Last year, global superstar DJ and producer David Guetta officially announced his Jack Back alias alongside the release of his album ‘7’.
Before David Guetta was a household name, he spent his days in the underground scene playing in clubs. Jack Back sees Guetta‘s return to the deeper side of his dance roots- where it all started.
Beatport has captured the story behind Jack Back in a short documentary which premiered exclusively on Thursday, March 28 during Winter Music Conference in Miami, and was followed by a live Q&A with David Guetta.
Before he took world fame in the pop industry, Guetta spent his early years of DJ’ing mainly in clubs playing house music.
Explaining the alias, he said: ”Since the album represents a full cycle to me I wanted to go back to the beginning of the cycle, where I’m coming from. These are actually the type of records that come more naturally to me than pop, because I’ve done this all my life.
I wanted to create something very personal. I get excited by music that is part of a culture and that’s why I wanted to make this. There is no commercial approach to it, I’m doing it for the love of music.”
