Calvin Harris: 'Making pop music is easier than making a ham sandwich'

By
Calvin Harris has admitted that he finds it easier making good pop music than he does making a perfect ham sandwich.

The DJ revealed that creating songs comes naturally to him and explained that growing up in Britain has taught him to add depth to his material.

Asked if making music is easier than making a ham sandwich, Harris told The Guardian: "It's incredibly easy to do, but hard to do perfectly.

"I'd struggle to make a perfect ham sandwich because I never make them, whereas pop music comes naturally to me - it's what I do every day."

Responding to the suggestion that growing up in the UK helps artists produce good music, he added: "In Britain you know there are people waiting to tear your stuff apart, so it's important for me to know that my music has subtleties and depth to it.

"If anyone slags it off then they obviously haven't picked up on those things. Growing up around British music you realise how much depth there is to it… my stuff is different to the likes of Pitbull for that reason."

Harris will release Tinie Tempah collaboration 'Drinking from the Bottle' on January 28, 2013 as the latest single to be lifted from his album 18 Months.
