Name
David Guetta

Occupation
French superstar DJ

So exactly how much of a ‘superstar DJ’ is this chap?
If we ignore the albums, the mix CDs, the remixes, the production work and the singles (we’ll get back to them later) Guetta is one of the biggest DJs in the world right now. Not many DJs are booked to headline the King Tut’s Tent at T in the Park (which he soon transformed into an oasis of hands in the air house heaven) but he’s also headlining the 4Music stage at V Festival; is headlining the main stage at Creamfields and the LED festival in London. And he’s taking a quick break to play Edinburgh, in the only venue with the capacity to hold his legion of fans at the Royal Highland Centre.

OK he’s huge, how come?
Debut album Just a Little More (2002) helped pave the way, especially the track ‘Just a Little More’, but it was his infamous Fuck Me I’m Famous mix CDs starting in 2003 that really marked him out as a future star. Mixing big house with a dash of techno and crunchy electro. There’s been five more entries in the Fuck Me … series and three more studio albums since, including last year’s One Love featuring the absolutely gargantuan single ‘When Love Takes Over’ with Kelly Rowland.

Kelly Rowland, impressive stuff, who else has he worked with?
It’s not just his own production work where he ropes in the stars, but he’s worked producing tracks for Rihanna, Britney Spears, Estelle, Kelis, Flo Rida and many more. Not forgetting his work with Black Eyed Peas giving them three of their biggest singles ‘Boom Boom Pow’, ‘I Gotta Feeling’ and ‘Rock That Body’.

Any more info on this Edinburgh date?
DJ Chuckie and Lottie will be providing support, there’s full stage production and a ‘giant laser wielding robot’. Awesome.
