<Electro House> Calvin Harris is a talented producer and stands out amongst mainstream electronic producers as one with an honest and firm grip on the balance between talent and well developed ears and skills. The Scottish producer/DJ’s third album is called 18 Months as he has been releasing singles from this album for about the same length of time, hence the name. In a whirlwind of three years since his sophomore release Ready For The Weekend out in 2009 he shot to worldwide recognition with the global chart shattering pair-up with Rihanna called We Found Love, a buoyant, beat-driven floor-filler that topped two dozen charts by the end of last year. Enter the era of Calvin Harris, something of a hot commodity; straight after that he found himself enlisted to produce tracks for Mary J. Blige, Scissor Sisters, Cheryl Cole and Ke$ha. Calvin kicked things off with 18 Months back in 2011, with the release of the Kelis featured lead single Bounce which did really well across Europe and in Australia, but did not garner the same fervour in the States. Aside from his collaboration with Rihanna and Kelis, the album is glittered with famous and influential names such as Example, Neyo, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal and also includes producer Nicky Romero. If you’re into an international dance music sound that is delightful in its delivery without trying too hard to be ‘hot right now’ you will like this album.
