Tube: London Bridge HES the man who created disco and gets all the girls (or so his songs say). So it should come as no surprise that Calvin Harris believes he has hit on the scientific formula for the perfect pop song -- although its unlikely to impress the team behind the Large Hadron Collider. I use the Mr Motivator approach, says the 25-year-old down the phone from Ibiza, where he has a summer residency at Pacha. You give it a lot of Put your hands in the air and Make some noise. It works because people always want to put their hands in the air and make some noise. The theory will be tested tonight at Somerset House, where Harris will be unveiling his second album. Ready For The Weekend, out next month, is another stupendous collection of robot pop, for getting ready for the weekend (which proves his literal approach). Is he wor- ried how it will go down on a Monday? No. Im excited about people hearing it, especially the naysayers. Harris has had two number ones since his 2007 hit, Acceptable In The 80s, saw many write him off as a novelty act. Hes worked with everyone from Kylie to Dizzee Rascal, and even turned down Lady GaGa (I just didnt like the song). Next up is Katy Perry. Shes got such a sexy, LA voice, I cant help f i n d i n g h e r, yo u k n ow, ve r y pleasant. So he fancies her? I wouldnt be that crass. Im a gentleman. With his trademark fly eye shades -- sunglasses pimped with Bubble Wrap -- Harris looks like the kind of person who youd expect to chillax, but, it turns out, this couldnt be fur- ther from the truth. The former shelf- stacker at Marks & Spencer doesnt drink, or do anything bad, ever, and gets his kicks from creativity. Man. I like work. I find it more fun and rewarding than getting smashed. So Ibiza isnt proving a source of, er, inspiration? I dont make club music, I make straightforward pop. As his former employer would have it, though, this is not just pop...
