David Guetta Drops 2-Hour Year End Mix on BBC Radio 1's 'Diplo and Friends'
It's hard to deny that David Guetta had one of his best years of his musical career in 2015, so it should come as no shock that on the last Saturday night before 2016, Guetta was chosen to play a 2-hour guest mix on Diplo's BBC Radio 1, weekly radio show, Diplo and Friends. If you're in need of some of 2015's best music, look no further because Guetta has you covered.
It's an honor to lock-in a spot on Diplo and Friends, as so many artists are clawing their way to get the nod to do so, but respectfully, in light of Guetta's fantastic 2015, Diplo gave the final Saturday night session to Guetta.
In a previous Music Times article, Guetta's 2015 was explained in great detail, and why Billboard gave the No.1 EDM/Dance artist to Guetta, whereas DJ Mag did not was broken down.
Whether or not Guetta was ranked No.1 or No. 100, this two-hour mix, filled with tracks from Tiesto, Autoérotique, Chuckie, Valentino Khan, Showtek, Diplo, Chris Lake, The Chemical Brothers and, of course, music from Guetta himself, Diplo gave this special mix to Guetta for a reason and the Frenchman did not disappoint.
There are certainly big EDM artists out there who have released their 2015 year-end mixes, but ones from the likes of Diplo, Hardwell and Guetta are just too good not to share.
With New Year's Eve just four days away, fans are already talking about what's to come for EDM in 2016. Before jumping into next year, this mix from Guetta, which captures the best of 2015, should be heard as it certainly points into the musical direction Guetta is headed to come the new year.
The tracklist below outlines Guetta's mix and certainly sheds some light on some tracks that were overlooked in 2015. In any case, enjoy the last Diplo and Friends of 2015, as Guetta takes us into the new year!
