Calvin Harris has announced that he will retire from DJing once he reaches 50 years old.

The accomplished producer and DJ, who celebrated his 40th birthday in January, plans to shift his focus to creating music instead of performing.

He told UK radio station Capital Dance: “I always said that once I get past 50, I can’t see me DJing, man.”

When host MistaJam pointed out that British DJ Carl Cox is still doing live performances at 61, Calvin said: “It’s a certain type of DJing. On the more commercial end, it gets a wee bit… a little bit suspect.”

And, Calvin Harris would prefer to stay out of the spotlight once he hits 50.

He said: “I think I’d prefer to be in the studio making tunes, like ghost producers. I think that’s where the majority of my talent lies, is making songs sound good. So, I would like to make other people’s records sound good.”

He also revealed he plans to work more on producing for other artists in the next few years, saying: “42, 43 — something like that.”
