David Guetta & Dubfire: how two of dance music's biggest stars have remained friends for decades

Friendship is stronger than genres...

You wouldn't think that EDM giant David Guetta and techno don Dubfire would be close friends, especially considering how far apart their music is sonically.

But in a recent interview for a forthcoming Dubfire documentary, the two stars sat down with Pacha Magazine and explained the origins of their lasting friendship, which began a decade ago when Deep Dish and David Guetta did a remix swap.

Deep Dish famously remixed Guetta 'The World Is Mine' whilst Guetta remixed Deep Dish's 'Flashdance' and from then on the two stars have remained close friends.

Guetta actually credits the Deep Dish remix as a really important part of his growth in the early days of his career.

"I was really huge in France but I was struggling at a international level," said Guetta. "It was the first time my record was playing everywhere because they were really hot at the time — so I'm really thankful for that."

During the candid interview, which you can see below, both artists were asked about their concerns for the future of Ibiza, with both agreeing that they are worried about how expensive the island is becoming.

"It's really hard for the workers to get board these days," said Dubfire.

And Guetta agreed, stating: "The only thing that scares me is the pricing policy.

"If it going to keep on getting more and more expensive there's going to be a moment where a certain type of kid can't come anymore — and that really scares me.

"I love a mix of people and that what makes Ibiza so sexy and magical."
