Calvin Harris takes us on a trippy techno route.
It’s pretty safe to say that Calvin Harris‘ album, Motion, is definitely going to list itself as one of the top dance albums this year. The 15-track album features some major hits including “Under Control,” “Summer,” and “Blame.”
However, the DJ/producer has smartly balanced out these radio friendly bangers with some songs that fans would not necessarily expect from him. Keeping his sound multi-dimensional, “Slow Acid” takes a trippy acidic techno route that cruises slightly below the speed limit. The cinematic music video accompanying the track sports both action and thriller elements, creating brilliant contrast in tone to his previous visual works such as “Summer.”
Stepping out of his usual sound, mainstream fans may not be able to step into a grove with this song immediately. Though, we are certain that it will grow on them after they’ve heard it a couple of times. It’s also lovely to see Calvin Harris take such risk in expanding his style in front of such a large demographic. His album, Motion, is slated for release on November 4th and can be pre-ordered here.
