David Guetta

People are still talking about David Guetta's last Miami gig, at Cameo during this past spring's Winter Music Conference. The mess at the door was nearly unparalleled, and the sardine-squished crowd thrashed to funky, dirty house beats until nearly dawn. The party, after all, was a special WMC edition of Guetta's legendary Ibiza gig — and how could anyone in Miami resist a night called Fuck Me, I'm Famous?

Cheeky names aside, Guetta is the jet set's DJ of choice for good reason: He specializes in feel-good sets so melodic and building that dancing becomes nearly mandatory. A Paris native, Guetta first discovered acid house and Chicago house as a teenager when it filtered to France in the late Eighties. In 1992, at one of his own club nights, Guetta met Chicago legend Robert Owens, who soon graced a track for the former with his unmistakable croon. The result was "Up and Away," which paved the way for the jacking, soulful groove that would forever stamp Guetta's originals.

In 2001 Guetta met gospel singer Chris Willis, and the rest was history. On Guetta hits like "Just a Little More Love" and, most recently, "After the Love Is Gone," Willis, with his robust, impassioned singing, was like a pied piper to the dance floor. Clubbers followed — en masse. Saturday night's set should draw such a sleek, up-for-it crowd that we guarantee, if you choose, you will get lucky — famous or not.
