Leading the charge were his major smashes "We Found Love" for Rihanna and his own productions "Bounce" with Kelis and "Feel So Close," which has now gone Platinum. Harris' newest track "Let's Go" featuring Ne-Yo-propelled by Harris' synths paired with Ne-Yo's vocals-is a high-energy electro-house track destined to become a summer anthem. Live, Harris is a major festival act having dazzled audiences at Coachella and Electric Daisy Carnival NYC with his stellar DJ sets.
