Calvin Harris recently opened up in an interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1 Radio. The interview follows his newly released single with PartyNextDoor, which is titled “Nuh Ready, Nuh Ready,” which marks the beginning of a new sound for Harris.
Harris explains the reason for the shift in his music:
“I basically took a year off dance music when I did all the Funk stuff. I thought I didn’t like it anymore… I was like wait, wait, wait. So actually, some of the best producers in the world are EDM producers, even though they got shit on by everybody, the critics and cool music lovers. I’m sorry, but some of the best producers in the world are EDM and some of the best producers are Dutch.”
As for festivals and smaller shows, Harris explains why he doesn’t like festivals so much:
“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.”
