Guetta: I jump around in the studio

David Guetta is just as lively in the studio as he is on stage

Superstar DJ David Guetta says he puts as much energy into recording as he does playing live - and is always "jumping around" in the studio.

The Paris-born producer is renowned for his lively performances at concerts and festivals, and admits he repeats his wild displays while laying down tracks.

Guetta - who plays London's LED Festival later this month - said: "I'm actually exactly the same in the studio as I am on stage. I'm always jumping around, getting excited.

"The artists I work with always laugh at me because I get so excited making tracks. It's always been about making people dance and then drawing emotion from the track then writing the song."

The dance guru - who has worked with stars such as Kelly Rowland and Kid Cudi - is a big draw at dance events and at last year's Creamfields event his set had to be suspended briefly due to overcrowding.

He said: "That was crazy, the moment they told me I couldn't play I was so frustrated - but after 30 minutess they said I could play I knew what was going to happen and after the first kick it was already going off , it was amazing."

:: The LED Festival (www.ledfestival.net) also features acts such as Goldfrapp, Soulwax, Leftfield and Friendly Fires - and takes place in Victoria Park, London, on August 27 and 28.

Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
