Eden Sessions 2010: Calvin Harris & Audio Bullys

Calvin Harris and Audio Bullys are announced as the 4th act to play Eden Sessions

Electropop star Calvin Harris and dance heroes Audio Bullys are the latest top names announced for this summer's Eden Sessions 2010.

The show will take place at the home of the iconic Biomes on Saturday July 3.

Calvin started making music on an Amiga computer while working as a shelf-stacker at Marks & Spencer in Dumfries.

He is now one of the most exciting and successful UK dance artists and has recently announced plans to launch his own record label.

Calvin's two solo albums - I Created Disco and the UK number one Ready for the Weekend - have featured the singles Acceptable in the 80s, The Girls, chart-topper I'm Not Alone as well as the title track from his second record.

Complementing this, Calvin has successfully worked on a number of high-profile collaborations, including Dance Wiv Me with BRIT-winning Dizzee Rascall, a song that was named Best Dancefloor Filler at last year's NME Awards. Calvin was also nominated in the British Male Solo Artist category at this year's BRITs.

He produced the Kylie Minogue single In My Arms as well as another track from her X album and is also a noted remixer, having worked on tunes by fellow Eden Sessions headliner Mika, Katy Perry, Shakira and Kaiser Chiefs (who played the Sessions two years ago), among many others.

Audio Bullys, also known as Simon Franks and Tom Dinsdale, released their 2003 debut Ego War to huge acclaim and a top 20 chart position and followed it in 2005 with Generation. The latter featured probably their most famous tune to date - the Nancy Sinatra-sampling Shot You Down, which hit number 3 in the UK singles chart.

Audio Bullys are set for a return to the big time this summer following the release of their third album, Higher Than the Eiffel

Following a hiatus, Audio Bullys will be releasing their long-anticipated third album Higher Than the Eiffel at the end of this month, promising a fresh sound and an exciting live show to accompany it.

Tjarko Wieringa, Eden Sessions Creative Director, said: "We're really excited to be able to bring two of the most vibrant dance acts around to the Eden Sessions.

"Calvin has been responsible for some of the best club tunes of the past few years and Audio Bullys are set for a return to the big time this summer following the release of their third album. With Jack Johnson, Mika, Doves and Mumford & Sons already on the bill, this addition bolsters an already fantastic line-up."

Tickets for the Calvin Harris and Audio Bullys Session go on sale to members of the Inside Track programme at 9am Wednesday March 10 and on general release at 6pm on Tuesday March 16. They are priced at £35 plus booking fee.
