Have a good week end
David Guetta is the happiest man on Earth, or so it would appear after watching his new documentary, Nothing but the Beat. This feature-length film takes viewers into the ever-so-exciting life of the renowned DJ and producer, following him everywhere in his private jet to the largest stages around the world, all saturated with diehard fans. Aside from the awkward transitions between scenes, this is the most professional documentaries made about EDM thus far — it simply blows Take One out of the water. It also tells an exceptionally inspiring story, showing how a club DJ from Paris merged an ostracized genre (house) with pop, creating an ambiguous category of music that the world not only recognizes now, but is completely infatuated with. Read on to find out more.
Guetta explains how he dreamt of becoming a resident club DJ as a kid, but didn’t have the money to buy his own turntables. He would go to the record stores and just stare at the equipment for hours, hoping that someday he would be able to turn his dream into reality and become a DJ. When his math teacher would call home and tell his parents that he wasn’t doing very well, he would explain “but I don’t need to know math, I want to be a DJ!” All odds were against him, but not only did Guetta soon become a household name in his hometown of Paris, he went on to become one of the most skilled DJs in the entire world.
The film also reveals Guetta’s true charisma — bursting with love, happiness, and drive. It’s evident after watching his interactions with other artists, DJs, and even his wife, Cathy, that he is an all-around cheerful person with a good heart. He feeds off the energy of his fans and thrives when producing hits. Nobody had a bad thing to say about him and we were left in an infectiously good mood when the movie was over.
Unlike the EDC Experience screening, the Nothing but the Beat screening we attended in LA was very organized and well-planned, not to mention flashcrowd-free. Viewers were not only able to take photos on a green screen outside of the theater, but could view them on the provided iPads, and even print photos to take home. (They were later posted on his Facebook page.) These weren’t the only party-favors we got to take home, as the Egyptian Theater handed out free popcorn and soda to all viewers, along with stickers and glow-in-the-dark wristbands.
The best part of the night, however, was when the man-of-the-hour walked into the theater and did a Q&A with the audience. Guetta told us that he’s not completely finished with the film but was eager to show it while in Los Angeles. He also explained the reasoning behind his double-disc album — he wanted his fans to hear both sides of his talent. The more pop side features many well-known artists like Will.I.Am and Chris Brown, and his dirty electro roots get to shine on the second. It’s safe to say that Guetta will forever push the limits and blend genres of music to create new and exciting sounds. If you haven’t bought his new record yet, grab it below.
