Chart-topping DJ David Guetta has said “the future of music is in AI” after he used the technology to add a vocal in the style of Eminem to a recent song.

The DJ used two artificial intelligence sites to create lyrics and a rap in the style of the US star for a live show.

The French producer has said he will not release the track commercially.

But he said he thinks musicians will use AI as a tool to create new sounds in the future, because “every new music style comes from a new technology”.

Speaking to BBC music correspondent Mark Savage at the Brit Awards, Guetta said: “I’m sure the future of music is in AI. For sure. There’s no doubt. But as a tool.”

Guetta won the award for best producer at Saturday’s ceremony.

“Nothing is going to replace taste,” he said. “What defines an artist is, you have a certain taste, you have a certain type of emotion you want to express, and you’re going to use all the modern instruments to do that.”
