We probably could’ve seen this move coming.
Soon after releasing “Slide” with Frank Ocean and Migos — what has turned out to be one of the best songs this year — Calvin Harris, who is probably the wealthiest DJ ever, showed the world exactly how he made the infectious, funky disco beat.
While the production was different than anything Harris got worldly popular off, it was a return to his funk roots and was the basis for his new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 — a 10-track re-introduction to Harris’ production talents, an album that features the likes of Young Thug, Big Sean, Pharrell, ScHoolboy Q and tons of others.
Just a week after releasing the album (which is very, very good), Harris has released all the instrumentals to the songs, helping you appreciate their layers just a smidgen more without the vocals.
With this, along with some songs on the new Toro y Moi album, you’ve got a ton of incredible production work to listen to this weekend.
