Fast-forward to the end of the decade, and Guetta boasts production credits such as the Black Eyed Peas' ubiquitous hit "I Gotta Feeling" and sits at the top of DJ Magazine's "Best DJ" list. His fourth studio album, One Love, was released this past August and has garnered the DJ/producer further global renown.

Join Guetta for a night of sexed-up house music when he swings by Mansion this Saturday.
