Summer deserves its own soundtrack — for the beach, for warm nights and for the road. But don't worry if your travel budget is tight: This summer, All Things Considered and NPR Music will take you on a global journey through music. We're checking in on DJs, musicians and writers for the songs that define summer in some of the world's most vibrant cities. We're calling it The Spin.
People from all over flock to Ibiza, a Spanish island in the pristine turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, for the beaches, the sunsets, the whitewashed villages and especially the nightlife. All summer, the island is home to some of the world's top DJs, including dance music's most coveted producer, David Guetta. He told All Things Considered host Michele Norris that he opens his legendary Thursday-night parties at the club Pacha with his own song, "Gettin' Over." He calls the song "my weapon."
