David Guetta electro house anthem ‘Delirious’ turns 11 years old

A true juggernaut of the electronic industry, French DJ and producer David Guetta is best known to dance music fans these days as the man behind hits such as ‘Titanium’ and ‘Like I Do’, but rewind to January 2008, and Guetta was releasing one of his earliest anthems, the electro-house stomper, ‘Delirious.’

With Tara McDonald on vocals, ‘Delirious’ kickstarted a movement for electro-house as a genre, with several of the sub-genre’s biggest hits later crossing over into mainstream radio and high-street nightclub dancefloors. With Guetta spinning his early career working vinyl on the terrace of Space Ibiza, the French legend has since spent the best part of two decades teaming up with hip-hop and R&B superstars such as Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj, Akon, Ne-Yo, and Kelly Rowland, as well as more recently, collaborating with the likes of Anne-Marie, and latin superstar J Balvin.
