There seems to be little boundaries Harris has yet to cross and his work speaks for itself. His music has been described as, “irresistibly infectious dance-pop tunes built from juicy staccato synths and squelchy electro basslines” and is relentlessly captivating dance floors in every corner of the globe. He has played for sold out stadium-sized crowds in the largest and most infamous nightclubs, events, and music festivals including, Creamfields, Ibiza and Electric Daisy Carnival just to name a few. “What I’m into at the moment,” says Calvin Harris, “is the idea of stadium dance. Playing football stadiums with massive riffs, big hands-in-the-air anthems. The whole ‘minimal’ thing has passed, for me.”
