The DJ Hero™ Party Continues with Downloadable Remixes from Superstar DJ and Producer David Guetta
Company: Activision
SANTA MONICA, CA – November 24, 2009 – Hailed as the “#1 Best Video Game Right Now” by Rolling Stone and “an impressive piece of work” by Entertainment Weekly, the DJ Hero™ set list is expanding again with the addition of three new downloadable tracks. Beginning today, living room legends and budding superstar DJ’s alike are invited to experience the euphoric rhythms of David Guetta and keep the party going with downloadable remixes of the ubiquitous “When Love Takes Over” featuring Kelly Rowland, the chart topping “Sexy Chick” featuring Akon and “On The Dancefloor” featuring will.i.am and apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas.

Performing since the 90’s, David Guetta is credited as a prominent figure in the rise of dance and house music and a major influence in the clubs of Paris. Since relentlessly touring internationally, performing in the hottest parties, coolest clubs and headlining major festivals, David is now firmly established as the world’s leading artist in his field. Referred to as the maestro of dance, his latest platinum album, the worldwide hit One Love, which is currently dominating the charts and airwaves around the world with its blend of electronic music and the greatest urban vocalists, is the source for the three downloadable remixes now available in DJ Hero.

“As European ambassador for DJ Hero, I’m really excited about the prospect of sharing my music and mixes with a new audience through this dynamic medium” commented David Guetta. “I think it is fantastic that a game like this can make the DJ’ing experience accessible to a whole new generation of wannabe DJs.”

Also joining the mix for Wii™ are two additional party rockin’ grooves: 50 Cent featuring Mary J. Blige “All Of Me” mixed with Queen’s “Radio Ga Ga” and “DARE” by Gorillaz vs. Public Enemy’s “Can’t Truss It.”
