Highlights have included a Rihanna partnership, a DJ residency at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand, where his visage covered several floors of the hotel, and a prime position atop a wave of all-conquering EDM while simultaneously modeling Armani Y-fronts. He became to the clubbing world what Jason Statham is to Hollywood blockbusters: chameleon enough to turn his hand to the latest franchise (in Harris’ case, drop-laden rave anthems, sexy deep house numbers, etc.), and happy to carry the action from the background. But by the laws of party-pill physics, what goes up must come down. So what happens when the host gets a hunch that the lights are about to come on, leaving the dancefloor empty?

All business, he hedges his bets on his fifth album, making savvily risk-averse decisions. Having proven his mettle as the one-man Brill Building of doof-doof hits, he’s forgone investing wads of energy into radio-ready house smashes. Instead, he provides post-disco mood lighting for a guestlist of pop and R&B singers and rap MCs already stalking the charts on their own merits: Future, Migos, Katy Perry, and Ariana Grande, to name a few. Bearing a ludicrous title whose sketchbook-like connotations are at odds with the music's supreme polish, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 invites them under one roof for a sundown-to-sunrise evening of 1980s-inspired boogie.

At its most successful, the album has already proven itself a sturdy soundtrack to the summer of 2017, via a series of singles in which Harris fully soaks up the laid-back vibes of his adopted home of Los Angeles. The reggae-tinged “Feels” is a tropical jammer ripe for a Malibu barbecue, whereas the piano-gliding “Slide” sets the scene for a breezy sunset drive down the Pacific Coast Highway, and the G-Funk-leaning “Rollin” takes the after-party to the skating rink. At its worst, it amounts to expensively made elevator music—a simpler cousin to Daft Punk’s more efficiently crafted Random Access Memories. The Nicki Minaj-featuring “Skrt on Me,” for example, employs a dancehall rhythm so phoned-in it sounds like QVC background music"
