Editorial Reviews

2007 debut album from Scottish Electronic artist Calvin Harris. The album, a mix of Electro infused dance tracks and sees Harris take influence from the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk and in particular, early '80s Electro. 14 tracks including the singles 'Acceptable In The 80s' and 'The Girls'. RCA.

Customer Reviews

I get all the girls!!!
Terence Bass
Complete with retro hooks, bleeps and the yesteryear glitz, Harris cleverly wraps them in electronic music to give them a somewhat familiar yet futuristic sound.

I streamed this so much for free online, that I decided to buy it and be able to transfer to ipod and CD.

"I created disco" is the debut from Scottish dance singer/producer Calvin Harris. The album has already had two big hits in the UK; the nostalgic "Acceptable in the 80s" (#10) and the ode to all types of girls worldwide, "The girls" (#3).

Its an album with an eighties sheen that shamelessly courts fans of Groove Armada, Daft Punk, and even LCD Soundsystem, but unlike other producer-turned-singers, he eschews guest vocalists and does the singing himself.

"Merry making at my place" has a groovy bassline, chorus sung in falsetto, and repetitive hedonistic lyrics. A clear standout which wouldn't sound out of place on a Groove Armada CD.

Title track "I created disco" is an instrumental (bar a few spoken words midway) with a fuzzy bassline, and loads of electronic effects. "Certified" is another instrumental with woozy effects. Brilliant!!

Other standouts are "Disco heat", the Giorgio Moroder-like "Electro man" (a relaxed vocal delivery over pulsing hypnotic synths and beats), and the lone ballad, the dreamy plodding instrumental "Love souvenir".

Harris has already been named as a possible producer for Kylie Minogue's new CD, so I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more from him.

You can't blame Calvin Harris for wanting to have a good time, and with I CREATED DISCO, he has his disco and eats it too. It's silly fun -- the funk bass and simple breaks of "Merrymaking At My Place" exemplify this or the slow groove of "Neon Rocks" -- but that's not to say that it's not catchy. And for the boast of creating disco, I'd say 80s electro would be more appropriate. "The Girls," an ode to the fairer sex, is doused in electro like it's cheap cologne, while "Acceptable in the 80s" is an ode to a whole decade. You could argue that the tracks are pretty much the same -- and they are -- but this is a drawback. But a fun drawback! Harris' disaffected lyrics seem pitch-perfect to echo the 80s ennui, even as the kick drum goes into a dancefloor frenzy on "Disco Heat." When Harris slows it down for "Love Souvenir," you have to admire the romance and the sleazy existing on the same plane. And the final track, "Electro Man," is just a blast of fun. Hey, why not?

If you're looking for some tunes to get you pumped up for a good time, this is your go-to album. Calvin Harris delivers a solid 14 tracks of high-energy techno pop that's catchy and fun, even if it's a bit repetitive after a while. Despite what some may see as this album's flaws--it's lack of variety, familiar synth sound, and very simple song structures--what redeems this album for me is that Calvin Harris doesn't seem to take himself too seriously. With obviously tongue-in-cheek songs like "Acceptable in the 80s" and "The Girls", Calvin Harris is shamelessly self-indulgent, and he knows it. The result of this indulgence is an album that really encourages the listener to let loose and have fun--and for the purpose it serves, the quality of the music is far and above most pop music that I've heard.

I first heard one of his songs on a Kia commercial then I came to Amazon to listen to some of the previews. I'm not a huge fan of electronic or techno music, but this album is really groovy and reminds me a little bit of the early sounds of the Neptunes.

Calvin Harris, red hot it-producer of the moment, comes up with his debut effort and draws influences from Daft Punk, The LCD Soundsystem, Kraftwerk and a whole lot of 80's music to create his own electroclash songs.

Complete with retro hooks, bleeps and the yesteryear glitz, Harris cleverly wraps them in electronic music to give them a somewhat familiar yet futuristic sound. Where some songs sound suspiciously ripoffs (title track) of Mylo, more original compositions like the inane The Girls, the retro Acceptable in the 80s and the fabulous party anthem Vegas are certainly accomplished tracks in their own right. Most of the tracks are accompanied by a male vocal (presumably his).

At age 23, Harris might not have created disco but has certainly created one of the better records of 2007.
