BRIT Awards to feature medley performance from Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa, Sam Smith, Rag ‘n’ Bone ManCalvin Harris 1

Calvin Harris, or shall we say, Adam Richard Wiles, has just been unveiled as a headlining performer at the 2019 BRIT Awards. The annual awards show is the UK equivalent of the Grammys, paying special mind to local artists from the regards. Luckily, Britain has no shortage of top tier acts—and it certainly shows in their headline billing. Joining Wiles for a medley performance of sorts will be Dua Lip, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, and Sam Smith for what the awards describe perfectly as “epic.”

Likely, the three singers will be performing their biggest hits—such as Lipa’s “New Rules,” or Sam Smith’s “Too Good At Goodbyes”—with Harris taking the decks to tie the bombastic package together. The show is set to air on February 20.

Is it 2011? Because two of house music’s top guns have crossed paths on a new progressive house remix. Seemingly minutes after dropping his latest album, a tech house mixtape, and a new original with Netsky, David Guetta has stepped in to remix Calvin Harris‘s “Promises,” with the only telltale sign that it is indeed 2018 being that certified star and modern-day pop crooner Sam Smith is in on the momentous endeavor.

Leaning in to his recent creative exploration across genre and sound, Guetta has brought “Promises” from its 80s-leaning neo-pop to an energetic house style. With production that manages to maintain subtle melancholy with a simultaneous uplifting progression, this remix is precise, and a welcome reminder of the progressive house apex in the mid 2010s. Guetta’s rendition works in creating simple synth melodies in a manner that almost sounds (dare we say) Swedish, given the trio’s chord progressions tend to ring with resplendence with minimal production froth to weigh them down.
