Calvin Harris

Multi-award-winning DJ/producer Calvin Harris has had another momentous year, culminating in the imminent release of his new album '18 Months' that features a veritable who's who of modern pop music.

The album features tracks with Rihanna, Kelis, Ne-Yo, Florence Welch, Dizzee Rascal, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah and Example and he's backed up his massive chart success with a number of high-profile DJ shows from Creamfields to Coachella, Tokyo to T In The Park. Several tracks from the album have already been released, such as 'We Found Love' featuring Rihanna and 'Bounce' with Kelis, and Calvin has already notched up 15 million single sales from this album alone - four million in the UK. 'Sweet Nothing' with Florence Welch will be the sixth single from the album, the follow-up to 2009's breakthrough long-player 'Ready For The Weekend'.

His last four singles have peaked at No.2. A Calvin Harris show now exclusively features him DJing - he has given up singing live.

He first made his name singing on his own productions such as 'Acceptable In The 80s', but - as well as being adept at rocking crowds himself - he's developed into one of the go-to producers for big American urban artists wanting some big electro riff EDM action.
