Calvin Harris says dance music has become about "popping bottles over cheap-sounding synth".
In a recent interview with CBC's 'Q' show, the DJ spoke about his hit 'Feel So Close' and how it is different from the majority of tracks being released at the moment.
"It's an emotional, almost an emo vocal. I can't remember the last time guitars were in dance music like that. Also, it's all real instruments. Nothing’s fake there: it's real music, real melody and actual emotion."
He then went on to make a general comment about the electronic music scene.
He says: "A lot of dance music now, it's about being in the club and popping bottles over this cheap-sounding synth that people can make so easily and get somebody else to mix. I'm not about that."
