Calvin Harris effects nu-disco bliss with remix of Halsey’s ‘Alone’
Calvin Harris is back, and as his stream of steady releases suggests, he’s better than ever.
Harris nestled back into 128 BPM territory on his recent, house oriented Dua Lipa collab, “One Kiss.” Before that, Harris extended the 70s inflected character of Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 to his “Funk Wav” remix of SZA’s “The Weekend.” The latest production to come out of Harris’ studio is the producer’s engrossing take on Halsey’s “Alone.” The song originally appeared on Halsey’s 2017 album, hopeless fountain kingdom.
Harris’ revamp exudes a confidence that, when coupled with the remix’s synth instituted groove and nu-disco vibes, underscores the song to be another strong showing from Harris.
