Culture Cow: Could Calvin Harris be the next Bruno Mars with ‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1’

Commentary by Devin McCue, Sumner Newscow — Happy Monday.

Calvin Harris, the man who is just one Bruno Mars collaboration away from making a billion dollars, has crowned himself “King of Summer Jams” with his latest and greatest release, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1.

Harris has collected a motley of talented voices including big names such as Katy Perry, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, Young Thug, and several more. But the real stars of this album are the upcoming and extremely talented artists like Khalid, Kehlani, and Jessie Reyez.  For those of you who wonder why a DJ can make his own album and claim every song on it even though he doesn’t sing it’s because there is so much more to a song than just the voice.

Calvin Harris chooses his singers because of the musicality of their voice and manipulates those voices to mesh seamlessly with his hypnotic beats, creating an incredible set of songs and an album that deserves to be left on a loop for the rest of the summer.  King Calvin has revolutionized the EDM genre and taken it from an adrenaline-fueled beat-storm to the next evolution of pop music.
