DAVID GUETTA BITES BACK AT DEADMAU5

In a new interview, David Guetta has defended himself following a recent Deadmau5 diss that branded the Frenchman a "button pusher" with simplistic DJ skills: “When I perform, everything you hear is me playing my own music. You’ll hear unreleased music; every record I play, I will edit and use parts of another record to make it unique. I’m not gonna play what you hear on the radio. I’m just using electronic sounds, soulful chords, rock codes and urban melodies on up-tempo beats. It’s like taking the best from all of the different worlds.”

He reinstated his love of house, revealing that “I fell in love with it. I was one of the first house music DJs in France, but I kept listening to urban music. It was a dream to find a way to make them work together.”

And of the future, Guetta stated that he's committed to pushing dance music forward: “Because I’m a DJ, I also have the responsibility of moving things forward. I’m already somewhere else... When hip hop first started becoming mainstream, it stayed there for 10–15 years. I think we [the dance music scene] have 10 more years at the top.”
