David Guetta has officially revealed his new alias, Jack Back, with a twelve-track mixtape of all-new, house-leaning cuts.

The French globetrotter and past Top 100 DJs winner also released his new LP '7' — his seventh studio album to date — last month.

Now, having started the Jack Back rumour mill with the release of 'Overtone' and '(It Happens) Sometimes', the DJ and producer's new project — which also encompasses a new label — is a self-proclaimed return to his underground roots.

In conversation with Pete Tong, Guetta said the album "represents a full cycle to me and that’s why I wanted to go back to the beginning of the cycle. I originally started in underground house music, playing all the raves and underground clubs in Paris. I wanted to make music just for fun, with absolutely no commercial approach to it. I want to make every type of music that I like, I’m doing it for the love of music."

Last month
, Guetta also revealed his collaboration with Black Coffee.
