‘The World Is Mine’ is perhaps the first Guetta single to be released that truly demonstrates his early musical influences. A big winner in the eyes of Pete Tong, it was the biggest track of Tong’s latest US tour and the Deep Dish mix found its way into the hands of Sander Kleinenberg who has had his crowds singing along to every word since the summer.
The Deep Dish mix has now been given the ‘Essential New Tune’ accolade and rightly so. The U.S. duo are obviously on a production roll as they lend the track a deep percussive undertow and a fantastic pulsing bass line, they then let the anthemic melodies do their damage.
Ali & Sharem loved David’s vibe so much on his mix of ‘Flashdance’ they have delivered an equally exceptional rework. On the flipside, Guetta’s Parisian fellows Blackstrobe turn in one of their best remixes of the year (their personal favourite). A stuttering electro groove, a fantastic warped bass, melodies that keep on building and a killer acid drop….. you can’t ask for much more.
Promo 2 maybe surpasses even this, featuring a storming F*** Me I’m Famous remix from Guetta and his production partner Garaud, which encapsulates the vibe of David’s untouchable F*** Me I’m Famous Ibiza Pacha Parties, devastating dancefloors across Europe. It’s doubled with an Antoine Claraman dub to which teases the track into broader house clubs.
This Summer’s F*** Me I’m Famous lock out events saw P-Diddy, Kate Moss, Damon Dash and Jade Jagger in the house – fan Simon Le Bon in the booth and 8000 cool clubbers ram the floor till dawn…and refuse to leave!
A fantastic single taken from an ambitious album project that also features guest spots from Stereo MCs, Miss Thing and foremost Gospel collaborator Chris Willis, who also featured on ‘Just A Little More Love’ and last Summer’s club smash ‘Stay’, on the LP too.
