David Guetta may be seen as a mainstream pop artist, but the superstar DJ actually started as a pioneer of underground house music in France. We just got a link to an interesting trailer to the soon to be released documentary about his life and rise entitled, Nothing But The Beat. It just goes to show where things can go, and love him or hate him, Guetta has certainly opened some doors for the music we love. We are also glad to see David Morales give some insight.

The movie will be released alongside David Guetta’s forthcoming album, also titled Nothing But The Beat, at launch parties worldwide. Below are the dates – stay tuned for more details!
