
You’re just preaching to different kind of people.’
The record for me that changed things
was probably Love Don’t Let Me Go.
This was very much an eighties-esque kind of inspiration,
and actually a hybrid version was created later
that featured a group called The Egg.
And that was a breakthrough in the UK market
and that really pushed things open.
UK was the reference, you know?
When it comes to this kind of music.
So for me to have a successful record there,
that was definitely the beginning.
What many people don’t know
is that David is not just some fly by night DJ
that just arrived on the scene out of nowhere.
Not at all.
David and Cathy had both been dedicated to the scene
for many, many years.
David and I,
our passion is people,
David one day ask me,
‘Cathy, you need to start our own club now.
You need to find a location
to do some parties,
and I was afraid.
And he take my hand and he say ‘we try to do,
and we see after, you know?’
But it was hard work.
And he was really running a couple of amazing parties in Paris
that everyone wanted to play,
and he was also very ahead
in inviting guest DJs and stuff like that,
which was really new to everyone at the time. at the time.
People like DJ Pierre
and Little Louie Vega,
David Morales, Frankie Knuckles,
all those guys.
It was like a gift
to my clientele,
so they understand what this music was about.
And it was a gift to myself,
because for me it was an opportunity to understand how they were doing it.
I didn’t even know what making music was
until I heard house music.
And that sort of, totally, took me to, like, a different level.
Just love the feeling
of just forgetting everything, being on the dancefloor
with hands up in the air.
The feeling of being able to take on the whole world.
This record is really special for me.
It was the first single of my previous album, One Love.
I was playing in a club
and I was playing an instrumental of When Love Takes Over,
she came to ask me,
‘what is this record, it’s beautiful?’
I said it was mine,
and she proposed me to write and sing on it.
I was so nervous that you were not going to like the new version.
It sounds amazing!
When me and David met
I felt like we were in the same place creatively.
We just needed something different,
a spark of something new and refreshing.
To be able to hear that combination of soul
it was just incredible,
and I told him, ‘this is an emotional record right here.’
Almost like you’re at a party, but yet you’re crying at the same time.
We kind of mixed those worlds together and we got something special.
The first time
I heard Kelly sing like that,
and express herself as an artist like that, it was something new for her,
as well as the beginning of something incredible,
for the house movement.
The Grammy goes to...
for When Love Takes Over.
I’m David Guetta, b****!
Oh my God,
I’ve got to calm down for one second, I’m sorry!
the DJ culture
and the dance culture
is growing in America.
I love you all, this is a happy day, thank you!
I would spend days in record shops,
just looking at the records. And I couldn’t afford to buy them.
I would go to places
to touch The technics
at the time, the Technics it was like a turntable that was really trendy.
And it was my dream to have one, but I could not afford it,
so I would just touch it.
I would stay like, an hour, staying at the mixer or the turntable.
It’s different from anything else,
when I play in Paris.
It makes me very nervous,
because I know my friends are there, my people.
I can’t even explain it,
it’s – like today you would think you’re nervous
because it’s 80,000 people,
but it’s not even about that.
Even when I play in a club in Paris I’m nervous.
I don’t know what it is. It’s a little bit stupid, but
that’s the way it is.
I was like a really famous DJ in my city, in Paris.
But famous meant
the owners all wanted me to play in their clubs.
People would go out in a club
because they say, ‘the music from that club is really good.’
But no one knew who was playing the music,
no one cared.
Just to be able to play music and get paid for it was a miracle.
His style of dance
was always electro over soulful, you know, vocals.
So we felt he would be the perfect person
that can lead this whole movement forward.
This was a direction he was already headed, so it only made sense for us to get together.
We’re making new music!
what is that? is that dance? Is that urban?
- It’s called move music. - Move music, that’s good!
And we came to create Sexy B****. And the world wasn’t the same!
Sexy B**** took things to a whole another level.
It showed that hip-hop could really be fused in
with electro dance and create something
just on a whole another level.
I started one of the first house nights
in that gay club.
And I made a night, at the time, that was called Unity.
And I was mixing house music with hip-hop.
Which was totally crazy,
because at the time,
hip-hop, gay clubs, it was really different.
So that’s how I discovered house music,
kind of by accident.
And then I never stopped playing it.
The evolution of music, house,
all of it together is a new expression.
The house music scene is not just,
you know, exploding, it’s taking over.
The pulsing beat of house music, dance music,
funky house, electro-house,
they all have that undertone.
the tempo of it as well, just makes just want to dance.
It’s so much energy,
so much hype and so much love.
people just completely forgetting about their everyday lives
and just getting lost in music.
I know that I’m terrible with the camera.
I am really not a good actor.
And as much as I feel good in the studio or on stage,
I feel very nervous when I have to shoot video.
Because I usually look like an ass.
This is David Guetta,
that’s my brand new single,
it’s called Where Them Girls At, featuring Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj.
Dance music has been the sound of the charts
for many years in the UK.
The part that is really important that I play,
was to make this happen in America.
Everything was sounding so much alike,
it was so, just, it was just redundant.
We went from
hardcore R&B over hip hop beats
to 808 clap,
then we went to autotune,
and then the dance wave.
You know what I mean? And David...
And David was the most instrumental part of the whole process.
If anything I have to be thankful for David, it’s to be able to bring
what we do to the mainstream
and open doors for everybody else.
He took the house DJ
and put them in the forefront.
I want to make music that everybody goes with it,
it kind of crosses over and bridges the whole hip-hop aesthetic
For Dave and me, that’s completely not,
we wouldn’t even dare to set that goal.
David did just help all other DJs as well,
because we wouldn’t have these festivals, these audience,
if it wasn’t for the mainstream crossover.
In the way that kind of what we did with big beat
was kind of mixing two cultures,
two kinds of music and making it sort of commercial.
David’s done that with the American R&B side.
He’s always got an ear for something that’s accessible and big.
And also one tow in the underground, but also, and very much, I mean crossover.
but you’ve done it David!
Still on set.
Let’s roll camera.
That was my whole point.
I wanted to create a bridge between Europe
a bridge between electronic culture and urban culture,
a bridge between white people and black people,
because at the time
you had the urban radio,
which means black music,
and the pop radios, which means white music.
And it was only separated.
My wife is the opposite of me.
I’m totally more of a –
it’s all in, inside of me,
I love to spend time with my laptop
and she loves aesthetics;
So she’s really helping me on.
She’s looking, and she’s helping me on what to wear today.
She was helping me on, you know
"be careful, you look like an idiot!
Close your mouth!"
That’s her world, really. She loves fashion,
she goes to
to those fashion shows,
and I stay home making my beats!
My ambition was
to be a resident DJ in a good club.
my ambition when I was a resident DJ in a good club was different,
and that’s the thing, is that I’m never really satisfied.
Which is good, because it makes me always work harder.
But it’s sometimes bad,
because it’s very difficult for me to enjoy the moment.
Can’t Forget It has a dope hat sound.
Can’t Forget It.
It’s influenced by techno and by pop music.
But it’s very much influenced by house music for sure.
Underground-y drum track,
sort of European pads, and a big American f*** off chorus.
Being able to just sit back and listen to all of the elements,
this plus this plus that makes a hit song.
I Gotta Feeling changed everything.
I Gotta Feeling changed my life.
I think it also changed Black Eyed Peas life.
And I think it changed
I asked a friend, "yo, you know
the dude that produced Love Is Gone?
You know the dude? I like that song."
He was like, "I’ll call him on the phone right now."
"My name is Will.I.Am from Black Eyed Peas, we’re working on a new record.
I want to collaborate with you."
He was like, "oh, my name is David Guetta,
you came to my DJ set at Club Pacha,
and I give you the microphone, do you remember me?"
I was like, "that was you son?"
He was like, "We collaborate already"
I was like, "why don’t you send me a beat?"
And the beat was I Gotta Feeling.
He’s like the first dance DJ that said,
you can bring dance music to pop.
And Will.I.Am is the first pop guy
that said we should bring pop to dance music.
Putting them together actually created the doorway for dance music into pop.
I went to Los Angeles
to finish the record with him.
I was shaking.
I was so afraid,
I was used to work in a home studio, or with my laptop.
And then all of a second I was there in a badass studio
with the Black Eyed Peas.
Everyone was coming to say hello in the studio,
like Puff Daddy, and Busta Rhymes,
and Chris Brown,
and that was all on the same day.
this is crazy, you know? This is America.
That’s what that song did for David Guetta and the Peas,
was that it was translation.
It allowed people from different walks of life
to have a commonality,
and that commonality was I appreciate and like this song.
It’s about the evolution.
This is not a matter of one style, one style.
Styles are meant to be crossed.
When great musicians and great producers get together,
something has to happen that’s incredible.
And that’s the bottom line.
I’m loving how different artists are working together
and making hit records, it just sets the bar even higher.
Sometimes I wake up, I don’t even know where I am.
It’s not going to change my day,
because I’m still going to make my beats
and I’m going to play in this concert place
or this festival,
and the people are having fun with me.
They want to party and go crazy,
for one night
from a difficult life.
What motivates David is his love
of music, his friends, his family.
What he’s been through.
The people that’s been there for him.
He hasn’t abandoned the people that helped him.
That’s just dope.
What makes a good DJ is to know what a crowd wants.
He plays that crowd like no one else.
In my mind I was still a normal DJ, but in their mind,
they were going to see a concert.
So that’s when I decided to work on the show.
It’s not a DJ in a corner in the dark playing somewhere,
it’s actually people staring at the DJ and watching the show to happen.
The type of experience that I give is
a lot about interaction a lot about interaction with the people.
Their parents used to go to see a rock concert,
they go to see a DJ.
Whereas at the time, we were just an employee of the club.
That musical culture comes from Chicago and New York,
When I was a kid,
if someone was saying, OK, this DJ works in New York,
he’s like one of the best DJs of New York,
that was a big deal for me.
He’s an old school DJ in that sense, he likes clubs.
Because he feeds off the people.
And he’s also very enthusiastic.
He puts his hands up in the air, talks them in the mic,
all this stuff.
Dave and me, we’ve never done any of that,
we’d be bad at that, people would be like, no, just keep playing!
In that moment that he’s DJ-ing,
he’s got his hands up, the two fingers in the air,
and then he just continues,
the music gets higher and louder,
and just like, "really? Am I flying now?"
You feel like that might happen in that moment.
Greatest DJ ever.
His music is international.
Most of the DJs now,
they start by being producers,
and because their music is successful they start to tour.
It was not like this before.
I started as a DJ,
and then because I was so passionate about the music,
I started to make
some special edits of records
that I loved but couldn’t fit in my DJ sets,
so I started to add beats on the top.
And then that was like a remix.
But that was only ten years ago.
And I’ve been a DJ
since I was fourteen,
so all those years I was practicing my mixing,
instead of practicing my music.
the one and only David Guetta!
Can you feel that crazy vibe?
The way he broke through, is a real lesson for people to learn,
which was that firstly nobody wanted to pay him any money.
He would call up clubs and offer to play for nothing.
He was chipping away and chipping away
everyone that had him, loved what he did and they’d pay him a little bit more money.
Just slowly but surely
kind of work his way up,
it’s all come through hard work and determination,
and the fact that he really does make the music.
I’m recording an artist for the first time in the studio,
and it’s Taio Cruz.
Thank you very much man.
Hopefully we’ll make a lot of hits together here.
I think so.
OK, to you I can say the truth.
I’m f***ing dead tired,
I’ve three gigs to go today,
interviews, I feel terrible,
that’s the real, the real truth.
I want to thank everybody for coming down to the party.
And we have Taio Cruz on the plane.
This is kind of a scoop.
My second single will be together
with Taio Cruz and Ludacris.
And we’re going to perform it live for the first time,
actually on this plane.
I think it’s working!
We went for the first time in Ibiza,
sixteen or seventeen years ago.
And some customers said,
"you need to go to Ibiza
because you love clubbing ,
it’d be exciting for you."
And one day with David
I say, "yeah, we need to try to go there."
And when we were in Ibiza,
we visit in one night,
Space, Privilege, Amnesia, Pacha.
It was like a kid in front of the Christmas tree.
It was fantastic!
Ibiza is really, really special for me
because I first went there on holidays.
It was a revelation.
I remember like, David Morales was playing
a remix of Jamiroquai.
All those parties, everything was about the music and the coolness,
and I love it !
House movement in England was always kind of back and forth with Ibiza.
Everyone kind of makes the pilgrimage, you meet old friends
and they all congregate on this one island for ten weeks
and have a big party.
if you’re an athlete
you want to be in the World Championships,
or if you’re a footballer you want to be in the World Cup.
Ibiza’s still like that, you proving yourself at a top level.
The connection with the crowd is really unique,
you can change your set every day.
If I start a certain way, but I can change totally the direction of the music.
And that’s unique.
I’m going to grab something to eat.
It was crazy! I loved it.
It’s been a long time
I haven’t done a free party.
They’re still the best.
We start with F*** Me I'm Famous in 2000,
but the brand wasn’t like today!
At the beginning we are just a small team
with David, and my brother, my best friend, and me.
Five or six people maximum.
And when was pregnant,
I was in the beach in Ibiza,
and I gave to the flyer to the people !
And David too,
he work all the time,
And it’s, for sure it’s our secret.
Cathy is ...
the strongest person, have known them for a long time.
I remember we came back together on the plane from Ibiza.
We landed in Paris, at about eleven at night,
she said, "I’m going to work.
I’ve got a business, I’ve got to go."
And she went straight from the airport.
And I looked at her thinking,
she’s made out of brick, she’s so strong.
You know my favorite placeI is ...
Between David and me, it’s the perfect combination.
David, you know, thinks about only music
and me, I’m more in
and the promotion staff.
And it’s the best combination !
Have a great show tonight, OK?
We met together,
we were not even adults.
it’s almost like we raised each other.
an apartment that was smaller than this hotel room.
We had no money.
We were fighting the world.
I really feel like this with her,
it’s like if you went to war with someone.
I guess it gives you a relation that is really unique.
We knew the bad days, happy days,
we share everything.
I’m driving down the street and I see a picture of him
and his wife on the billboard.
That’s just hot.
That’s just dope.
Did David Guetta’s wife Cathy play a role in it? Hell yeah she did.
Right? And that is hot.
It start since ten years,
with a small party at Space,
and ten years after,
F*** Me Famous ... it’s huge, it’s sold out.
It’s fantastic !
My wife told me that everybody can see that I just woke up.
Cos I went for a 45 minutes nap
and my hair is like this!
We’ve played together at some quite interesting gigs,
my favourite was when he played on Brighton Beach.
And poor love, he played in the rain on New Year’s Day,
imagine how cold it was!
He came off a little bit earlier, and I was coming onto the decks,
I said, ‘why did you finish early?’
He said, ‘I run out of equipment.’
Basically the rain had just electrocuted everything.
He played the last half hour on one deck,
and just talking to the crowd.
This is the most beautiful day
of the year.
Because it’s the opening of Ibiza season.
All the party people from everywhere in the world
are reaching out together for one night!
F*** Me I’m Famous !
It is something about being in that moment,
at a F*** Me I’m Famous party,
where he’s just DJ-ing,
at a place where maybe he’s with some friends
and he gets on, and he creates a world.
They should invent a term for it.
Like ‘Gethouse’ or something like that.
It does make a lot of people very happy.
Yeah, it made me smile tonight!
I remember my teacher called my parents,
because she was really worried for me.
My math teacher.
And I said, ‘but it’s OK, I want to be a DJ.
I don’t need to be good in math!’
She was like, ‘what is it?’
And I was explaining her,
"Well you see, I use B-sides, and a capella,
and mix records together,
so I create loops."
She was like, ‘but this is not a job,
Do you think you can make a living out of this?’
Everybody who comes here, because they love the music.
It’s the Mecca of house music.
it’s DJ paradise.
Can you tell us a little when the album coming?
I felt that sometimes, I need to go back to my roots.
So this album,
and it’s the first time that I speak about it,
is actually going to be a double album.
To make a full electronic album, it takes
a lot of energy,
it’s not something that I have to do
from a business point of view,
I needed to do on a personal point of view, on an artistic point of view.
It’s a balance you need to fit you.
You always have people to say, ‘oh you’re commercial,
or ‘you’re not underground,’
I feel David does an amazing job of trying to balance both.
The reason why he’s a pop star
is because he’s also an incredible DJ.
It’s kind, that’s the reason.
The reason why he surpassed
all of his peers, is because he’s just the best.
I never wanted to choose.
That’s the thing.
I love music,
I think good music can be
underground, or mainstream.
being super hyped, for me,
is really not a criteria of quality.
The biggest change, in the house scene,
it’s the collaborations.
it’s hip-hop featuring house.
House music is the new hip-hop.
They want to work with us.
people call me up nowadays,
and are like, ‘can you fit something in the schedule?’
To us, it’s a dream come true.
When you are a little French man,
and all of a sudden you are being almost copied
by some of the biggest pop star
like, I don’t know, Rihanna,
and collaborating with Madonna,
it’s, wow! It’s something.
Everybody wants to be a part of this new thing that’s coming up.
Little Bad Girl is a good example
of my work process.
I try something that is not very normal,
which is like the rapper to do the second verse,
and have the second verse to be inside the bridge.
It’s really not a normal structure.
And it’s kind of a risk, but I like it like that.
The passion is the biggest drive.
If you don’t have the passion you won’t even be motivated to work hard.
It doesn’t even feel like work, we do this in our sleep !
we was doing it way before the big dollars.
We would have been doing this broke in our basement,
that’s the advantages... we love it more than anything.
When you love something, you do it as much as you possibly can.
We were speaking together with Jean-Gui,
remembering when we were teenagers.
And seeing, like, big rock bands
coming with a helicopter for the concert,
and saying, ‘wow! This is so crazy!’
They’re using a helicopter to get on stage.
And now it’s me. It is really crazy!
He’ll be travelling from country to country,
continent to continent,
and still have the same work ethic,
you know what I mean?
And still be alive.
He needs to be sleeping is what I’m trying to tell you.
That style of music,
that energy, that impact in the club,
that international sound, that world sound.
But it’s just that feelgood music,
that’s symbolised by people just putting their fists in the air and just pumping.
My name is David Guetta and I’ve come to party with you !
If you’re ready ...
let me see your hands!
David is really good at kind of coordinating this,
mass circus, if you will,
of musical styles and artistry,
People come along to the party and it’s irresistible.
When you hear his music no matter what you’re going through,
I feel like I’m in the middle of a party!
It was about time, he's the greatest at what he does,
and I’m the greatest at why I do.
And we wanted to take a chance.
Put my voice to that electronic sound and see.
When I get this song it’s going to be a number one song around the whole world.’
I’m like, ‘the whole world?’ He’s like, ‘the whole world.’
I don’t ever really talk to producers like that.
Just like this song’s going to be a hit single,
but no one ever says number one in the world.
Everywhere I was in top five.
So he told the truth.
Does it ever feel weird to you, just coming off playing to 80,000 people,
and now you’re here on your own?
Do you ever get over that?
I know what you’re talking about.
after being with a lot of people.
But that’s not now, that’s when I’m back in my room.
Yeah, sometimes, it’s a little difficult!
Say David shake the house!
Back in the day I fell in love with house music through hip-hop.
I believe it’s back to merging with hip-hop nowadays.
So we’re in a full circle now.
Every time it sort of evolves and comes back,
you get a little bit more on top of it, you get a little bit more intricacy,
And that’s what makes it exciting.
Now we’re really trying to make the next level of hip-hop.
So a combination of dubstep, electro
and the old scrunk beats, and old hip-hop.
and combine it all to make a completely new form of hip-hop.
Flavor Flav lives in Vegas,
and I used to be a hip-hop DJ.
And I was playing Public Enemy,
so for me to see him was really crazy !
This is how most of my records are happening, you know?
Like Akon, I met him at a festival,
And we made Sexy B**** on the same night.
So Kelly Rowland,
she was in my club when I was playing the instrumental of When Love Takes Over
Today I just met Flavor Flav maybe something’s going to happen.
I love it when t happens like this.
Oh my God it’s David Guetta !
You scared me for real !
Two years ago when we met
I was this.
And now I just played the main stage of EDC
for like 30 or 40,000 people?
David Guetta is like, my brother.
t’s really basic like that.
It’s private, we speak each other almost every day.
Like glitter on your shoes was nothing compared to the party.
because his feets are so big
that they cannot make shoes like this for him.
I was a fan and now I have fans.
There’s no bull****.
Like when I discover,
a new DJ, and he’s like, really
making me trip,
I’m a fan.
Even if he’s only 20,
I feel the same that I was feeling
when I was listening to Masters at Work.
I was like, oh ****!
I still feel like this sometimes,
and I love it.
I don’t think I’m changed.
One time he stayed at my house,
in Holland. I don’t have like a super big house,
because I’m not a super big DJ yet,
so we slept in my bed, I have like a really big bed.
but it’s still like just a king size bed.
So we went to sleep, like, five in the morning.
and I woke up at eleven.
I looked next to me and I saw David sitting like this.
Oh good morning! How are you?
he even had a cup of coffee. I didn’t know, even know I had a coffee machine !
My drug is that connection with the people.
It’s very important to me.
Those crazy party people ...
I need them, they’re my fuel.
I think I’ve done a really ...
All the crazy **** we do tonight will be the best memories.
Since 20 years,
we are together, we work so hard.
Just a dream for David is to be a DJ,
in Paris or in France, maximum.
And for me just to just to work in great club.
Usher. Afrojack. David Guetta.
Our working together represents,
what he calls house and what I call rev.
When you hear soul
and house work together,
that’s what we create.
Yeah man! This is massive!
My life is like running all the time, but I’m not complaining.
I’m in love with that lifestyle,
because, you know,
I have so much to learn, and so much to achieve.
We can imagine, you know, our life now.
it was a miracle.
It was a miracle. Nobody ... Sorry…
It’s really crazy to see that what I’m doing today
is what I was doing when I started to be a DJ.
I think he’s
