Calvin Harris lets fans engage him in impromptu Twitter Q&A, distances himself from EDM

Calvin Harris lets fans engage him in impromptu Twitter Q&A, distances himself from EDMCalvin Harris 1

Calvin Harris took a short break yesterday from cranking out number No. 1 records and posing for Armani underwear spreads to engage in a slew of Twitter exchanges with fans on the state of his music and “EDM” at large.

The Scottish “Feel So Close” producer answered music and non-music-related inquiries alike with a bit of comedy and a great deal of candor. A glaring takeaway from the repartee is Harris’s delineating his current chosen production style with the now-ubiquitous umbrella term, “EDM.”

Upon a fan asking whether or not he’d be “going back to EDM at some point,” Harris replied,

“EDM has been sad, slow songs for years now. Doesn’t have anything in common with the music I love to make. 2010-2014 edm was more house influenced to me. Anyway now I’m out the bubble and making big records with amazing singers that sound like house music to me…”

Additionally, Harris took the opportunity to suggest he’ll be diving back into the festival circuit soon–now that many of his large-scale projects (namely Funk Wav) are in the books. He also announced an indefinite retirement from his former live performance setup, having purportedly exhausted the format at this point in his career. However, make no mistake: at 34, Harris continues to flex his adventurousness in the studio. Just this month, he offered one of his rare vocal demonstrations on his new house single with Benny Blanco, “I Found You.”

Benny Blanco taps Calvin Harris for vocals on infectious new single, ‘I Found You’

Longtime fans of Calvin Harris might recall that in addition to his penchant for creating irresistibly catchy EDM records, the Scotsman is also quite the crooner. Quite a few of his productions — including his smash hits, “Feel So Close,” and “Summer” — involve his garbled, yet in-tune lyrics. However, it’s been quite some time since we’ve heard Harris get behind the mic.

That’s all changed now, thanks to Benny Blanco’s new single “I Found You.” Blanco, a legend in his own right who’s produced records for everyone from Ed Sheeran to Cashmere Cat, coaxed Harris back into the studio to lend his vocals to the mix, and the result is a sunny house tune whose mellow piano chords and grooving bassline feel like the sonic equivalent of a sunny day. The collaboration is destined to land in the heads of the people it touches — and stay there.

The next production to bear the “Benny Blanco” stamp will feature Calvin Harris as both artists recently announced in respective social media posts that announced the collaboration to come. Although neither Blanco nor Harris shared the name of the forthcoming track, the new jam is slated for an imminent November 2 release.

“I was always attracted to how much soul and musicality he brought to the table,” Blanco said in praise of Harris’s style.

The collaboration will expectedly tap into Harris’s distinctive ear for feel-good grooves. Already confirmed is the yet-to-be-named track’s impending use of Harris’s talents not only as a beat layer, but as a vocalist–-the “One Kiss” producer seldom sings, even on his own tunes. The song will follow Blanco’s well received Halsey and Khalid feature, “Eastside,” and Harris’s recent work with Normani on her latest two releases, “Checklist” and “Slow Down.”

Normani has teamed up with Calvin Harris on two new original tracks. After sparking rumors of a collaboration in the works when they were spotted walking the red carpet of the American Music Awards together, the Normani x Calvin Harris project has confirmed the two artists are walking the walk just a few months later.

“Checklist” and “Slow Down” sees the former Fifth Harmony member continue on her star-studded solo career, following work with Khalid, Kehlani and Quavo. The project also sees Harris exploring new territory heading into music with inspirations from reggae and dancehall. While his other contemporaries, Major Lazer and Dillon Francis, have done similar exploration on recent projects, Harris has shown his reign in the upper echelons of pop will continue as he bridges international sounds with mainstream top 40 accessibility.
