David Vendetta's career as a professional DJ only starts in 2002. At that time, he meets Antoine Clamaran, another popular French DJ, who produces Vendetta's first three maxi singles Fiction – No Sex, She Loves Me – Party People and Alicante – Cleopatra. He also starts working as a producer when American DJ Roger Sanchez asks him to remix some of his songs.
In 2006, Vendetta releases the song Love to love you baby, which samples Donna Summer, and manages to peak at #20 at the French Singles Chart. The follow-up single Unidos para la música even reaches the Top 5 in France and the Top 30 in Belgium-Wallonia.
Lawsuit against Mickaël Vendetta
In the beginning of 2010, David Vendetta filed a lawsuit against French internet phenomenon Mickaël Vendetta for unfair business practices, saying: "This guy is an impostor, a troublemaker. He only used my name to become popular". He asked for 100.000 euros in damages; however, he lost and was condemned to pay Mickaël Vendetta's 3,000 euro lawyer fees.
