Scottish dj and producer Calvin Harris (real name Adam Wiles) emerged with Acceptable in the 80s, a faithful imitation of synth-pop of the 1980s, and The Girls, inspired by David Guetta's dance music, both collected on his debut album I Created Disco (2007). Ready for the Weekend was another diligent imitation of synth-pop but the bombastic house music of I'm Not Alone, on the same album Ready for the Weekend (2009), signaled a more focused transition to the dancefloor. From then on his albums continued to offer facile dance-pop that recycled the most abused stereotypes of house music of the 1990s. 18 Months (2012) spawned a record number of hits: Feel So Close (Guns'n'Roses in a disco of the 1970s), Sweet Nothing, Blame and Summer, were the heavy bangers of Motion (2014), but Bounce, Let's Go and We'll Be Coming Back displayed the influence of the r&b ballad, of hip hop and of the singer-songwriters. Two collaborations with Rihanna, We Found Love (2011) and This Is What You Came For (2014), helped export his music to the rest of the world. The hits kept coming: Feels, off Funk Wav Bounces Vol 1 (2017), One Kiss (2018), Promises (2018), etc.
