Calvin Harris is a [[UsefulNotes/{{Scotland}} Scottish]] DJ and record producer. He first grew his interest of electronic dance music at a young age and began to record his first demos in his bedroom as a teenager. A couple of demos he posted on {{Myspace}} won him a major label deal in the mid-2000s, and he has since become a big name on the dance music scene. Calvin is known for his energetic, fizzy sounding electronic-dance music and a low, untrained voice that he utilizes on his tracks.

Calvin Harris’ discography:
* ''[[BlatantLies I Created Disco]]'' (2007)
* ''Ready for the Weekend'' (2009)
* ''18 Months'' (2012)

!! Calvin Harris provide examples of:
* ADogAteMyHomework: To buy himself more time to work on his second album, he told his label that he lost the laptop containing his new songs at Heathrow Airport in London.
* AlbumTitleDrop: “I put on my shoes and I’m '''ready for the weekend'''.
* AllStarCast: ''18 Months'', which has a lot of notable British and other European singers on the tracks, along with a couple of Americans.
* AntiLoveSong: "Sweet Nothing".
* BoastfulRap: Not quite rapping, but Calvin does boast about how he gets all “The Girls” in one particular track.
* BritishAccents: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vd69gYRqPzs His Scottish accent]] is quite sexy.
* TheCoverChangesTheGender: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbYJSKHuTyo Dragonette’s cover of “The Girls”.]]
** It even includes a funny nod to the original, in which frontwoman Martina Sorbara notes that she likes “those scrawny, Scottish into pop music but not like sorta like pop dance electro music” boys.
* CreatorCameo: He appears as a DJ in {{Rihanna}}'s "{{Music/We Found Love}}" video.
* ElectronicMusic: Has emerged to the forefront of the recent 'EDM' scene, alongside DavidGuetta and {{Skrillex}}.
* FollowTheLeader: Ever since “I’m Not Alone” was released to success in the UK, it seems like a number of other songs have utilized a similar-sounding (if not the same exact) synth chord progression. “Yeah 3x” by ChrisBrown, "Eyes Wide Shut" by JLS, and “You Make Me Feel…” by Music/CobraStarship are just a few.
** “The Rain” features a notable saxophone sample. In 2011, the saxophone seemed to have become “hip” again, as heard in songs like “The Edge of Glory” and “Hair” by Music/LadyGaga, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” by KatyPerry, “In the Dark” by Dev, and “Mr. Saxobeat” by Alexandra Stan, which were all, curiously enough, released within months of each other.
* InDaClub: "Drinking From the Bottle". The music video of "Sweet Nothing" shows a more subdued strip club.
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: His pair of blinged-out sunglasses with a similar level of functionality to shutter shades; they've appeared on the covers of his first two albums, though he's seemed to have dropped it as of ''18 Months''.
* NonAppearingTitle: “The Rain”, “Burns Night, “5iliconeator”
* RecordProducer: He has most notably produced tracks for Music/KylieMinogue (“Heart Beat Rock”, “In My Arms”, “Cupid Boy”), Music/SophieEllisBextor (“Off & On”) Dizzee Rascal (“Holiday” and “Dance Wiv Me”). He also produced {{Rihanna}}'s hit singles "{{Music/We Found Love}}" and "Where Have You Been", with the former becoming one of her biggest hits ever and her longest-reigning #1 single to date.
* UsefulNotes/{{Scotland}}
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: He remixed Music/FlorenceAndTheMachine's "Spectrum" to ''great'' success in the UK, becoming the latter's first #1 single in the country. Florence herself later returned the favor, lending her voice to his own "Sweet Nothing".
* TitleOnlyChorus: “You Used to Hold Me”
