Superstar DJ David Guetta has been brought back to Earth by the coronavirus pandemic and says his music has benefitted as a result.

Back in his native Paris to record a New Year’s Eve show last week, the composer of ear-worm dance hits said he has produced “tons of new music” while hunkering down during the pandemic.

The French DJ says he spent much of 2020 in Miami, the United States. By bringing the nightclubbing industry to a halt, the virus has been bad for his business of globe-trotting from party to party.

But Guetta says being stuck at home got creative juices flowing.

“I realised how my lifestyle is not healthy, the fact that I am constantly on a plane, being jet-lagged and all of this, you know? Just to be able to wake every day at the same time, in the same bed, and go make music after my breakfast, that was kind of crazy. I haven’t done this for 20 years,” Guetta said.

“I am one of the lucky ones. I have money on the side, I didn’t need to stress about how am I going to eat next week or next month, ” he said.

“But I have to say, as an artiste, it was incredibly creative.”

Like night owls everywhere, Guetta is hoping 2021 will be better, with a victory over the virus that would allow for the reopening of dance venues and “the craziest party ever.”

“I told my kids already, I’m like: ‘Listen, guys, enjoy while I am here because when they open, I’m gone.’

"I’m going to play every single day, ” he said. “People are going to party like they have never partied before.” – AP
