Calvin Harris Brings Back Some 808 With Release Of “Slow Acid”

Slow Acid Calvin Harris

Earlier this year in April, Calvin Harris jumped aboard the progressive-house train and released “Summer.” It was a wonderful addition to our warm, sunny days and “Summer” went on to be one of the most played songs on the radio. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the Calvin Harris we know and love. We know Calvin Harris as the man who created disco – his single “Acceptable In The 80’s” sky-rocketed Calvin Harris’ music career in the United Kingdom and landed him on the #10 position on the UK singles chart. He was original – producing funky, out-right bizarre creations and had even weirder music videos to accompany them. We were a bit disappointed when the  release of “Summer” sounded like every other progressive track on the radio, and thought “there goes another one.”

Fast forward to this week, and we get an amazing surprise with the release of Harris’ “Slow Acid.” Calvin Harris abandons the progressive-house norm, and crafts a grunge-warped, acid-house track that reminds us of Daft Punk and Gesaffelstein. Harris has teamed up with with Emil Nava to direct the bizarre visuals that  follows a silver-painted woman engaging in questionable activities. (She also does some cool alien dancing) The video is bizarre as it is intriguing, and makes a kick-ass visual to accompany “Slow Acid.”
