Calvin Harris shared a short video of himself on Twitter showing how he made the instrumental for his latest single, "Slide," which features Frank Ocean and Migos. Impressively in-depth for what's essentially a 2 minute and 15 second how-to video, the clip features Harris playing and layering live piano, guitars, keyboards, and synths to create the beat.


Towards the end of the video, Harris treats viewers to a rare bit of Frank Ocean's layered a capellas for the song, which sound predictably breathtaking. Check out the full clip below.
