In Brief:After hitting the #1 spot on Beatport for an unprecedented third time this year with ‘Bad’ (which also charted at #1 on the European Club charts AND was Spotify’s second most streamed track last week),David Guetta is back with Australia’s star DJ / Producer Kaz James. ‘Rock House’ smash ‘Blast Off’ was written in true rock-star style, at 30,000 feet during a flight between gigs whilst the pair were touring together on Guetta’s recent Asia run.
Blending Guetta’s huge electro house rhythms with classic guitar riffs, amidst Kaz’s melodies and euphoric crescendos…‘Blast Off’ feels tailor-made for the dance floor and looks sure to be at the front of the major players’ record boxes this summer. Premiered exclusively by Guetta during his Main Stage performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Galvanized by a rugged 8-bar vocal, that implores clubbers to “put them hands up higher,” the track builds with heavy guitar riffs, before exploding into life with a thumping lead bass line and a twisted strung-out synth interjects.
Delivering the sort of pressure that Guetta’s and James’ fans alike are guaranteed to love, expect ‘Blast Off’ to make serious waves on dance floors across the world.
David Guetta has also just kicked off his ‘F&ck Me I’m Famous’ residency at Pacha Ibiza on Thursday 29th May, ahead of taking in a bustling summer schedule. Joined by Daddy’s Groove & Showtek, it follows hot off the back of an epic tour schedule that saw Guetta play a sold-out Spring residency at XS in Las Vegas, as well as, sell out shows in: Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington DC and New Orleans. He also embarked on a short Canadian tour and even found the time to play at Mexico’s largest dance music festival, ‘Electric Planet’ in March. As the only Ibiza DJ to host two residences this summer, Guetta is also all set to launch ‘David Guetta & Friends’ at Ushuaia on Monday 30th June. To be hosted as a pool party, scheduled to stay alive long into the night, expect this to recreate a festival atmosphere in one of Ibiza’s most infamous clubbing spaces. Not content to stop there, Guetta is also confirmed to play headline festival slots in France, Germany, Estonia, Italy, Sweden, Iceland, Italy, Russia, Spain and Scotland before the season is out, in what’s shaping up to be another incredible summer for one of the world’s most iconic, globe-trotting DJs.
Kaz James has also announced he’s set to play alongside David at both Pacha and Ushuaia in Ibiza this summer. He has also confirmed he will have his own residency at ‘Paradise Club’ in Mykonos. Having recently signed an extended deal with onelove Recordings, James, who already boasts remix work for the likes of: Skrillex, Kaskade & The Gossip, as well as production credits for Macy Gray, Kelis and even The Neptunes, it’s clear that Kaz is all set for an equally exciting summer.
