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)
* ''Motion'' (2014)

!! 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.
* {{Adorkable}}: Was this up until 18 Months.
* AlbumTitleDrop: “I put on my shoes and I’m '''ready for the weekend'''.
* AudienceParticipationSong: Whenever he's performing, Calvin will always ask the crowd to sing along to ''Feel So Close'', cutting the volume so that he can hear the audience. He has done similar antics with ''Sweet Nothing'', ''We Found Love'', and his remix of FatboySlim and Riva Starr's ''Eat Sleep Rave Repeat'' featuring Beardyman.
** The audience also loves to sing I Need Your Love and Under Control without Calvin's input.
* BoastfulRap: Not quite rapping, but Calvin does boast about how he gets all “The Girls” in one particular track.
** TinieTempah and Dizzee Rascal both provide very boastful raps on Drinking From the Bottle and Here 2 China respectively, rapping about drinking, drugs, ladies, and other things that entertain them.
*** Big Sean attempts to do this in Open Wide, but falls a little on it's face, due to Big Sean's horrible songwriting.
* BritishAccents: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vd69gYRqPzs His Scottish accent]] is quite sexy. Though it's slowly becoming more American as of Motion however.
* 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.
** Subverted in Dizzee Rascal's Holiday music video. Calvin was supposed to briefly appear as a dancer in the video, but ultimately decided to walk off the set due to being unable to wear his signature Fly Eyes during the video, besides being uncomfortable dancing. However, Calvin does show up in Dizzee Rascal's Dance Wiv Me music video as a bartender.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Calvin's earlier work was reminiscent of early disco pop, and he sang on almost all of his own tracks. Ready For The Weekend also consisted of him singing on a huge majority of his tracks, though this time with a more modern (at least for 2009) feel.
* ElectronicMusic: Has emerged to the forefront of the recent 'EDM' scene, alongside DavidGuetta and {{Skrillex}}.
* FadingIntoTheNextSong: Ready For The Weekend has The Rain fade into...well, [[AlbumTitleDrop Ready For The Weekend]].
** On ''18 Months'', Green Valley does a well-done transition into Bounce. Downplayed later in the album, when We'll Be Coming Back just ''barely'' fades into Mansion, and can be easily missed if the listener doesn't pay attention and/or doesn't have the volume up on a higher level.
* {{Fanservice}}: His music videos are chock of these, both male and female.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Calvin is very close with his good friend and head of Fly Eye publishing company Charlie Tadman. To the point where Calvin starts filming him constantly on Snapchat because what he does is ''crazy''. A similar relationship can be said with Mark Gillespie, Calvin's manager.
** In terms of collaborators, Calvin is constantly praising the work of John Newman, Dizzee Rascal, BURNS, R3hab, and Theo Hutchcraft of the group Hurts. Combined with their numerous collaborations together, this has lead to a close bond between all of them.
* HouseMusic: Despite mostly making dance hits, Calvin has made some very groovy instrumentals that could be considered this. Mansion, School, Awooga, and Slow Acid are some very prominent examples.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: At 6'5", he towers over many of his female collaborators. He was also a [[OneHeadTaller solid foot taller]] than his ex-girlfriend Music/RitaOra.
** In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Calvin mentions that he's so tall that he could legally become a ''giant'' if he grew any taller.
* InDaClub: "Drinking From the Bottle". The music video of "Sweet Nothing" shows a more subdued strip club. "Open Wide" also counts.
* 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''.
* MrFanservice: Calvin is the very ''definition'' of this trope, to the point where he's now the face of Armani. [[http://www.x17online.com/media/images//2015/02/calvin-harris-hot-underwear-021815.jpg Need proof?]]
* NonAppearingTitle
* RagsToRiches: Before he became a DJ, he worked at a fish factory and a poor-paying job stacking shelves in an old grocery store in Dumfries.
* 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}}: Where he's from.
* 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".
** A few tracks off of 18 Months have some instrumental tracks (Mansion, School, Awooga, and Green Valley) that are break off a bit from the generic dance formula Calvin usually sticks to.
** Calvin has two collaborations with American DJ/producer Dillon Francis, which also break off from his usual EDM formula. The first is Here 2 China (featuring Dizzee Rascal) produced for 18 Months, and What's Your Name, which was part of Dillon's EP entitled ''This Mixtape Is Fire''.
** Calvin's promotional singles Slow Acid and Mansion play with Music/AphexTwin style acid house, making the track quite popular with underground music listeners.
* SurrealMusicVideo: Played straight with ''Ready for the Weekend'', which has mirrors leading to other parts of the music video, Calvin jumping through holes in the floor that lead to different places, and is all-around just...bizarre.
** Happens during Slow Acid, where, a woman painted entirely in blue starts stretching around the screen and turning into the album artwork before turning back to normal. This is all ''before'' said woman takes some kind of drug, robs a store, and kills a middle aged man who tries to use her as a prostitute. Surreal indeed.
** Blame has several girls fall into separate bodies of water at a party they were at, who then all end up in some jungle in the middle of nowhere.
* TitleOnlyChorus: “You Used to Hold Me”
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: During his I Created Disco and Ready For The Weekend Days, Calvin kept his hair dyed jet-black, since he thought that his natural blonde hair didn't suit him. He later ditched the look during the early days of 18 Months however, and has kept it this way ever since.
