Dr. Dre: David Guetta Inspired Me to DJ Again

Did you know that before Dr. Dre was rapping on MTV he was a DJ? Yup, he got his start as a DJ for the World Class Wrecking Crew back in the 80’s.

Three decades later, Dr. Dre is ready to go back to his roots and take on the turn tables again. And you’ll never believe who inspired the hard-core rapper---house DJ David Guetta!

"He's passionate about what he's doing," Dre said of Guetta. "I flew all the way to Ibiza, Spain, to check him out, and I saw the show that he put together, and I was blown away, so who better to represent our DJ headphone?"

"Who has helped DJs more in the world than David Guetta?" Interscope Chairman Jimmy Lovine chimed in during an interview with MTV.

He’s so impressed with Guetta’s work, he sees it as a form of art. "From the beginning, just the energy that he brought and all the effects that he had," Dre recalled. "He wasn't just DJing and spinning records; he put on a show, and I took that home with me. I fell in love with the show."

So does that mean he’s serious about returning to DJing? Sounds like it. "I've actually been talking about it a little bit; dusting my hands off and getting back in the DJ scene," he said. "We'll see what's up with that in the future."

Watching David Guetta perform live is a feeling you don’t forget. He has an incredible talent for engaging his fans and everyone is just so thrilled to be in his presence, the only way to describe it to say it’s a joyous, exhilarating experience.

And speaking of awesome things, David Guetta just released another teaser of his single “Without You” featuring Usher.

The video, which was shot in Lisbon, Portugal, has a theme of unity, with Guetta saying the concept is about “going back together and it’s like one big party and there’s no more different continents and there’s no more different colors.”

The teaser video features Usher at a beach party while David Guetta is DJing. Gorgeous people are dancing in the background (of course) while Usher sings. People are making love signs with their hands while dancing to the beats.

No release date has been confirmed for the actual video yet, but Guetta and Usher assure us that the full-length clip is “coming soon.”

But in the meanwhile, you can check out the teaser clip below…
