Calvin Harris – ‘I Created Disco’

Calvin Harris' cheeky "I Created Disco" arrives in the States pumping its fists, spilling its drink and dragging wallflowers onto the dancefloor.

Continuing to make dance music safe for the rock set, buzzy U.K. export Calvin Harris’ cheeky “I Created Disco” arrives in the States pumping its fists, spilling its drink and dragging wallflowers onto the dancefloor.

A MySpace sensation, the 23-year-old Scottish DJ/producer/singer’s infectious singles “The Girls” and “Acceptable in the ’80s” recall LCD Soundsystem in their explosive, sloganeering choruses and trance-inducing beats. But Harris takes a more ironic approach, tackling subjects such as the kind of girls he likes (he likes all kinds) and his hope that said girls will add a splash of color to their wardrobe. The title track even finds him giving a phony interview about how he created disco music in the mid-’70s. Recorded on the cheap at the Harris home, “I Created Disco” boasts a handful of truly toe-tapping bass lines and a bevy of different instrumental approaches.
