David Guetta geared up for a massive summer season at Pacha. Years ago the “F*** Me I’m famous” brand started as an ironic name for a party, based on his personal observations on celebrity culture. “The original idea was to have people who normally don’t mix,” says David about this party series. “Clubbing had become like ghettoes again, so when it comes to my own night I try to do something different. At my party the social barriers come down. It’s about being inclusive and giving everyone something exclusive at the same time”.
Though Guetta has long been a household name in his native France, it’s only in the past couple of years that the rest of the world caught up with him. “F*** Me I’m Famous” evolved because he wanted to grab people’s attention with a little provocation.
Part of the mystique is that A-listers join the pilgrimage to party with hard-core clubbers at the flagship event at Pacha, fired up by David’s skills as an irresistible club DJ. “My wife brings the glamorous people,” he admits, “and I bring the crazies.”
The occasional parties which took place in the last years proved so successful that this season FMIF is now weekly on Thursdays – and stronger than ever. What also makes FMIF parties stand-out is the lavish production and the outrageous performers. Simulated sex on the trapeze could sound sleazy, but done Parisian style, it’s definitely more art-house erotic than top-shelf trash.
David Guetta just released “FMIF International Vol 2” on Ministry of Sound. Highlights include exclusive tracks by himself and sizzling sounds from Benny Benassi, Eric Prydz, Underworld or Felix Da Housecat.
