Adam Richard Wiles (born 17 January 1984), known professionally as Calvin Harris, is a Scottish DJ, singer, songwriter, record producer, recording artist and remixer. His debut album, I Created Disco, was released in 2007 and was the precursor to his top-10 singles “Acceptable in the 80s” and “The Girls”. In 2009, Harris released his second studio album, Ready for the Weekend, which debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and earned a gold certification from the British Phonographic Industry within two months of release. Its lead single, “I’m Not Alone”, became his first number one on the UK Singles Chart.
On 17 July 2015, Harris and London-based production trio Disciples released the single “How Deep Is Your Love”. The song peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, giving Harris his 19th top-10 hit in the UK. It peaked at number one on the ARIA Charts, giving Harris his first chart-topper in Australia. The song peaked at number three on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs in the US and marked Harris’s eighth top ten hit since the chart’s launch, making it the most of any act. In September, Harris was featured on Dillon Francis’s EP This Mixtape Is Fire, collaborating on a Moombahton style track entitled “What’s Your Name”. For the 2016 Brit Awards, Harris received three nominations; Best British Male Solo Artist, and “How Deep Is Your Love” for British Single of the Year and Best British Video.
