David Guetta b2b Ingrosso

Jack Back goes B2B with Sebastian Ingrosso during ADE 2018

Well, here’s something you don’t see every day. David Guetta recently shared that he played to around 50,000 people during Amsterdam Music Festival on Saturday, where he went back to back with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Though this is the norm for Guetta now, something extra special and different went on to happen that night. From 50,000 people, Guetta switched to his new deep and tech house alias Jack Back, to hold the first ever Jack Back & Friends event. To take things to a new level, Guetta had a few friends turning up, such as Tom Staar – who is playing in Manchester on Thursday – Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and Solardo. But his special guest was what really turned it up, as the lucky 300 strong crowd got the pleasure of seeing Sebastian Ingrosso going back to back with the Frenchman.

Held at MAD FOX, Amsterdam, as part of the Amsterdam Dance Event, Guetta’s first event as Jack Back was highly anticipated, and the night certainly didn’t disappoint. With Ingrosso’s appearance, it made for an incredible night, with the two playing a B2B set packed with bangers both old and new. Dropping the classics ‘How Soon Is Now‘, ‘Feel The Vibe‘ and ‘Greyhound‘, Seb injected plenty of energy. He was equally matched by Guetta, though, as the 50-year-old brought out bangers like ‘Pelican‘, ‘Inferno‘, and the infectious ‘Titanium‘ acapella. Bringing only the best, the duo ran the show and played a rare set together. An array of ID’s also featured, including one upcoming from Tom Staar, who Guetta named as one of his influences when designing his new rolling tech house sound: a sound that Staar has brought to the masses in his recent releases.

Though there is no footage from the set, you can check out the tracklist from the phenomenal B2B here.
