At the age of 50, David Guetta is a permanent fixture in the dance music world; love him or not, there is no doubt that his influence has inspired a slew of new fans and artists to become a part of the dance music community. On the heels of announcing the release date and tracklist of his newest album, Guerra spoke to the Independent.

In discussing his newest remix for Bruno Mars and its premiere in Ibiza, he notes the changes he sees in that club scene:

“It’s changed a lot in terms of clubs. I think what’s interesting in the last couple of years is how underground parties became trendy. There were always a very big underground scene in Ibiza … but now it’s very interesting to see the VIP customers, the money-spenders, the models… they were always coming to my parties at Pacha. But now they’re also going to Solomun or to Marco Carola. There’s a trend there, and it’s very surprising.”

He goes on to note the issues with the popular EDM that drove the genre to mainstream headlines: “I’m going to be honest, in the two last years that same 128bpm EDM was starting to make me tired. Everybody was playing it,” he says. It’s interesting that he says only two years, but his point here is that he’s actually happy to see more underground genres get the spotlight in Ibiza nightclubs.

Do you think David’s a bit late with his criticism? Should he criticize at all considering he released a track with Justin Bieber and still plays 128BPM sets? Join the discussion on our Facebook and Twitter @GlobalDanceElec.
