Whether you like him or not, David Guetta has seen a great amount of success in the dance music industry. Being active for many years, Guetta began spinning records at a time where House music started to solidify. There was no doubt that he jumped at the opportunity to come play a show at the birthplace of the genre that started it all.

On Friday, April 4th, Guetta played at Chicago\’s Aragon Ballroom. It was inevitable for him to pay tribute to House and its emergence from our city; the way he did it was on a sad note.

Unfortunately, for the entire dance music industry and beyond, we\’ve recently lost one of the godfathers of House.


Frankie Knuckles can be tied back to the absolute beginning of House music. If it weren\’t for him and his colleagues pushing the genre and art of disc jockeying, the success of electronic music would not have been as massive as it is today. After 59 beautiful years lived by this man, may one of the pioneers of House music now rest in peace.

I have gained much more respect for David Guetta after he paid a solid tribute to Frankie Knuckles in the place that started it all. He closed his set with an old-school track that surely created a heartwarming atmosphere.
