Up Close & Personal: David Guetta On “Let’s Love” Ft. Sia, Creating in The COVID-19 Era & More
GRAMMY-winning producer David Guetta is not content to rest on his success. In fact, he's taken the opportunity of being stuck at home during the current pandemic to experiment and explore new sounds.
In the latest episode of Up Close & Personal, the superstar chats with GRAMMY.com Editor-in-Chief Justin Dwayne Joseph about his new single “Let’s Love” featuring Sia, creating music in the COVID-19 era, and the soul music that inspires him.
Guetta talks about the amazing transformation "Let's Love" made from the slower ballad it was in the demo to the energetic dance record with an '80s vibe it became. He also goes deeper into the influence of soul music on house music and remembers back to his early days of discovering his love for funk and disco, tracing the way he developed his personal style from combining early electronic music with funk and boogie.
"That combination," he said, "became what I've done as a producer many years late, having a dark instrumental with a soulful vocal full of hope, and making feel-good music."
