What can we say? It has been a long time coming!
Here’s the thing: there has been times in the past (and also as of recent) when we’ve asked partygoers and DJs alike, “Who’s the one act that you’d really, really like to someday meet in person?” and the answers are always directed to just one name. David Guetta.
When it comes to electronic dance music (EDM), the slew of talents are aplenty. But none can come as close to sheer genius as David Guetta when it comes to pure star power and marketing guru. The French DJ, producer, and pop star took the rulebook, ripped it up, and wrote his own.
In his reign as a chart-topping, globetrotting international flamboyant producer, he has conquered the charts in five continents and played to thousands at thousands of live shows while visiting ever major party capital in the world.
And come 12th October 2012 (Friday) this year, it’s finally Kuala Lumpur’s turn to experience a slice of crazy “F*ck Me I’m Famous” life when Future Sound Asia presents the world’s #1 DJ, David Guetta. Just so you need a taste of what you’re getting, check out his full length tour movie, “Nothing But The Beat”:

Joining Guetta at what is surely one of the most hotly anticipated shows of the year is Alesso, the progressive-tinged Swedish house producer whose ice-cold remix of Guetta’s “Titanium” was one of the big tunes of 2011.
No stranger to big arenas himself, he’s been named as “one to watch” in 2012 by MTV among other tipsters, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him rocketing into the top echelons of the DJ polls at the end of this year.
Of course, our local EDM heroes Goldfish & Blink need little introduction to most Malaysians these days. The launch of their self-titled debut album in July this year has seen the pair realize a dream that has been almost two years in the making.
Never afraid to shock and awe and fully at home in big arenas after crowd-rocking sets at outdoor festivals throughout Malaysia, Goldfish & Blink are sure to ramp up the tempo and get the party kicking from the off:

Rounding off the bill is another of the Malaysian dance scene’s leading lights, DJ XU. With an inimitable sense of style and flair, XU’s sound ranges from crowd-pleasing anthems to heavy electro and hard-edged, dark-sided techno. It’s a line up that’s sure to please any dance music fan.
And for the thousands who have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of David Guetta for the last few years, it’s going to be a spectacle that was certainly worth the wait.
