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
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),
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),
