Merrymaking At My Place
Calvin Harris continues to take over 2007 with the release of top 10 album 'I Created Disco'. Following two top 10 singles with sales over 200,000 and a rapturous response to his festival appearances this summer, Calvin returns on August 20th with the release of third single "Merrymaking At My Place".
Since the release of debut single Acceptable In The 80s, Calvin has developed an impressive reputation and fan base, (both Mark Ronson & Groove Armada are noted fans) and has been propelled straight to the Top 10 of the charts.
Calvin Harris's debut album, with the subtle title 'I Created Disco', cost nothing to record. He fashions future-disko using a battered old Amiga computer in his home studio. Not just one of those 'myspace sensations' you keep reading about. He is wildly popular amongst The Kids and on The Club Scene, a cult producer-slash-singer-slash-bedroom-knob-twiddler who can make the banging-est of electro dance tunes out of bugger-all kit. Writer, producer and visionary behind his own label FlyEye, Calvin is destined to define the sound of the summer. As Calvin explains: "Disco disappeared, didn't it? Everyone got sick of it. Now I'm reviving it, with space goggles, or something."
