Want to catch a glimpse into the mind of one of the best pop producers of our time? Look no further, as Scottish hit wizard Calvin Harris graciously shared two minutes and thirteen seconds of his process creating “Slide,” a certifiable summer banger featuring none other than Frank Ocean and Migos. We love it so much, it was one of our Best Tracks of February.
Calvin Harris managed to take time out of his busy pop producer schedule to record a video for Twitter, breaking down each part of the sun-drenched, 80s new wave-influenced perfection that is “Slide.” Check him out recording each catchy riff on the piano, guitar and crazy synths, and listen to Frank Ocean’s flawless isolated vocal takes below.
