The Scottish DJ and producer currently has a residency in the Nevada city, at the Surrender Nightclub.
“I’m there a lot – I lay in the sun and watch people with their tits out,” he explained, adding that he’s been staying well away from the gaming tables. “I think it’s quite important if you’re there a lot to not be a gambler. I think I could lose a lot of money because I’d be shit at it.” So instead the star says he’s been “sitting in the sun and drinking fruity cocktails”.
When asked who was next in the running for a Calvin Harris collaboration – following his Kelis featuring hit ‘Bounce’ – he revealed that his next musical pairing was already in the bag, but that he couldn’t say which star he was working with, admitting that “I’ve already got loads done, but I’m not saying what anything is.” What he did say was that his new material will be “drip-fed”, with a single set for August.
Calvin Harris also talked about his previous two T In The Park appearances. “The first time (2007) was the best gig of that year. The second time (2009) was a bit weird, because I was on after Lady Gaga at about 1.30 in the afternoon. Very odd, and before that it was Bjorn Again. Bjorn Again, Lady Gaga and me. It was a weird time to play my sort of music.”
Calvin Harris headlined the King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent on the final night of the festival with a DJ set, promising to play “massive tunes that go off” before the show to NME.
