Best known for: 
A ton of EDM/house chart hits.

Scotsman Harris kicked the year off with the chart-smashing ‘Giant’ with Rag’n’Bone Man in January, then scored two BRIT Awards in February. These were pretty big clues that he would have another remarkable year. Not only did he pick up Best Single for last year’s No.1 ‘One Kiss’ with Dua Lipa, but also Best Producer.

Now in his 10th consecutive Top 100 DJs poll year, it’s clear many believe he’s a fine DJ too — he’s back in the top twenty again this year. In fact, 2019 has been one of his busiest years behind the decks for quite some time with his Omnia residency in Las Vegas, his two high-profile residencies in two of Ibiza’s biggest clubs Pacha and Ushuaïa, and a summer squeezed with festival headline slots, including a rare UK gig where he gave the Creamfields crowd the sing-along they always wanted.

Another big sing-along from Calvin this year was his remix of ‘I’m Not Alone’. Celebrating 10 years since it changed his career and turned him into a pop star almost overnight, it’s clear there’s going to be many more remarkable years for Harris to come.
