Hospitality company Hakkasan Group has announced a three-year partnership with award winning DJ and recording artist Calvin Harris.

Hakkasan says the partnership is "the latest phase of an ambitious global investment strategy by Hakkasan Group to drive rapid growth while maintaining world-class experiences for its guests".

The collaboration will involve Harris working across Hakkasan Group's portfolio of brands. In particular, Harris has agreed to play exclusively at Hakkasan Group venues in Las Vegas for the next three years as well as to work collaboratively with Hakkasan Group to create unique experiences for its guests.

In addition to his residency deals, Harris will act as a music consultant for the group's Hakkasan brand, "refining and curating its global sound as it moves from restaurants and nightclubs into the hotel space".

Recent investments also include the formation of a new hotel management company, MGM Hakkasan Hospitality, with MGM Resorts International. As part of this joint venture Hakkasan is building a 200 room boutique hotel on the Palm in Dubai.

Neil Moffitt, CEO of Hakkasan Group, said: "Calvin Harris' dedication, passion and creativity echo Hakkasan Group's approach to business so it's the perfect partnership for us. I have been involved in electronic music for many years now, so on a personal level it is hugely exciting to work with the leading international DJ talents. On a professional level, today's announcement is important in what it says about our group: that we are committed to creating unbeatable experiences for our guests."

Calvin Harris said: "Hakkasan Group's heritage in part goes right back to the '90s golden era of dance music and I am excited to be able to play a part in this next chapter of its story. Its venues are some of the best in the world for dance music and the opportunity to be part of the wider group as it develops into other markets and sectors is a really exciting prospect for me as an artist. We have some great ideas up our sleeves."
