Watch Calvin Harris "Acceptable In The '80s"

Watch the fantastic '80s inspired electro throwback "Acceptable In The '80s" by Scottish bedroom DJ/producer Calvin Harris. The gimmicky track is taken from his upcoming album "I Created Disco." Yeah, he's a little cocky but he has the muscial goods to back it up.

Initially inspired by bands like Nirvana and The Spin Doctors, Harris was first introduced to dance music by his brother right at the start of the European disco house craze. He had an obsessions with samples in house music because "every time, without fail, the original would be ten times better than the housed up abomination," he writes on his web site.

After a failed stint in London, Harris returned to Dumfries, Scotland where he continued to fidget with beats, bleeps, beeps and lots, lots of samples. Eventually, it were the clever folks of EMI who saw the potential of Harris inspired by the success of fellow Scotsmen Mylo and Linus Loves.

Stream more tracks on Harris' MySpace page and if you want to something on your MP3 player right now, you can get his current single "Rock Star" on iTunes.

Watch the video if you have a moment, it will put a smile on your face today.

Hey, if you like this, check out Neosupervital (www.neosupervital.com and www.myspace.com/neosupervital). He's an Irish artist, very 80s, released a pretty cool album last year, and has been supporting the Human League for the past few months as well.
And he's not me, by the way :)

Is this the guy who's now supposed to be working with Kylie on material for her new album?
