This record is becoming a new favorite for every music lover out there.Recently, he sat down with Zane Lowe for a Beats 1 interview where he spoke about his opinion on festival and money.
Speaking about performing in Vegas, Calvin said:
“All that stuff got a little bit too impersonal. Standing up there and it’s the fireworks and all that stuff, but you’ve got no connection with anyone. And that’s why I actually love playing Vegas at the moment because I get to see people’s faces and get to see people enjoy their night. Those big festival shows which I wasn’t getting into personally other than a bit of money and money is, you know, the root of all evil.”
Speaking about his collaboration with PartyNextDoor ‘Nuh Ready Nuh Ready’, Calvin said:
“I want to spend more time in studio and it’s been that way for a couple of years. I haven’t done any meaningful festivals for years. Almost did one but I didn’t announce it because that’s the sort of guy I am. And also because I really might want to go back. I thought he was a genius for a few years. The thing is, I feel now more than ever, if you don’t come out acting like a genius then you don’t get called a genius. And because he’s to the outside a very reserved and very like just off limits, you don’t know what he is; you don’t know what he’s like.”
Calvin Harris is not the only one who spoke about his dislike for the current state of EDM scene. There are many producers & DJs who share the same opinion. With Calvin’s interview, it is pretty clear that Calvin has big goals in his mind for the coming years.
