Calvin Harris

7zm.jpgIn preparation for the Good Vibrations festival this Sunday I thought I might write my thoughts on a few artists which i’m excited to see. I think I’m not the only one to be excited to see Calvin Harris!

He’s a 24 year old singer, songwriter and record producer which is a combination that you often find in most artists these days, especially in his genre of music. His music is often described as alternative electro/nu rave. It has a great combination of beats that overlap each other mixed in with awesome synth melodies. Most of his songs are fast paced and sounds highly energetic which I hope is contagious enough in the Good Vibes dance pit.

His music making began at the age of 15 and he produced an EP in 2002. It wasn’t till 2006 when he was discovered through myspace (of course), and recorded his first album that was released in mid-2007.

He has remixed a fair few songs including one from CSS- Let’s Make Love and Listen To Death From Above. He’s worked with Kylie Minogue and he’s currently working with Sophie Ellis Bextor. I suggest you keep your ears out for his songs which is likely to be played on Triple J or even buy his Album – I Created Disco- because it’s so worth it.
