I know Landon usually does the dance music posts, but good music is good music and I wanted to share a great new CD from Scotland’s Calvin Harris. Ready for the Weekend was released on August 17th of this year and it’s pretty sweet.
I didn’t really like his earlier album, I Created Disco, but more than a few tracks off Weekend are really good. It’s sort of a mix between Daft Punk and Tiesto. Calvin’s singing voice is sort of dramatic and deep, very Euro.
The new album has a track with Dizzee Rascal called “Dance Wiv Me”, which is a sweet dark beat behind it. The real stand out track for me though is “I’m Not Alone”. Love it!
Calvin Harris is currently on tour and is doing a DJ set in Vancouver at Venue on September 13th.
