Biography
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. He is also resident DJ at The Cross in London, Barcelona 's Discoteca and the Lausanne club Mad.

Propelled by the rock guitars of the single Money, David's second album, GUETTA BLASTER, is even gutsier. David and Joachim Garraud (the first album's co-composer and co-producer) applied themselves to creating real songs modeled on electro-pop classics of the 80s by such masters as Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Dead Or Alive and New Order, to name the most prominent influences. All the tracks on this second album are original compositions. The gospel sounds of Chris Willis and the stylings of guest vocalists JD Davis (lead singer of Sinema), James Perry (alias Jimmy Polo, renowned singer/producer on the Chicago scene) and Britain's Stereo MCs give the tracks a unique luster, while the production skills of Guetta and Garraud lift the album to new – and always spectacular – heights.

From GUETTA BLASTER's opening salvos, Money and Stay, we get beats that are cranked up a notch beyond the hard-dance formula of Just A Little More Love. Without an ounce of hesitation, the album launches itself at the experimental roots of house music and cold-wave, displaying an unexpected stylistic versatility, then oscillates between powerful mixtures of hot & cold and black & white. The result is 100% addictive.

Used To Be The One, with vocals by Willis, owes a debt to both Yazoo's Don't Go and garage music. Similarly, the counterpoint of Time evokes Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams, blending the best of English pop and dance culture – something David has mastered like no one else. Open Your Eyes, a track tailor-made for the Stereo MCs, is built on a rubbery break beat and an acid sequence, with a rap that brings their classic Connected to mind. The abrasive AC/DC, clearly a future hit on the underground/rave circuit, is like the missing link between Jeff Mills and Ministry of Sound.

Two velvet-smooth cuts neatly crown the album: In Love With Myself, a track that could hold its own against Moroder & Oakey's Electric Dreams any day, is followed by Higher, on which Chris Willis pays homage to the style of phrasing and embellishment popularized by Stevie Wonder, an approach that has proliferated in both R&B and garage/house music à la New Jersey duo Blaze. GUETTA BLASTER drives its point home with the metronomic Movement Girl, featuring James Perry, and the killer Get Up, on which macho riffs, the hysterical falsetto of Chris Willis and screaming guitars swirl around a punchy beat.
On GUETTA BLASTER, David Guetta has not only successfully avoided the pitfalls of second albums – he has truly launched himself into a new dimension.
The song "Just A Little More Love" appeared in the film The Football Factory, was sung in the Gospel version at the 2006 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
On New Year's Day 2007 he appeared at Big Beach Boutique 3, a concert held on the beach of Brighton, UK, put together by and headlined by Fatboy Slim.
His forth album is "Pop Life" released in France on 23 April, 2007 with the leading single
"Love is gone".

24. August 2009. he released "One Love". He introduces this album with the hit singles "When Love Takes Over" feat. Kelly Rowland and "Sexy Bitch/Chick" feat. Akon. He wanted to make a new music stream named House Pop or Hip House. In this album he worked with well known vocalists, producers and DJs like Chris Willis, Estelle, Kid Cudi, Novel, Ne-Yo, Will I Am & Apl De Ap from The Black Eyed Peas, Lil' John, DJ Chuckie, Abel Ramos, Koen Groenveld, Afrojack, DJ Footloose, Joachim Garraud and others.

In 2010, David Guetta co-wrote and produced Kelly Rowland's "Commander" from her self-titled third studio album. It peaked at number one on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Songs chart in the United States, and reached top ten positions in Belgium and the United Kingdom. Guetta has also co-produced "Forever and a Day", which is Kelly's second UK single from her third album.[14][15] Guetta also produced the singles "Acapella" and "Scream" for American singer-songwriter Kelis's fifth studio album, Flesh Tone, released on 14 May 2010. "Acapella" was released as the lead single on 23 February 2010 and topped the dance charts in the United Kingdom and United States. On 28 June 2010 American rapper Flo Rida released the single "Club Can't Handle Me" featuring David Guetta. The song is included on the soundtrack album to the American 3D dance film Step Up 3D.

After conflicts over whether or not an album re-issue should go ahead, it was announced his new single, titled "Who's that Chick?" featuring Rihanna, will be released from One More Love (a re-release of One Love). The album was released the 29 November 2010. It featured artists Kelly Rowland, Akon, Kid Cudi, will.i.am and Rihanna.

When asked about his fifth album, Guetta announced it would be released in September 2011. The French DJ recently admitted that his new sound is inspired by rock bands such as Kings of Leon and Coldplay: "I might make dance music but that doesn't mean I'm not influenced by bands like Kings of Leon and Coldplay," he told the Daily Star, "Right now I'm planning coming back with a new sound for my next album due out in summer 2011." In January 2011, Guetta recorded teenage viral video star Keenan Cahill lip-syncing to a mix of his songs. On 25 March 2011, Guetta gave his first interview about his upcoming fifth album. The as-of-yet untitled set will feature previous collaborators Akon and will.i.am as well as several new ones. Amongst the songs featured on the album will be "Little Bad Girl" with Ludacris and Taio Cruz. Another song from the album, "Where Them Girls At" features Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj. Both records are different, one is distinctly more European sounding, while the other is more geared to the United States. Guetta said the label could not decide which record to release. Minaj was a last-minute addition to "Where Them Girls At". "Where Them Girls At" is the first single of the album and was released worldwide on 2 May 2011 after an unfinished version leaked online. "Little Bad Girl" will be released as the second single

@ song: David Guetta - Bad (with Showtek and Vassy)

Can you tell me which song has been sampled? The phrase "why does it feel so good, so good to be bad" comes from another track and I don't remember which one. I'm sure I have heard that one before Guetta & Showtek used it.

@ song: Flo Rida - Club Can't Handle Me (feat. David Guetta)

I don't agree with most of you.
The beginning of the video is a rip-off of I Gotta Feeling.
The song itself sounds like Junior Caldera's What U Get.
The title should be "Can't Handle Me", without "Club".
And what did David Guetta do in this one? Absolutely credited for nothing. I really don't recognize his style! I know what I'm saying!

@ song: David Guetta - Shot Me Down (feat. Skylar Grey)

It's not Skylar Grey but Nancy Sinatra singing. Skylar Grey should be taken out! Every time I hear this version, I hear the same singer as in Audio Bully's Shot Me Down.

What a terrific song and video. So Gothic in that the vicious monsters are the human hunters instead of the wolf herself. The world needs wolves.
