New single “Lovers On The Sun” is centered around Martin’s excellent vocal, and Guetta, alongside co-producers Avicii, Giorgio Tuinfort & Frederic Riesterer, exhibit just how far their esteemed production skills stretch across the precision-engineered, thoroughly immersive dance music. Shimmering guitar melodies, innovative beat programming and a series of expertly timed instrumental breakdowns give ‘Lovers On The Sun’ the genuine, feel-good energy that only the biggest and best dance records can command.
Also showcasing the collaborative side to high-end dance music, not to mention David’s willingness to work alongside some of his favorite contemporaries, “Lovers On The Sun” makes for a compelling record. Perfectly geared towards the summer, it’s a track that underlines Guetta’s ability to elevate electronic music beyond the normal realms of chart-driven possibility and one that already feels like a crossover hit single in waiting.
Having only just released the last of his club transmissions for the year in “Blast Off” featuring Australian producer Kaz James, as well as announcing residencies at both Pacha and Ushuaia in Ibiza, an extensive run of European festival dates and closing out the summer season at NYC’s annual dance music celebration Electric Zoo New York, 2014 is already shaping up to one of Guetta’s busiest year’s yet. Now, with “Lovers On The Sun” also firmly on the horizon, there is scope for 2014 to be one of the most successful yet too.
