The UK dance superstar Calvin Harris first made a real mark with “Dance Wiv Me,” his extremely catchy 2008 collaboration with the grime superstar Dizzee Rascal. That was Dizzee’s first huge hit, too — a UK #1 for an artist who’d only sniffed the top 10 up until then. And so it’s cool to see that the newly single Harris has teamed up with Dizzee once again, this time for a new track called “Hype.” It’s a big, loud, honking EDM banger. And given recent events, I have a feeling that the UK might not be in the mood for a party anthem like this one this morning. In any case, you can listen to it below.
“Hype” is out now at iTunes.
