The Monster Symphony Lady Gaga – Aston

The Monster Symphony Lady Gaga – Aston is amazing! In 2011 Aston was invited by Perez Hilton to appear in his TV show All Access where the group met and played their famous cover of “Telephone” for Lady Gaga. After this meeting with the singing mega-star Aston went on to pay tribute to her by creating their most ambitious project, The Monster Symphony. The Monster Symphony is a 10 minute work created from just Lady Gaga songs. Together with film directors Nathan Hunt and Reece Farris, they married the music with an epic short film in which they also appeared.

Astonʼs first taste of international success came through YouTube where their cover of Lady Gagaʼs “Telephone” went viral thanks to the help of gossip blogger Perez Hilton who featured it on his infamous website. A string of other videos then went viral, Rihannaʼs “Rude Boy” & “Only Girl (In The World)”, Coldplayʼs “Viva La Vida” as well as Lady Gagaʼs “Born This Way” gaining the group a legion of fans from all over the world.

“Aston is one of the worldʼs leading emerging classical groups, turning popular music into symphonic masterpieces. After meeting at Australiaʼs premier music schools, The Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the group of friends Eliza (violin), Michael (violin), Hanna (cello), Ella (piano), Dan (percussion, music arranger) and later Patrick (guitar) formed Aston as a way of opening classical music up to young people and audiences who may not have been exposed to classical music. Early on in Astonʼs career they were the house band on Australian TV show “The Matty Johns Show”, a Rugby League based program on Channel 7.”

In 2012 ABCʼs Dancing With The Stars featured Astonʼs cover of David Guettaʼs “Without You” which was specially recorded for the “Macyʼs Stars of Dance” segment. The “So You Think You Can Dance” troupe Shaping Sounds performed to the track. The next week their arrangement of Bad Romance was also performed.

I think The Monster Symphony Lady Gaga – Aston is an amazing work of arrangements, musicianship and cinematography. In fact, I had the opportunity to play Aston’s Classical  cover of Rihanna Only Girl (In The World) the other night and dancers loved it! As a creative professional DJ here in the New Jersey and New York area, I am grateful I get the chance to experiment with some of these fine Classical covers by Aston and Vitamin String Quartet, among others.

David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You

I have been an admirer of David Guetta’s work as well as Usher over the years.  In recent years there are some that have believed that Usher had lost his edge and was now just another Pop musician. David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You demonstrates he still has it. It was not that long ago that James Brown had announced Usher as ‘The Godson of Soul’ at The Grammys.

His new works, David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You and “Climax”, Usher is showing some of the ‘oomph’ that has not been as evident in recent years. It is good to see and a great song that every professional DJ can include in our performances!

The electroballad features the anguished vocals of R&B singer Usher. Guetta told Billboard magazine it’s “maybe the biggest song I’ve made in my life.” He added: “We were in bargaining sessions for a while. Usher was saying, ‘I need this record for my album.’ I said, ‘I’m sorry, I cannot give it to you.’ After a while he called me back and gave in.” Guetta told MTV News why he chose Usher to guest on this song. “It’s just totally emotional,” he said. “Some of the record is a proper ballad, and then it goes to that crazy dance beat. It’s perfect for him, because he’s famous for his ballads. And he’s also now famous for those big club records that he comes with. He’s an amazing dancer, so I felt like he was the artist that I needed.” Usher told MTV News that this ode to not giving up on love in the face of adversity resonated with him personally. “I think the world wanted a record like that. David Guetta Featuring Usher Without You really spoke to the journey that I’ve actually been on in the last three years,” he said. “Traveling all around the world, music sounds different. There’s many different genres, and when you see R&B and pop and house, as well as electronic, come together, that’s the reality of what music is.”

David Guetta: Dance Maker: Rhode Island DJ Recognizes

It has now been enough years of David Guetta producing hit songs that have made it in the American music industry that his body of work gets requests from top shelf artists wanting to utilize his talents.


It took several albums before he was accepted in The USA after international success globally.  This is not unusual for many European artists still today. House music is still a growing genre here. It is gaining some strength on the East Coast but still lags behind Dance and Hip Hop for the Club and Pop audiences.


David Guetta was initially a Disc Jockey at the Broad Club in Paris at age seventeen. He played Pop hits and was turned-on to House music the following year. He began promoting shows at clubs and creating some mixes of his own. He produced some songs with Hip Hop artists from Paris with local success but still not a big break.


He released his first hit single in 2001 with Chris Willis, “Just A Little More Love”. They met while Willis was vacationing in France. In 2003 David Guetta released “Just For One Day (Heroes)”, a remix of a David Bowie song. He has won two Grammys and nominated for several others.


Some of the artists he has worked with include Kelly Rowland, Akon, Rihanna, Kid Cudi, Black Eyed Peas, Flo Rida, Pitbull, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Hudson, Chris Brown, Leona Lewis, Fergie, LMFAO, Snoop Dog, Taio Cruz, Ludacris, Jessie J and Madonna. A virtual who’s who of dance and pop music. It is probable that over the next few years David Guetta will have his hand in many of the top hits worldwide from varying artists and genres all at once.
