Listen: Calvin Harris' "Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1"

Amidst all the new releases from Beach House, Baio, Cigarettes After Sex, Floating Points and Washed Out stands Calvin Harris' Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, a sonic effort that sees the Scottish DJ venturing into new territories, something of a shift from the kind of EDM bops that made him a household name. It's ridiculously feature-packed, and even if there is nothing quite like Slide and Rollin, the songs are catchy and fun, echoing a summery hip-hop vibe all throughout. Jessie Reyez-sung album closer Hard to Love in particular is a highlight, her voice beautifully complementing the dreamy, languid tune. Stream the album below (or via Spotify/ YouTube) -
