Calvin Harris EDM
EDM has been sad, slow songs for years now. Doesn’t have anything in common with the music I love to make. 2010-2014 edm was more house influenced to me. Anyway now I’m out the bubble and making big records with amazing singers that sound like house music to me… 🤷🏼♂️ https://t.co/D3UQc8vWFx

In the minds of many, Calvin really hits the nail on the head here. The downtempo EDM that has been taking the world by storm has, in a sense, created a sense of the same sound being repeated over and over again. Pushing for a pop feel with slower drops and more downtempo feel. The years 2010-2014, which Calvin mentions, were years in which we were brought some of the most timeless tracks in Electronic Music History and is viewed at the birth point of EDM. In the current state, we are happy to see Calvin doing what he loves and delivering a different sound outside of what we now know as “the norm”. Also, great to see Calvin interracting on Twitter. Love hearing the point of view of a World Class music mind like his.
