My opinion...

Guetta is a hell of a producer. So many great tracks, so many cooperation with other artists, so much hard work... The point is, I don't think Guetta is pure house, he leans to the pop side a lot, although some of his tracks are really deep and let's say "underground". I personally never liked him THAT much, I don't even like the way he looks behind the decks, with that stupid smile, I don't know, I just don't like that.

Just like Bob Sinclair, I've seen some comments here on the forum... People say he's cheesy. He's not, he's just more POP than HOUSE, that's it... To make a multimillion times sold track is not a cheesy thing to do, it's talent and hard work. I don't like him that much either, but I'd never say he's a bad producer.

And Axwell? Oh, man... Now he's got some SERIOUS vibe. Pure house with a pinch of everything else, just to keep it different every time. Brilliant DJ sets also: by the look of every gig he does, anybody can say: "Man, now THIS guy got here REALLY prepared!". He's really INTO what he plays, and that is soooo good to see when you're out there on a party with your friends. It's like having a flawless waiter at a good restaurant. Full service all the way. That's why we like him.

And regarding the results of Top100, just look at it this way. The most sold and most drinked beer is always an affordable one, with ok taste, but other than that - nothing special. People buy it because it is cheap, available and simply because they just don't know what a good beer should taste like. Ax is the best, but not all people have the capacity to understand the best.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Cheers

Well, the reason why Guetta is cooperating with so many other artists is pretty obvious. He cannot produce on his own. Dirty South said once that he only wrote the lyrics of How Soon Is Now for example. Guetta is the "face" of this music, but the man behind is Joachim Garraud, who made all the hits like Love Is Gone and so on. We had here in this forum an article about this issue, where Tocadisco (!) compared Guetta with Milli Vanilli...
His dj-ing skills are okay, nothing special but okay

Considering that David Guetta is the man behind the music and Swedish House Mafia is just the "face", i think your comment is more than incompetent and shows your lack of knowledge in terms of house music. Guetta actually deserves to be No.1 in the Dj ranking. He's a way better producer than Axwell anyways. Think about it! Guetta got lots of well known artists on his side, like Akon or the Black Eyed Peas, just to name a few. As you all know, the more popular the people you work with, the better the music. Unlike David Guetta, Axwell's productions reflect his commercial interests. The times when Axwell was all about music are long gone. Nowadays, the artist Axwell is just a media product.

Axwell < Guetta, sry guys!

Love, your pentrat0r
