There has been a whole slew of fun dance/rock/disco bands coming out in the last few years, like Daft Punk, LCD Soundsystem, Justice and Simian Mobile Disco, but my current fave of the bunch is 23 year old Calvin Harris from the UK. His mix of juicy slabs of funk and goofy falsetto lyrics on his new release, I Created Disco, (out here in Sept.) is simply irresistable. And in an absolutele genius marketing/promotional move, he's asked his UK fans to stage simultaneuos house parties on Aug. 18th, the night of his single release. Apparently Calvin himself is going to make the house party crawl and award the winner of the best party some cash and a live performance- sounds fun! Check out the video for Merrymaking.
