Review of Outside by Calvin Harris ft Ellie Goulding
I’m a HUGE fan of Calvin Harris and his work. I think his production on tracks is incredible and it shows how talented he is. There’s not really a song of his that i haven’t liked in a while. I mean really what is there to dislike when he includes every ingredient needed for an incredible hit. This includes a great beat and production, a killer hook and of course not forgetting a huge artist collaboration.
When his upcoming single Outside Ft Ellie Goulding landed in my mail box I knew this one was a must for me to review and listen to. I’ve actually seen him live a few times and he is just as incredible. The set usually full of flashing lights and huge speakers and you can just about see him in the DJ booth.
To have someone like Ellie Goulding feature on the track was a great move too as her career is going from strength to strength and this is a huge move and look for both of them. The track as a slow start, not in a bad way, but it’s a simple beat and soft lyrics and sound and then of course the typical Calvin Harris style kicks in with the upbeat side if things and a few more beats in the mix. The way Ellie sounds over the track is soft and compliments the track completely.
On listening to the track a few times I caught my self singing along to it as it has such a catchy beat. I love the sound of Ellie‘s voice and a feel when people will listen to the track they will relate to the song as even though it is a dance type song it has meaningful lyrics to it.
I will definitely be adding Outside by Calvin Harris to the playlist on release.
