It seems David Guetta is heating up before summer comes to an end. He commenced the weekend of August 17 with a fresh remix of “Oceans,” by Martin Garrix and Khalid. He takes a housier route with his rendition, though he still emulates the mellow tone of the original in doing so. We’re left with another surefire hit for open dancefloors — an expected result when one powerhouse hitmaker remixes another.
The release was followed by an even bigger bomb: Guetta’s latest collaborator for an original work is Black Coffee. They make an unlikely duo on paper, given the former’s success in the pop/crossover world, and the latter’s in deep and Afro house. Given Guetta’s past in deep house and his diverse list of collaborators to date, however, the pairing isn’t too surprising. The single, titled “Drive,” will be released on August 24. It seems the two are opting to wait until the release for fans to hear it, as well; only the album artwork has been unveiled thus far.
