Yo Deej you were right about this. Heard it on the radio yesterday. Big tune!

I keep trying to remember how this goes and then realise I'm thinking of "Bonkers" instead.

why, why does he sing

Hard House SugBanton (blueski), Tuesday, 12 May 2009 14:06 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yes this is a worthy question to ask. His vocals actually work on "Dance Wiv Me" because he's playing middling everyman, but here it's just like, can you please replace your sonky moaning with the girl from Fragma's "Toca's Miracle" so we can properly get down to business?

or Ian Van Dahl, he had a nice voice. very feminine...

i was just listening to that youtube clip thinking "yuk, this is awful" then the beat kicked in and i figured i'd better just go ahead and download it now as i will no doubt be forced to play this for the tourists sooner or later

Dear god, I have to witness this fool playing live at the UCL summer ball.
Not only that, but there's a funky house DJ ("Stevie B") on the line up also.

Calvin Harris is trying to ingratiate himself to ILM now!


Calvin Harris has described the state of music in the charts over the past couple of years as 'very depressing'.

The Scottish dance star said the number of guitar bands in recent times had been 'boring'.

Calvin Harris was speaking as he missed out on the award for Best Contemporary Song at the Ivor Novellos.

Harris said: "Things got very depressing, things got very boring with indie band after indie band - it became known as indie-landfill."

Charts change

"There's no more accurate description for the state that music was in," he continued.

Harris and Dizzee Rascal were attending the awards held at London's Grosvenor House Hotel but missed out to Elbow in the category of Best Contemporary Song.

Commenting on an apparent increase in dance music Harris said: "I think people have just realised they just want to have fun for a while.

"I think the summer's coming around…we're in a recession people want to have fun, people want to forget about their worries.

"They want to listen to Bonkers, they want to listen to the new Basement Jaxx single and I think that's a good thing, I love happy music."

Calvin Harris will spend the summer playing festivals including Glastonbury, T In The Park and Creamfields.

funny thing is, his music is just as boring as the shitty "indie" bands he slags off.

i think we can all agree that if Calvin Harris and all those indie-landfill bands stopped making music and just buggered off then the charts would be better.

no we don't!

Or maybe CH is sticking it to Gavin Martin in equal measure: http://blogs.mirror.co.uk/the-ticket/2009/08/album-of-the-week-calvin-harri.html

I don't think Gavin Martin has been called a "kid" since 1978

RICH PEOPLES KIDS GETTING GOOD REVIEWS BECAUSE MUMMY FUCKED THE JOURNO IN THE 80S

Might want to ruminate on this given that a strong majority of music journos are in their 20s or 30s

Tim Krul ringmaster (DJ Mencap), Friday, 14 August 2009 10:04 (eight years ago) Permalink

Right, I misunderstood, who is he referring to?

Wow, that Petriedes article is one of the best things I think I've ever read of his. I mean that totally without irony.

So basically, Harris' angst about that article boils down to "wah wah wah, Alexis Petriedes is smarter and better educated than I am" - WOW, that must *really* hurt.

hüzün (Masonic Boom), Friday, 14 August 2009 10:17 (eight years ago) Permalink

Credit where credit's due, I think everyone gave that album two stars, not just Petridis.

Matt DC, Friday, 14 August 2009 10:19 (eight years ago) Permalink

Now clarified: "that wasn't about @alexispetridis' review by the way, his came as no surprise."
