Calvin Harris

18 Months (Sony)


This Scottish DJ has written and produced a succession of UK dance hits. Five of them are on 18 Months. Only “We Found Love” with Rihanna has been a chart-topper on this side of the ocean, so far. Harris employs a rhythmic keyboard attack on the heels of repetitive chorus. You know it’s coming but it is irresistible. Pick hit is “Drinking from the Bottle” (featuring Tinie Tempah), for driving many a sourpuss to go all Will Ferrell in A Night at the Roxbury, ideally without an actual bottle. A couple of tracks could be classed as torture by technophiles for technophobes. Otherwise, there’s no way around dancing to Calvin.
