Okay, now enough of his achievements. Let’s have a sneak peek into what this ever humble, down to earth DJ has in his kitty.

4. Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Headphones
This is a popular headphone created by musician Dr. Dre. Beats had launched a new headphone model, in association with David Guetta, for disc spinners and were designed exclusively for DJs.
It seems that the otherwise humble star DJ cannot drive anymore. He is a human after all. He was caught speeding on roads of France several times, due to which his driving license has been banned for life. This means he cannot drive again in his life. However, this small glitch cannot create any hindrance in his popularity and his fan following!
The famous French DJ had once said, “My parents were extreme left, so everything was against the system. I was walking barefoot on the streets of Paris when I was eight. When I started to DJ they hated it, because for them, nightclubs, and all of this life, was terrible and fake.”
We are glad that he listened to his heart and pursued his dreams!
