Born on the 7th of November 1967, multi award-winning French DJ David Guetta began his electro affair in the 80s and 90s, DJing at underground clubs in his home city of Paris. He soon took to the turntables at the biggest Parisian clubs, before co-founding label Gum Productions and releasing his debut album Just a Little More Love in 2001 featuring the original edit of the hit song Love Don’t Let Me Go.
The house DJ legend enjoyed success with his three follow-up albums - Guetta Blaster (2004), Pop Life (2007), and international breakthrough album One Love in 2009 featuring number one songs When Love Takes Over with Kelly Rowland and Sexy Bitch featuring Akon. His latest album released in 2010, One More Love, includes Who’s That Chick? featuring Rihanna.
And there’s a whole new sound in store for album six, due to be released summer 2011. All we can say is it’s inspired by some of the biggest names in rock...
