David Guetta, currently 51 years old, is known for his years of experience, which includes his musical and personal wisdom. If we analyze and dissect his past, fans will re-discover that the beloved French producer was once married for more than 20 years to Cathy Guetta.
In 2014, the couple parted ways. Although divorce is a truly troubling time, Guetta found love again in 2015, a mere year later, when he met Jessica Ledon, a stunning actress, currently 24-year-old.
Recently, the couple has been under the microscope, not because of their age difference, but because Ledon was spotted rocking a HUGE diamond ring during a trip to Miami.
TMZ has reported that the beautiful rock is a promise ring, gifted to Ledon by Guetta; however, speculations have continued to surface as the producer’s reps have yet to confirm, or deny, these intriguing rumors.
All we can say is that the ring is stunning, and suspiciously placed on her ring finger – where most new fiancés would flaunt their news… What do you think?

EDM’s sweetest artist has a special mix incoming.
There are only a handful of electronic music artists who have experienced growth as organic and meteoric as Slushii.
Just a couple of years ago, Julian Scanlan was living in a small suburban farm town in New Jersey, working at Best Buy. Dealing with Asperger Syndrome, he struggled socially, and the kids at school weren’t exactly understanding.
But music soothed him.
He would find solace in expressing himself through sound. In his late teen years, he went by the name DJ Swoon, producing dubstep and electro. With music, pure intention and focused visualization, he began to grow, socially and musically.
Courtesy of Soundcloud’s absurdly stringent violation policies, when he posted an unofficial remix, his account was deleted. Rather than lose hope, he saw it as a chance to start fresh and move forward with a solidified sound and deeper sense of artistry.
Slushii was born.
Inspired by the power of visualization, he decided his goals for 2016 would be to play a major festival, get Skrillex’s attention and sign to OWSLA. He wrote them down, envisioned them vividly and believed in them with all his heart. More so, he worked tirelessly to make his dreams a reality.
Can you guess what happened next?
At Sunset Music Festival in Florida, Scanlan heard Jack U, the former super duo of Skrillex and Diplo, play out his bone-crushing remix of Skrillex’s “Killa.”
Just a few months later, Slushii performed his very first DJ set at HARD Summer in California, one of the top festivals in the U.S. The performance featured a surprise appearance from Skrillex himself.
Signing with Moe Shalizi, the man who manages acts like Marshmello, Jauz and Ghastly, Slushii went on to play clubs and festivals on a global scale. His sugary sweet sound grabbed the electronic music world’s attention and he was an instant hit. Balancing feel-good sounds with unforgiving bass-heavy tunes, he knew where he stood as an artist.
20 years old now, he has released a string of singles and remixes, 2 full-length albums, collaborated with a bunch of the biggest artists in electronic music and performed countless shows all over the world.
This weekend, Slushii will be making his debut on One Mix, Beats 1’s weekly radio show. Expect a high energy mix with music from artists like Marshmello, Wuki, Jauz, Sikdope, and of course, a selection of his own tunes. Knowing Slushii, the mix is bound to oscillate between a feels fest and a bass rager, so stay locked.

After a long period of silence, KOAN Sound is set to release a brand new album. The duo consisting of Jim Bastow and Will Weeks has not released music since their “Dynasty EP” back in 2015. Over three years in the making, KOAN Sound has announced that they will be releasing a studio album called “Polychrome” on December 7th.
KOAN Sound made a lot of noise back in the day with releases on Skrillex’s OWSLA label as well as UK’s Inspected Records. Their new album, “Polychrome” will be released on their very own label called Shoshin Records. The album consists of 11 new tracks and unlike most other albums, the 11 tracks are meant to be listened to as a whole from start to finish. Each track will present a different element of electronic music while taking the listener on an atmospheric journey. When commenting on the their new album, KOAN Sound stated the following:
“We wanted the album to be listenable but also work live at the same time – that was the hardest part. We made every track as a cinematic piece; each one tells a story. There isn’t a lot of repetition in terms of structure and arrangement, and each progresses in such a way that we can play it live in its entirety”
The duo will make their return to the live stage in 2019 as well. Their first show will take place on February 16th in their hometown of Bristol at the iconic Trinity venue. Global dates are set to be announced as the time comes closer. Check out trailer of their new album ‘Polychrome’ below.
