Music Monday - Clams Casino!

Up and coming producer Clams Casino is the focus of Music Monday this week!

More commonly known as Clams Casino or Clammy Clams, Mike Volpe is an Italian-American electronic musician and hip hop producer from Nutley, New Jersey.

He started gaining recognition after contacting Lil B and sending him a variety of instrumentals which he utilised on many of his mixtapes.

His production often samples spacey female voices—such as Björk, Janelle Monáe, Adele, or Imogen Heap and has received acclaim from The Needle Drop and Pitchfork, the latter of which ranked his first mixtape, 'Instrumentals', as one of the top-50 records of 2011.

He has since gained further recognition because of his work for the likes of ASAP Rocky, Mac Miller, The Weeknd and XV amongst others and this week he released a collaboration track with underground hip hop legend DOOM titled 'Bookfiend' which you can check out below.

This looks set to be a big year for Clams Casino, with hopefully many more releases!
