EXCLUSIVE! The dance don also talks to us about working with the U.N...
French mega-DJ David Guetta is delighted to see so many faces from the world of ‘EDM’ topping the UK charts telling MTV News UK it’s “fantastic feeling.”
“I am very happy to see people from a similar world of music doing well,” he revealed. “Any time one of these guys goes to number one it’s a fantastic feeling. It feels like it is really the time for these guys to go on and be successful.
“All these guys are doing so well; Martin Garrix, Alesso, Avicii, Calvin Harris. They are all making these huge records. People are making music in their bedrooms and going on to be world stars. It’s great.”
The Play Hard hitmaker recently hooked up with the United Nations in support of ‘The World Needs More___’ campaign and released the music video for new track One Voice Ft. Mikky Ekko to raise funds in particular to ease the devastation and loss caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Guetta told us what it was like to be involved in such a movement and meeting UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon.
“It was an amazing experience,” he said. “I am just a party guy who makes music for people to have fun to. I am obviously very blessed and I feel very lucky to have this lifestyle as my job.
“Having the opportunity to meet these amazing people is truly inspiring, especially when I am making my new record. A huge amount of the UN’s work is humanitarian so that’s really fantastic, and it is amazing that I can help in however small a way.
“I met a woman who had been out in the Philippines helping people after the typhoon. Meeting people like that can only be inspiring."
