Editors’ Notes Even Calvin Harris might not recognize the Calvin Harris of this debut; the Scottish DJ bears little resemblance here to the EDM superstar he became. Rather, I Created Disco is the work of an artist in the mold of LCD Soundsystem: ragged, cheeky, and deceptively lo-fi. More akin to Devo than Diplo, the album is a beautiful mess of analog beats and vintage synths. "Colours" features a cheeky Harris singing over an 8-bit disco groove, while "Love Souvenir" is a chirping experimental slow jam. Disco's willful tackiness is part of its charm, as in the macho braggadocio and roller-rink beats of "The Girls." Harris' artistry is in evidence, but the signature EDM sound of songs like "Feel So Close" had yet to coalesce.
