In AFAS Live in Amsterdam, 53-year-old Guetta, who also took the lead in 2011, expressed his gratitude on Wednesday. “It means so much. I’ve worked really hard this year. We’ve taken United at Home to new heights, were finally reunited on the dance floor and I’ve released more music than ever,” says Guetta.
“It’s been great to play new music live and the energy and reactions of the audience keep me going after all these years.”
Guetta is considered one of the founders of dance music. In 2002 he scored his first Top 40 hit with Love, Don’t Let Me Go. In the years that followed, he also produced a lot of music for others. At that time he worked with world stars such as Kelly Rowland and The Black Eyed Peas. In 2012, he returns to his roots and launched his own record label Jack Back Record which released only electronic music.
During the annual Top100 DJs Award show, organized by ALDA and DJ Mag, there were performances by Armin van Buuren, Afrojack and Don Diablo. Martin Garrix took to Instagram to say that he is happy with all the fans who voted – but “please, if you announce me as the second best DJ in the world, spell my name correctly,” he reports. The organization had written Garixx.
