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.  He’s also quite choice for fans of electronic music, downtempo, ambient and even chillwave.  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.  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.  They’ve pushed the hip hop genre to new heights and inspired many electronic musicians to do the same.  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.  The first disc will be the full album and the second disc will be the instrumentals.  Don’t give me that ‘It’s too expensive’ excuse.  Just DO IT.
