RIYL: Candied Yams & Clammy Clams
Label: Columbia / The HYV
Mike Volpe, better known as Clams Casino, isn’t just the go-to producer for hip hop artists in need of lush, atmospheric beats. Â He’s also quite choice for fans of electronic music, downtempo, ambient and even chillwave. Â His best tracks have filled dance floors and soundtracked films alike, and news of an actual album have been migrating through online forums and social media sites for years. Â Now, after 3 successful mixtapes (Instrumentals 1-3), his first album is a reality.
Even if you’re not a fan of some of his collaborators, you can’t deny his instrumentals. Â They’ve pushed the hip hop genre to new heights and inspired many electronic musicians to do the same. Â The limited variants of his Instrumentals mixtapes sell for quite a bit on the secondary market, so I’d snatch up this white wax quick before eBay or Discogs is your only option. Â The first disc will be the full album and the second disc will be the instrumentals. Â Don’t give me that ‘It’s too expensive’ excuse. Â Just DO IT.
