Superstar DJ David Guetta is known for his global hits, high-profile collaborations and being the era's biggest 'love 'em or hate 'em' artists thrilling and horrifying masses in equal measure. With the release of new single Bang My Head he offered to make Q a Playlist, so knowing all about the music he plays while behind the decks, we challenged him to produce a list of songs he loves but wouldn't quite fit in one of his sets...
John Lennon – Imagine "I’ve been involved with UNICEF for a few years now and I was honoured to be involved in a new video version of John Lennon’s Imagine along with some amazing artists including will.i.am, Katy Perry and Idris Elba to name a few."
M.I.A. – Swords "Always pushing the boundaries, her vocals laid over heavy beats and an soundtrack influenced by a trip to India."
Disclosure – Holding On ft Gregory Porter "I could have picked a few tracks from Disclosure, I’ve been playing out an edit I did of Bang That, but this track stands out for me from their latest album."
Samm Henshaw – Autonomy (Slave) "I like keeping up to date with new artist and Samm Henshaw has smooth soul sounding vocals and is getting rave reviews about his live performances also, a raw talent to watch out for."
Marvin Gaye – Whats Going On "What an album, what an artist, the title track is one that I love with forward thinking vocals which melt over a beautifully produced soul track - perfection."
Jamie xx – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) ft Young Thug & Popcaan "Great use of the a-cappella song from The Persuasions giving it a dancehall vibe with the overlay of Young Thug and Popcaan’s vocals, that definitely give you, Good Times."
MNEK & Zara Larsson – Never Forget You "Picking up the pace a little here and I love all type of dance music, the energy of this track matched with the soulful vocals from MNEK and Zara gives this a perfect twist of where pop music is heading."
Snakehips – All My Friends ft Tinashe & Chase T "This is perfect for the afterparty… chilled laidback vibe, a perfect afterparty track, something you want to hear when you have been in the club all night."
MØ – Kamikaze "Danish singer teams up her sultry vocals with her own unique twist to electronic music."
Stevie Wonder – Sir Duke "The opening lyrics say it all… 'Music is a world within itself... with a language we all understand!'"
