So last night I had a meeting with my lovely teacher and friend Mike, and along with other things we talked also about the giantic global djs, meaning David Guetta, Dj Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia… I have always loved most David Guetta. For me he is the biggest dj in the whole planet, mostly because I feel that he is the closest to my style, something that he has also said. He explained it like he tries to create a bridge between the house music and the urban music. And the thing is that I have always felt that in his music, because when I am playing and I wanna change the mood from the straight classic beats to something a bit more “alive”, I always play David Guetta. I had this poster of his work in my room in Greece when I was a kid, because that’s when I got to know him first, through this song.
Then when I moved here , the first summer that it was a bit hard to attend venues, I used to play his music in my room and watch outside the window, pretending that it was a full 10,000 persons crowd and they were jumping up and down with me, playing his music. Crazy right? 😀
Djing sometimes could be really hard, specially when you are in your first steps, hard that you don’t really get paid, you don’t know if you are going to mix right with the equipement that is provided to you and mostly because you have to ask everytime yourself “Is this a gig that I wanna do?” Since you mostly don’t get paid in the beginning, you wonder if you are making the right thing agreeing to play to lame venues like weddings or Discos for 10 year old kids.
But of course this didn’t stop my favourite guy David Guetta and to show how inspiring he was to me and to so many people, I presented a video of him to my whole class last week when we had our “Inspiration bomb” session.
It is crazy how far someone can go, and for me it is about believing in yourself, in your dreams and in your own powers, but it is also about proving to people that they are fucking wrong about you, you can go so high, if you believe that sky is the limit, just like he did with his teacher haha! 🙂
And last, one of my favourite songs of him ever, that is impossible to listen without crying, mostly because he has a different approach in love, and I think that I could relate to this song, the “frozen – hard” part of it, because it reminds me a lot of Scandinavia and the way of living, and thinking here. ❤
