After years of mixes and collaborations, from house and electro to hip-hop and R&B, David Guetta finally reaches No. 1 on the DJ Mag Top 100 poll chart. This is Guetta’s first time as No. 1 and he is reaping the rewards.
With his latest album, Nothing But The Beat, and his fast-rising song featuring Usher “Without You,” Guetta is certainly giving house music a new light as the No. 1 DJ. “I’m very happy of course, I was thinking it was going to be impossible for anybody to replace Armin Van Buuren as No.1…I don’t know how many years trance DJs have been No.1?” says Guetta. Furthermore, he says that trance DJs who have continuously ranked at the top, such as Tiesto, van Buuren, and Paul van Dyk, give a special twist to the EDM scene, but house music has yet to make its grand appearance–until now. “I have a lot of respect for what those guys have done. But I’m happy for myself, and also think that maybe it gives hope to a lot of DJs playing house and electro,” says Guetta.
So what can fans expect from the No. 1 DJ in the world? Nothing but the beat, according to the DJ, as well as a new-found and perhaps new-exposed sound of house. Stay tuned.
