will.i.am to DJ with David Guetta
David Guetta has just announced that will.i.am will join him for an exclusive back-to-back DJ show at Alexandra Palace on Saturday June 2nd. The friends and collaborators will spin together for the first time ever in the UK.
Both acts are huge talents and definitely hot right now. Neither David Guetta or will.i.am can do any wrong, making hit after hit. The former behind Jessie J‘s current hit ‘Laserlight’. The pair who are known to be great friends have performed together in the US before but never on British soil. So it is sure to go off and be a great show, as well as a guaranteed sell out.
The artists have collaborated for the past few years since Guetta produced “I Gotta Feeling” and will.i.am wrote and performed on David’s ‘One Love beats’ – fitting that one cut is One The Dancefloor and another I Wanna Go Crazy. will.i.am features on Guetta’s current platinum album – Nothing But The Beat – with “Nothing Really Matters”, also the title track of Guetta‘s movie.
The gig follows “The Voice” finale on the same night, where will.i.am and Guetta’s other collaborator – Jessie J – go head to head. It’s gonna be one helluva party..!
David says “Working with will changed my life; he’s such a great person and a true friend. He’s an alien! A genius! He was into the rave scene early and was the first to spot Love Is Gone. He called me and I was like “wow – you want ME to produce for The Black Eyed Peas?” Crazy.. That call led to me producing ‘I Gotta Feeling’. It’s so organic – we still make music just for fun. We share the same passions. When we play together its us sparking off each other – and for the first time ever, the UK can see it live. We’re both competitive on the decks, so expect a battle – of brothers!”
