Calvin Harris >> puts on a pretty epic performance every time I see him and this weekend in Las Vegas was certainly no different. Wet Republic at MGM went the fuck off on Saturday afternoon because Calvin brought it hard. That mixed with a grip of pool partiers, Vegas visitors and house heads alike made for a dope event.
Over the last few years, Calvin Harris has just been adding sickness to his repertoire of bangers galore like 'Outside' and 'Sweet Nothing' so every time he dropped such tracks during his 2-hour set, everyone poolside went fucking nuts! The weather was unusually like London instead of Las Vegas but 1,600 peeps gave zero fucks about the climate and we raged to the max.

Vegas pool parties are very different than from when I was a fresh out college grad with young money and in most ways it's better because I see that the music I had to bring to Vegas on my 1st generation iPod Nano is now the standard at every place worth spending your time and money.
Sure, there's some amateur garbage artists and many a clown in the industry who get residency here and probably make as much money as Tom Brady. But net net the truly talented dudes that deserve the big stage and bad bitches are getting theirs now. Big ups to Calvin for checking the box on both these accolades and thanks for blessing the earways at a dope dope pool party.
