David Guetta Biography

David Guetta is a disc jokey who was born on November 7, 1967 in Paris. He began mixing his first vinyls at the age of 13. Five years later, he showcased his talent behind the turntable in a local club called Broad. Along with fellow DJ Kien, he began mixing his own music and showcased it in Broad evenings, Acid-house. Considering Broad as too small to gain wider public attention, David and Kien then conducted similar events in other venues. They have regular events at the Rex Club, Central World (formerly known as Queen) and Wunderland Boy.

David was proven to have talent on mixing and sympathizing music when he was listed on the international ranking of the DJs by the British magazine DJ MAG in 2005.

Beside teaming up with Kelly, he also collaborates with Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Estelle and will.i.am.
