Biografie

There are a thousand reasons, and stories, behind a stage name. Some of them extremely original, others could do with a bit more imagination and you have those stories that when you here them you go “oh… that’s a bit disappointing”. The story behind Calvin Harris’ name is none of those things. When Adam Richard Wiles released his first track in 2007 it was more a soul track than the pumping electro house he conjures up today. He needed a racially ambiguous name, and came up with Calvin Harris. The name has since then stuck, and its now a global phenomenon. His first album in 2007 ‘I Created Disco’ contained 2 top ten singles in the UK charts, but it was when he released his second album ‘Ready for the Weekend’ that his career skyrocketed, reaching number 1 on the UK album chart. Since then, there is probably not one EDM lover who doesn’t know at least one chorus to one of his songs. Having created monster hits like ‘Bounce’, ‘Sweet Nothing’ and ‘I need your love’ and hit collaborations such as Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’. He has furthermore worked alongside fellow DJs such as Nicky Romero, Groove Armada, Deadmau5 and Skrillex. His international stardom resulted in worldwide performances, and in 2013 an exclusive 20 month residency at Las Vegas’ Hakkasan.
