Who is the biggest, baddest, superstar DJ? The answer is undoubtedly: David Guetta. Guetta is a Parisian house music producer and DJ who has been in the industry for nearly 30 years. Known as being the number one international hit-maker, Guetta is quickly climbing up the charts with the new re-release of his album, Nothing But The Beat 2.0. Guetta originally started off as a DJ in the 80s. It wasn't until he heard a track by Chicago house producer Farley Jack Master Funk that he knew it was his calling. He co-founded “Gum Productions” and released his first album, “Just a Little More Love,” in 2002. Later releasing Blaster (2004) and Pop Life (2007).

Guetta's first chart-topping dance track was "Love is Gone" in 2007. Since then, he has endlessly pushed out hit after hit; his massive club songs such as "When Love Takes Over" with Kelly Roland, "I Gotta Feeling" with the Black Eyed Peas, "Club Can't Handle Me" with Flo Rida, "Titanium" with Sia, "Where Them Girls At" with Nicki Minaj, "Sexy Chick" with Akon, "Memories" with Kid Cudi and more recently, “She Wolf” also with Sia. This laundry list of hot tracks has led him to become one of the most in-demand DJs in the world. Not only does his A-list pop star resume continue to grow, Guetta's fame also reigns at the top of the EDM list. In 2010, Guetta received five Grammy nominations and in 2011, DJ Mag listed him as the No. 1 DJ in the world. His YouTube channel has over 800 million hits and he holds the No. 1 spot as the most watched electronica clip on YouTube worldwide and of all time. David Guetta's specialty: he knows how to throw an unforgettable party. Last year, he played over 200 cities with up to 2 million people at a time. His Ibizan soiree, "F*ck Me I'm Famous" became the top clubbing destination and Guetta is now taking it around the world. David Guetta may be a global phenomenon and a multi-million dollar producer but he also admits that he treads a tightrope most DJs wouldn’t dare crossover: being respected in the underground EDM scene and still creating mega hits, "It is difficult, but my goal is that the super-cool DJs of the world play me, but I’m being played on the radio, too. That’s very hard." It is important to Guetta that his music is diverse enough to connect an audience as large as possible…with millions of people attending his shows every week and dominating nearly all of the hit radio stations it is safe to say: mission accomplished.
