David Guetta | Biography and Music

Chapter 1 | Born to be DJ

David Guetta little

Pierre David Guetta was born in Paris on November 7, 1967. Son of Pierre Guetta, a sociologist turned restaurateur and Monique, a psychologist, he soon found himself with separated parents.

  • David has 2 siblings, the well-known French journalist named Bernard Guetta and the French-Italian actress Nathalie Guetta. He also has two half-siblings from his mother’s first marriage, Dominique and Joëlle Vidal.

David’s vocation was precocious, at the age of 13 he bought a mixing board 🎛️ and transformed his room into a disc jockey booth, to the despair of his father, with whom he lived.

David was not very good at math. His teacher told him he needed to study the multiplication tables, to which Guetta replied that the only table he was interested in was the mixing table.

At 14, he started organizing school dance parties with his classmates, at which he of course played. At the age of 15, David Guetta became a DJ and music event manager at the Broad Club in Paris 🗼

As he got older, the more professional he became, working as a disc jockey in bigger clubs, mostly gay clubs where he played 8 hours 6 days a week.

  • He mixed the electronic music he liked with all kinds of styles like new wave, reggae, etc.
  • At that time you didn’t see DJs in the clubs, they were anonymous characters that you didn’t even see inside their booths. David would change that.

Guetta said that his parents were the opposite of those of the rest of the kids, all parents want their children to be respectable businessmen; his parents, on the contrary, were only proud when he started his artistic career. And his parents were extreme leftists, so everything was against the system. At the age of eight he walked barefoot in the streets of Paris and when he started DJing, they hated him, because for them discotheques and all that life were terrible and false.

David started studying law at the university 👨‍🎓 although he was still sure that being a deejay was for him. A trip to London would change everything for him. During his stay in the British capital he discovered house music and with it a whole new world.

  • He invested all his savings in electronic music records, even stealing some when he ran out of money.
  • He reached an agreement with the owners of the nightclub that employed him, a gay club in Paris: he would give up his cache and in exchange, he would make and play acid house.

In 1987, he would release a first production of his own ‘Nation Rap‘, a hip-hop collaboration with French rapper Sidney Duteil.

At that time he became friends with Giuliana Rizzi, who organized parties in big clubs. With her he would organize the ‘Unity nights’ at the Rex-Club in Paris. These were sessions with up to 8 guest DJs, such as Didier Sinclair, from whom David learned a lot.

  • Already then, David Guetta began to mix electronic music with hip-hop. A formula that would later lead him to success.

Chapter 2 | From businessman to disc jockey

In 1988, at the age of 21, he started mixing house music at Radio Nova. He would do it for 2 years until 1990.

His first TV appearance took place in 1991 on France 3 channel in a comedy show called ‘La Classe’ playing Nation Rap with Sydney.

Together with his friend Kien, David started to organize a night party called ‘Princess of the World‘ in the old discotheque ‘Queen’, as well as other house music nights.

In early 1990 David Guetta and Kien took over the artistic direction of the new club ‘Folies Pigalle‘, a former cabaret formerly dedicated to prostitution. They turned it into the trendy dance floor, especially for alternative music and new sounds. Their house sessions became very famous.

David Guetta married in 1992 with Cathy Lobé 💒 whom he had met 2 years earlier in a club where she was a waitress.

  • In addition to his partner for many years Cathy also became the director of his career and the brain of the musical empire they would build.
  • But it didn’t stop there, David never gave much importance to aesthetics, his thing was the laptop and the beats, so Cathy was also his beautician, she chose his clothes and even advised him on the faces to put in the video clips.

Cathy and David lived with almost no money in a small apartment in Paris. The two shared a passion for electronic music and were convinced of what they were doing, which made them a very powerful and in tune couple.

Given the good results with their club, David and Kine were entrusted with the artistic direction of the popular club ‘Queen’ on the Champs Elysées. Shortly after, in 1994, together with David’s wife, Cathy Guetta, they transformed the great discotheque ‘Bataclan’ into the club of the moment. It didn’t stop there, as David and his wife would become directors of other clubs such as Sweet Bar, Pink Paradise, Palace…, and even expanded to Marrakech with the ‘Tanjia‘ restaurant.

In 1994 David Guetta released his second single, a collaboration with American house vocalist Robert Owens entitled ‘Up & Away‘. It was a moderate success in Parisian clubs.

  • In 1996, David would also start performing in Berlin.

In 2001, at the age of 34, Guetta founded Gum Productions.

That year his path would cross with that of American gospel singer Chris Willis. Upon hearing him David thought he would be perfect for his first single. He had a hard time convincing him because Chris knew nothing about electronic music, but he did and together they would release David Guetta’s first hit, ‘Just a Little More Love‘.

The following year, 2002, David would release his debut album of the same name, “Just a Little More Love” released by Virgin Records.

  • Interestingly enough, it would be the famous EDM duo Daft Punk who after meeting David in a club and listening to his album were blown away and introduced him to Virgin, who quickly signed him to a contract 📄
  • Guetta’s first album contained great tracks like People Come People Go and Give Me Something, but the track that really turned things around for David was Love Don’t Let Me Go, featuring Chris Willis. Eighties-inspired, it had a cover version by the group The Egg that blew up in the UK market.

‘Just a Little More Love’ sold over 300,000 copies despite the disinterest that the first album provoked among electronic music lovers for considering it too fusion.

David, tired of running so many clubs and dealing with problems with toilets, staff, police summons for customer fights and much more, decided to sell the shares of all the clubs he was a shareholder of to focus on his career as a record producer.

Chapter 3 | F*** Me I’m Famous

David Guetta’s name began to sound strongly in the international circuits. The success of his first album was followed by ‘Fuck Me I’m Famous‘ in 2003, a compilation of his remixes played in Ibiza that summer ☀️

In the compilation ‘Just For One Day (Heroes)‘, a version of David Bowie’s Heroes, stands out.

  • Since that year, and under the same title (F*** Me I’m Famous), Guetta would publish an annual compilation with the best of his sessions in Ibiza. To this day they are a classic of electronic music.

The first time David and his wife went to Ibiza was like a dream for them, everything was full of electronic music clubs, it was paradise!

  • David became a regular on the island, being invited to play for the first time in 1995 at Space in front of 200 people.
  • Soon after Guetta and his wife Cathy would start organizing parties and promoting them themselves on the beaches of Ibiza by handing out flyers.

David Guetta’s nerves

David has always been more nervous about playing in Paris than anywhere else, whether it’s for stadiums with 80,000 people or small clubs, the responsibility of playing in his home country has always made him nervous.

David says he likes to have nerves because it means you care about what you do.

After promoting the album all over the world, in 2008 he and his wife Cathy organized a big event for 40,000 people at the Stade de France, under the name “UNIGHTED”, where Tiësto, Carl Cox, Joachim Garraud and Martin Solveig also performed. What a line-up!

  • In 2009, he ranked third in DJ Magazine’s “Top 100 DJs” poll, and was voted “Best House DJ” by DJ Awards in 2008.

Since 2009, Guetta has had his own radio show on the internet radio station RauteMusik on Saturday nights. Subsequently, the show moved to Radio 538, where it is broadcast every Friday night after Tiësto’s Club Life.

David had attracted the world’s attention to electronic music like no other DJ had done before. With so much success came a lot of work, so Guetta spent his life traveling back and forth playing all over the world.

In 2010, Guetta co-wrote and produced Kelly Rowland’s “Commander” from her third album ‘Here I Am‘. He also produced the singles “Acapella” and “Scream” for Kelis, and the single “Club Can’t Handle Me” by American rapper Flo Rida.

  • David would go on to produce Rihanna’s album, Unapologetic, performing as her opening act on the European leg of her tour.

In 2012, Guetta, who had already been a DJ for 20 years realized that he missed the creative freedom of his early years, the parties where he would play improvised sounds for hours in Ibiza, something that the pressure of releasing one commercial hit after another had robbed him of, so he decided to create a new record label called Jack Back Records, with the intention of returning to his origins, focusing on what makes him happiest, electronic releases.

  • The first single produced by this new label was in collaboration with Nicky Romero, ‘Metropolis‘.

In 2013, David would release the single ‘Ain’t a Party‘ featuring Glowinthedark and Harrison. Shortly after, he would release ‘One Voice‘ featuring Mikky Ekko in support of the UN.

David Guetta is known as the Grandfather of EDM (Electronic Dance Music)

Avicii was a good friend of David Guetta. When he committed suicide in 2018 David was petrified. That event made him rethink his life completely to try to escape from that which had killed Avicii, depression.

Guetta has always been a happy person, but he admitted that life from hotel to hotel brings a lot of loneliness and that you have to know how to say no to promoters who urge you to play a thousand times everywhere because physical and mental health comes first.

Therefore, since that year he changed his diet, following a routine whereby he goes to the gym every day after breakfast 🏋️‍♂️

David followed up in 2018 by releasing ‘Mad Love‘, alongside Sean Paul and Becky G; and ‘Like I do‘ with Martin Garrix and Dutch DJ Brooks.

David has always said that music has to have dynamics, you can’t have people up all the time, it has to create tension until the moment when the high comes and the audience goes crazy.

David, who is not only a composer but also a producer, uses a program called Logic Pro for production, in fact there are videos of him on YouTube explaining how he does it.

David says that his favorite place to compose is in the air 🛩️, in fact, many of his hits came out of airplanes, although nowadays he enjoys producing more in his mansion in Ibiza where he spends most of the year.

  • It is called Villa Titanium, one of the 11 most expensive homes in the world with a value of 30 million.

There he spends all summer playing every Friday at the prestigious ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’ party at Ushuaïa, and every Monday, with ‘Future Rave‘, the electronic music session he offers with Morten at the exclusive nightclub Hï.

The rest of the year he moves between his homes in Paris and London where he also has a mini-studio, something simple, a good screen and his laptop. David doesn’t need any more 😆

Although his DJ work is done at night, David Guetta doesn’t smoke, drink or do drugs 💊 he just enjoys the music. He says his only drug is the connection with people.
