“I’m tryin’ to find the words to describe David Guetta at GLOW without being disrespectfuuuuul.” Hysteria, insanity and utter madness just don’t do the evening justice. Aiming his hands at the crowd like guns, Guetta blasted them all night long with reckless bass. Oh yeah… he brought Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas along to help.
Tag teaming the turntables, David and Will unleashed the fury, ripping, stripping and shipping an endless supply of four decades worth of party music to the packed dance floor. Coalescing acappellas, drum loops and dirty house beats, they redefined the term ‘mashup.’ They crossed so many genres with house it was almost criminal. Highlights included Afrojack’s “Zeggie” (samples Lil’ Wayne – A Millie) and off the rocker mashes of Kings of Leon – Use Somebody, Pat Benatar – Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Beastie Boys – Girls, Calvin Harris – The Girls, Foreigner – Cold as Ice, MJ – Thriller, and the drum hits from Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison.” Every time the actual song was supposed to drop, BAM!!! dirty, filthy house.
For “I Gotta Feeling” Will removed his headphones, grabbed the mic and performed live before the beguiled Glow DC audience. He brought the house down (no pun intended). When the song was over Dave grabbed the mic and put Will on the hot seat, asking him to honestly answer which was better, The Black Eyed Peas’ performance at the Verizon Center earlier that evening or “the real party” at Fur Nightclub. Will’s response was something to the effect of, “I pledge allegiance to the party people of the world, and to the club, for which they stand, one beat, under the DJ, with liberty and justice for the club.” He then proceeded to let us know that he “got that fiya on the dancefloor.”
After another onslaught of past and present party favorites including “D.A.N.C.E.” by Justice, Technotronic’s “Pump up the Jam” and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” David told the story of how the two stars met at his renowned “F**k Me I’m Famous” Ibiza party. It segued to a very special moment for DC Clubbing. They premiered what David called, “the next ‘I Gotta Feeling’.” There is no online hype about any such track containing the lyrics Will spit or the beat David dropped. It’s that new. The only thing that can be said is that Afrojack is involved and it has Will belting “What the fuuuckkk!!?!?!?!” repeatedly during the bridge. Of course to make it that much more special, Will started rapping about DC during this exclusive premier.
After Will.I.Am’s guest appearance had ended, Mr. Guetta really started to hammer the crowd. They had been warmed up with familiar sounds and now it was time for him to show DC Nightlife (yet again) why he is revered not only in the mainstream but in the underground as well. Tracks like Larry Tee f/ Roxy Cottontail – Let’s Make Nasty (Afrojack Remix), a reckless acapella drop of Wildchild’s “Renegade Master,” Prezio and Marvin’s “The Riddle,” and Sidney Sampson’s “Riverside,” had the people going bonkers. Guetta was a technical deviant on the turntables; a public menace. His track selections seemed to scream, “Fuck that weak shit!!!” as he took no prisoners. If anyone could rip a club up like that, it was him. Because as the remix states, “I’m David Guetta bitch!!”
For an encore he spun the original mix of “Love Don’t Let Me Go.” But the crowd refused to leave, lusting for more, so more he gave them. After 2 encores, chants of “sex-y bitch, sex-y bitch, sex-y bitch” resounded through the club. The lights went off, the music came on and David spun the Koen Groenveld remix of “Sexy Bitch.” At that point he couldn’t help it anymore and got down wit his bad self right in the booth, shaking his ass with Cathy.
After all that, how could one even consider “tryin’ to find the words to describe David Guetta at Fur Nightclub without being disrespectfuuuuul?” It’s simple. And you heard it here first…
