Watch David Guetta’s ‘ The Road to Jack Back ‘

Alexandre Trochut

‘ The Road to Jack Back ‘ explain how Jack Back allow Guetta’s return to the deeper side of his dance roots, the underground music – where it all started.

Brilliantly conducted, ‘ The Road to Jack Back ‘ reveals an artist happy to finally be able to explain the reasons behind this artistic direction but also how several years at the top of world music have finally removed from his passion for electronic music.

Because David Guetta is an endangered specie – a DJ – a music lover whose only reason is to share the music with the greatest number, and on this point, the documentary explains clearly why the artist had become a prisoner of his own name and how his Jack Back alias allows him to flourish in the middle again as he explained :

” Since the album represents a full cycle to me I wanted to go back to the beginning of the cycle, where I’m coming from. These are actually the type of records that come more naturally to me than pop, because I’ve done this all my life.

I wanted to create something very personal. I get excited by music that is part of a culture and that’s why I wanted to make this. There is no commercial approach to it, I’m doing it for the love of music. ”

– David Guetta


Last year, alongside the release of his latest album ‘7’ the french superstar DJ and producer officially announced his Jack Back alias.

The Road to Jack Back ‘ see today Beatport capturing the story behind this moniker in a short documentary which was premiered during Winter Music Conference 2019 in Miami, and was followed by a live Q&A with David Guetta. 15 minutes of happiness. You can’t miss it.
