Biography

Biography by Stewart Mason
Favoring a naughty schoolboy look that makes him seem even younger than his already tender years (22 when his first major-label album was released), Scottish artist, producer, and remixer Calvin Harris has a similarly youthful and forward-looking approach to his music. Skipping the usual apprenticeship in the clubs or on indie labels, Harris went from posting his ... Read more in Amazon's Calvin Harris Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

It takes a special sort of guts to call your debut album I Created Disco, but that’s Calvin Harris all over. Hailing from Dumfries, Scotland, Harris comes on not unlike a day-glo cross between Les Rythmes Digitales, Prince and Mike ‘The Streets’ Skinner, dropping witty rhymes and sweet falsetto melodies atop chunky, ‘80s influenced electro-pop. "Merrymaking at My Place" is an all-back-to-mine anthem built from digital squeaks and a palpitating disco bassline that sees Harris leading the party in swaggering geezer manner. "Vegas" is as close as you’ll get to a bassbin-shaking ghetto anthem when you hail from north of Hadrian’s Wall. And "Colours" is a cheeky plea to any potential girlfriend that they dress to impress: "Get some colours on!" Rumour has it Harris has been recording with Kylie, and it’s easy to believe. Much like his lyrics, you see, these tracks are simple, but undeniably effective. Excellent breakthrough single "Acceptable In The ‘80s" bumps along with exactly the right mix of retro cheese and modern production gleam, while the title track pits stonking basslines and electronic whooshes against an amusing monologue about how Harris did, in fact, create disco. You won’t believe him, exactly, but he’s certainly got the patter. -- Louis Pattison

4.0 out of 5 stars Calvin Harris - I Created Disco 17 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
There's no doubting the popularity of this guy. He's everywhere!
And good luck to him, he's had a couple of excellent singles and now he has his all-important album.

This could have been a 5 star album but there are a couple of tracks which are a let down.

But i'm not one to dwell on negatives, i talk about positives, and there are plenty of these on here.

We all know Acceptable In The 80's and The Girls, but the tracks that really stand out include Colours, I Created Disco (my personal fav!) Disco Heat + Certified (a Mylo esque track).

Also worth a mention is Vegas, which is a cheeky edit of Acceptable In The 80's. Very similar track, but it's still v. good!

Recommended definitly for the music, but also just for the fact that he is dance music's biggest star at present, and you might want to know what all the fuss it about.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Created.... Boring Tracks 15 Jan 2008
By Jas
Format:Audio CD
Calvin Harris arguably produced one of the best dance tunes of 2007 with 'Acceptable In The 80s'. With its very retro synth lines, catchy vocal hook and commercial appeal, the track caught the imagination of the nation. The debut album, therefore, was expected to continue that trend.

What we get, however, is dull electro trash that is as pointless as it is boring, with tracks that lack little imagination and substance. The album starts well with the catchy, funky 'Merrymaking At My Place', but it all goes slowly downhill from there. 'Colours' starts well but ends up going round in a boring loop, and the same can be said for 'The Industry', 'Traffic Cops' and the abysmal 'Electro Man'.

There are flashes of brilliance - the well thought out and produced title track 'I Created Disco' and the funky 'Disco Heat' with it's disco inspired guitar hooks spring to mind. But even these can't detract from the feel of the album being full of fillers, tracks that start well but end up going nowhere. And ironically it's a track that sounds like an edgier version of Acceptable In The 80s 'Vegas' that is the highlight of the album.

'Acceptable In The 80s' set such a high benchmark - it's disappointing that 'I Created Disco' falls way short.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK........bit overated in my optinion 29 Mar 2014

Thought I would give this a try. Impressed, but not overly impressed. Some songs are amazing, some songs are just dumb. Some of the lyrics seem a bit retarded......not very intellectual. Guess if your 'off your nut' you would dig this.

You would think that Calvin Harris created disco with this, his earlier work. Absolutely kicking tunes that draw you in and keep the beat!

Calvin really should play songs like; Merrymaking At My Place, The Girls and Acceptable In The 80s during his DJ sets!

Calvin Harris is probably best described as one of those musicians who have found better exposure in collaborating with other performers over the years, creating entertaining results along the process. But back in 2007, all we had from him was this album that spawned 2 very catchy chart hits (Acceptable in the 80s, and The Girls), which are still quite popular pieces of dance pop to this day- the number of times we hear Acceptable in the 80s for a documentary about the 1980s is countless.
The rest of I Created Disco does not hold up, unless you are really a hardcore fan of electro pop. The vocals are not interesting, the beats sound like homage to classic electronic from the late 1970s and early 1980s, and they just do not make an impact, for the album, as a whole. Trying to listen to the album more then once is inadvisable, unless you do not mind torturing yourself to the same beats repeatedly. However, the last track, Electro Man actually sounds something you can tolerate, let alone appreciate, in what Harris is doing to make you love what he is trying to do. That is the real hit, which criminally deserves more exposure then it did back in the day, amongst all the uninspiring music from this album.
In short, Calvin Harris' I Created Disco is not a statement that will hold up with fans of electro in the end, and it is probably best to sum up that he created disco that is not worth banging on about, particularly with some of his more recent material being more substantial in contrast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cardboard cover 23 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I already had the normal version of the album, but Glow in the Dark seemed cool to me so I bought it. I was kind of disappointed to find out it was a cardboard cover instead of plastic since it damages quickly.
Cool music though.
