About Calvin Harris
Calvin Harris, the Scottish DJ, songwriter, producer and singer, will be collaborating in the making of HBO’s new comedy, “Higher,” which is planned to be set in the world of electronic music.
The half-hour series, which should be produced by Jay-Z and Will Smith, are being written by Harris and Irvine Welsh, a famed novelist and playwright. And while it is unknown yet exactly how will the show play out, it is a safe bet EDM fans will tune in to find out (especially since HBO is the same network which has already brought us “The Wire” and “Boardwalk Empire.”)
Of course you know Harris for his first debut album, known as “I Created Disco,” which was released back in 2007 going gold and spawned the hits “Acceptable in the 80s” and “The Girls.” His second album, titled “Ready for the Weekend,” has made it to No. 1 on the UK Chart in 2009 thanks to the chart-topping “I’m Not Alone,” and some other singles like “Flashback” and “You Used Me.”
Harris’ third studio album named “18 Months,” bowed in late 2012 and contained what would ultimately be eight single releases. He has also written as well as produced several tracks for some of music’s biggest names, including Rihanna, Cheryl Cole, Dizzee Rascal, Example and Kylie Minogue.
According to Forbes, in 2013 Harris was the highest paid DJ of the year, having an estimated $46 million. His official “Greater Than” Tour returns to the states in February 2014, with stops planned at Hakkasan in Las Vegas, and in April at the Coachella Festival in California.””
