ALLIANCE PRESENTS CALVIN HARRIS + BURNS
Alliance Presents: Calvin Harris + BURNS
6th of January 2012
Kicks Entertainment are excited to announce the return of Calvin Harris to Canberra this January for Alliance at Academy.
King of electropop Calvin Harris is one of the few artists who has successfully bridged the gap between chart hits and all out club bangers.
He created disco with his 2007 gold-selling debut 'I Created Disco' shook up the drab dance music scene in the UK and injected it with a much-needed dose of fun. “Acceptable in the 80's” shot him to the forefront of the scene and since then it seems the only way has been up, with a continuous barrage of award nominations and top 10 singles making him one of the most talked about artists of recent years.
Calvin Harris preformed at last years sold out Foreshore Festival and was one of the most memorable sets of the day. It’s of no surprise when you think about, with all the huge anthems he has released such as; ‘Bounce’, ‘Not Alone’, ‘You Used To Hold Me’, ‘Acceptable In The 80’s’, ‘Feel So Close' and more!
Making number one collaborations with Dizzie Rascal and more recently Rihanna, as well as writing and producing records for other recording artists including Kylie Minogue's, has only helped to cement his place at the top.
Put simply, he knows how to make a crowd move.
Scottish DJ/Producer Burns is coming down under with Calvin Harris this January. With a growing list of official work and a newly released 3rd EP, of his 4 EP Installation dubbed“Teknique”. Burns has been hard at work, and we’ll be seeing quite a bit more him in the near future.
The past couple years he’s seemingly gotten an increasing amount of exposure, picked up some great gigs, not to mention remix duties for the likes Kasabian, Empire Of The Sun, Late of The Pier, Passion Pit, Filthy Dukes, Yuksek, Gossip, and Calvin Harris (who even named a song after Burns on his #1 UK Album).
The last two Alliance events, Flo Rida and Havana Brown have both sold out well in advance. Make sure you purchase your pre-sale ticket from Moshtix so you don’t miss out on Calvin Harris and Burns at Academy this January!
