Anonymous reviewer feels his wrath

Scottish dance producer Calvin Harris has written a strongly worded dismissal of a review of his new album 'Ready For The Weekend'.

Emerging from the Scottish borders, Calvin Harris cut his teeth with a number of well regarded house discs before discovering his pop nous. Releasing hit after hit, the producer struck gold with his filthy blend of electro.

The producer teamed up with Dizzee Rascal for last year's smash hit 'Dance Wiv Me'. Defining the summer, Calvin Harris returned earlier this year with the rave-tastic new single 'I'm Not Alone'.

However all that success hasn't prevented the producer from losing his rag with the critics. Calvin Harris is due to release his new album 'Ready For The Weekend' later this summer, but the record has received split reviews.

Writing on his Twitter account Calvin Harris took aim at a particularly irksome review.

"Rich people's kids getting good reviews because mummy fucked the journo in the '80s," suggested Harris. "Fuck the rich people's kids with their jobs as runners on TV shows of their 'club nights'. Fuck you, you've done nothing. Absolutely fuck-all."

"I can't ignore it, sorry, but it does affect me, and it is hurtful, and I know that it's exactly what I wanted it to be, and I'm proud of it."

"Imagine you just spent two years of your life making a record. On your own. Every single day, long hours, working to get it sounding right."

"Imagine the buzz of making something that you love, and after two years you finally have something you can't wait for other people to hear. Then imagine that CD landing on the desk of 'Snide Rich Person's Kid' or 'Pathetic London Scene-Face'. Then them skipping through the tracks in their lunch break, and saying, "Well it's Calvin Harris isn't it? Two stars, he's a dickhead."

It's not known which review Calvin Harris is referring to, although many have suggested that the rant was caused by Guardian writer Alexis Petridis who gave the new album only two stars out of five.
