You’d be hard pressed to find a more hyped collaboration than ‘Slide’ by Calvin Harris Ft. Frank Ocean & Migos. After weeks of teasing the track on his Snapchat, Harris finally dropped the single late last month. While Frank Ocean’s baby-angel vocals alone could make any track a hit, mega DJ-producer Calvin Harris never fails to expertly manipulate sound to create those blissed out vibes that dancers crave.
In a competitive scene, full of up-and-coming artists, it’s incredibly special when a producer gives fans a sneak preview into how they created the beats we love so much. Calvin Harris just tweeted a short video which breaks down how he recorded each instrumental piece and edited them to establish the build up for ‘Slide.’ Anyone who says DJs are not musicians, see here. Check out the video below!
