Detroit Social Club are an Indie Rock band from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England formed in 2007. This was their second single released on 30 March 2009.
Main man David Burn told Q magazine March 2010 that he preferred not to be referred to as a songwriter. He explained: "I consider myself a vibe creator, the words and what other people relate to, like the songs, that's just the sprinkles on top of the music I've spent ages doing." He added: "We've got this song 'Sunshine People' and I wanted the snare sound so that when someone hears it they'll want to go out and get pissed, smoke loads of tabs and pull five birds."
The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
