David Guetta Debuts Doc 'Nothing But The Beat' on iTunes
David Guetta has released his documentary, Nothing But The Beat, as a podcast on iTunes.
The full-length film, a co-production of Guetta's record label What A Music and Coca-Cola's Burn Energy Drink, chronicles the DJ's life and career with appearances from dance-music heavyweights such as Fatboy Slim and Laurent Garnier to recording artists and Guetta collaborators will.i.am, Kelly Rowland, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Taio Cruz and Usher.
"What’s happened to dance music recently is unbelievable," Guetta said in a statement. "I've been a DJ for 20 years and 'Nothing But The Beat' tells a part of the story through my eyes. But not just mine; my peers, those DJs who inspired me and my collaborators too. It shows how far we have all come and I hope will inspire all those new DJs, producers and everyone to follow their passion. I wanted to give something back to those who have supported me and show people new to the scene and sound some of our history. I hope you enjoy — this FREE download on iTunes globally is for YOU.”
On Tuesday, Guetta, who mixes R&B and hip hop with house and electronic beats, also marked the iTunes debut of his hit album Nothing But The Beat. Since August, the record -- which features the hit song "Where Them Girls" (with Flo-Rida and Nicki Minaj) -- has sold 2.3 million copies. It was nominated for a Grammy this year for Best Dance Recording.
