This post was originally published on this site

Ringing in the New Year with Calvin Harris is a guaranteed good time. The crossover maverick is known for assembling radio hits as well as large audiences to hear his talent live as he works said hits into danceable sets. Luckily for fans in the United States, Omnia Las Vegas has secured the Grammy-winning producer, and club resident, for what’s shaping up to be an extravagant celebration in one of the strip’s finest clubs to date.

From 8pm onwards on New Year’s Eve, those in attendance will be treated to an intense and enjoyable audio-visual experience brought about by Omnia’s beautiful decor and crisp sound system. We imagine Harris has something particularly special planned to ensure that midnight’s arrival will be truly unforgettable. Furthermore, everyone who buys a ticket to the event will also be gifted with a copy of his new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. The LP has gained quite a lot of acclaim thus far, given its star-studded list of collaborators and singles like “Slide” that have dominated airwaves as of late.

Calvin Harris got right up in everybody’s peripheral feels this summer when he dropped Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. As fans rode the record’s wave of funk all summer long, Harris has re-embraced “Feels,” a tune so colorful it’s been done over in video—not once—but twice.

In the video’s second edition Pharrell, Katy Perry, and Big Sean team-up to jam out on a ’70’s inspired, neon stage. While the first of the video package featured the three stars in the tropics, this time they’re riding out the track’s funky bass as a glammed-out jam band.

It appears Calvin Harris has a history of porta potty provocation

This post was originally published on this site

Multiple reports now confirm that the world’s highest paid DJ has a track record of finding himself porta potty pickles, most recently reoccurring during England’s V Festival in 2015. Calvin Harris was reportedly barricaded in the bathroom that he was using after reportedly refusing to sign an autograph for a member of Madness, a leading band in the ska revival. Once Harris declined to provide his signature, the band’s saxophone player, Lee Thompson, trapped Harris in the porta potty by lodging a scaffolding pole against the bathroom’s dual entrance/exit.

Harris’s 2015 portable bathroom fiasco would arise as the second instance of porta potty misfortune. Jon McClure, frontman of English rock band Reverend And The Makers, was the first to engage Harris in foul porta potty play in 2009 at Yorkshire’s Bingley Festival, allegedly tipping Harris’ portable stall on its side. Calvin Harris may understandably be nursing a porta potty phobia now that sh*t has gotten real on what appears to be multiple occasions, though only time will tell.

YouTube has become one of the most popular streaming sites in the music industry within the past several years. Used more frequently by younger people, YouTube generates upwards of 1,000,000,000 plays a day. Now, with the help of YouTube’s geocoded streaming data, analysts have generated a map that shows music popularity and culture in the United States.

Taking into consideration two of the most prominent artists in the dance-pop crossover genre, Calvin Harris and The Chainsmokers, the following maps show relative popularity in different parts of the country. If one part of a map is lighter, it doesn’t mean people there weren’t watching the artist’s videos; it just means fans were more likely to listen to a variety of other artists. The darker the map, the more plays.

Below are the maps for both the Chainsmokers and Calvin Harris, listed in order of YouTube views.

Calvin Harris’ star-studded fifth album has arrived

This post was originally published on this site

In 2017, Calvin Harris has managed to engender anticipation for an album throughout both the mainstream and dance music communities to a nearly unprecedented degree. Though the Scottish producer only announced Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1 in May, he’s been giving fans an increasingly clear picture of the LP since he first teased the Frank Ocean and Migos collaboration that would become “Slide” in January of this year.

In the months since, Harris has systematically released several singles off of the star-studded album, following “Slide” with “Heatstroke,” “Rollin,” and “Feels.” The team of Frank Ocean, Migos, Young Thug, Pharrell, Ariana Grande, Future, Khalid, Katy Perry, and Big Sean is enough star power to fill far more than a single album. Yet, this enviable selection is limited only to the aforementioned songs, which comprise less than half of the record. If Harris’ mission for Funk Wav was to recruit a stupefying number of hitmakers, then he did so more than duly.

Today, June 30, Calvin Harris has released his fifth studio album in full, featuring six previously unreleased songs which feature the likes of Snoop Dogg, A-Trak, and Nicki Minaj, among many others. Tailored for summer sensibilities and primed for the top of the charts, Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1 is soon to be ubiquitous.

Tracklist:

1. Slide feat. Frank Ocean and Migos
2. Cash Out feat. Schoolboy Q, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and D.R.A.M.
3. Heatstroke feat. Young Thug, Pharrell, and Ariana Grande
4. Rollin feat. Future and Khalid
5. Prayers Up feat. Travis Scott, and A-Trak
6. Holiday feat. Snoop Dogg, John Legend, and Takeoff
7. Skrt On Me feat. Nicki Minaj
8. Feels feat. Pharrell, Katy Perry, and Big Sean
9. Faking It feat. Kehlani and Lil Yachty
10. Hard To Love feat. Jessie Reyez

Watch This: Calvin Harris releases ‘Feels’ music video

This post was originally published on this site

Tropical pop hit “Feels” by Calvin Harris featuring Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, and Big Sean takes on a retro beach vibe in recently released the music video. The video begins by panning to a blonde Perry in the grasslands, Williams standing in a row boat, and Big Sean sitting in a jungle with a parrot — perhaps one of whom gave a glimpse at Harris’ album? — on either side of him. The video alternates between the three in their respective locations, with the bass-playing Harris appearing intermittently throughout. The video culminates with the camera panning out to reveal that everyone was placed around the same pond. The video was directed, unsurprisingly, by Emil Nava, Harris’s right hand man when it comes to music videos.

“Feels” is the eighth track on Harris’s upcoming album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, to be released June 30th.

Hip-hop is well represented too, with Travis Scott, Lil Yachty, and D.R.A.M. featured on the album’s booming list of credits. Singles “Slide,” “Rollin” and “Feels” have already been released, teasing one of the most hotly-anticipated records of the summer and in just a few days, we’ll be hearing Funk Wav in its full glory. See the track list below:

DJ Khaled’s new album, Grateful, is completely star-studded. Khaled brings big names like Calvin Harris, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Chance the Rapper into his new album, guaranteeing it’s a sure summer hit.

“Don’t Quit” with electronic music’s top-earner Calvin Harris also features contributions from Travis Scott and Jeremih. The feel-good summer jam steps back from Khaled’s usual intense rap and hip-hop vibes and takes the listener poolside instead. With its catchy melody and smooth beats, “Don’t Quit” is sure to be a standout from the album’s 23 tracks.

Khaled has been making headlines this week, but unfortunately, most of them aren’t for the new album.

Following multiple set issues at EDC Las Vegas, Khaled claimed Insomniactried to sabotage” his set. He reportedly came out 20 minutes after his set was supposed to begin and was met with sound and production problems. In videos from the set, EDC attendees could be heard booing the artist as he tried to recover from the issues. Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella released a statement attempting to quell the rumors and backlash from fans, saying Khaled arrived on time, but equipment issues delayed and affected his performance.

Lucky for Khaled, this stacked new album is sure to whisk away the lingering EDC resentment and usher in news of the album’s epic collaborations. Grateful is Khaled’s 10th studio album and is out today on his record label, We the Best Music Group and Epic Records.
