David Guetta ft. Kid Cudi: 'Memories'

By
Released on Monday, Apr 5 2010

It's official: David Guetta is unavoidable. Switch on the radio, flick through the music channels, head down your local disco... and the feeling of an impending Guetta production is palpable. Now, after scoring a pair of No.1s, twiddling the knobs on a certain Black Eyed Peas track and even bagging a Grammy, The French DJ is raiding his One Love album for another single. Has it really been four months since his last one?

Here he drafts in Kid 'Day N' Nite' Cudi to lay down the vocals over his trademark piano-backed beats. All the makings of a Guetta classic are present and correct, and Cudi's nonchalant, mellow vocals are pleasant enough, but it all feels that bit too familiar. It's hard to avoid the conclusion that 'Memories' adds nothing new to a sound that seemingly took over the world in '09 - not that anyone's going to grumble when it comes on at Oceana this Friday night, of course.
