EDM king Calvin Harris dropped one of the year’s hottest tracks “Slide” back in February. The track, which was teased several times by the artist leading up to its release, features swooner Frank Ocean and Offset of Migos. To give fans a closer look on the process of how he created the track, Harris posted a video to his Twitter account showing off how he made the beat and instrumentals, including the DJ playing piano, guitar, keyboard, synths and how he layered it all together. The highlight of the video includes pieces of Frank Ocean’s acapellas. Watch the clip below.

Ocean also dropped the surprise track “Chanel” during an episode of his BLONDED Radio last week.
