Usually I discover tracks and albums with a delay, sometimes very long. Just two weeks ago I’ve found this precoius. An album – a mixtape to be precise – made by Mike Volpe aka Clams Casino. He is a producer making music for MC’s such as Lil’ B and Soulya Boy. This is material which gathers his music without MC’c voices. And this instrumental sounds are just great. Not all tracks are so engaging and full of great tones and beats, but the whole effact is exeptional. You can find here samples from Adele, Bjork and Janele Monae mixed with great beat and given within a great flow. It’s an instrumental hip-hop, but deeply merged in electronica.
The entering “Motivation” and “All I Need” are just stunning. The second part of the album is not as good as the first – there is no as much “meat” and imagination in theese compositions, but still it’s really worth of a try. This album have been published free of charge (for streaming) and “Type” label released it on vinyl (all copies have been sold, so You must look on E-bay).
It’s gonna be on my “best of the year list” this year. Below “All I Need” and a whole album.
