One of the most promising producers to enter the game recently is also the most unassuming. 24 year-old Mike Volpe—better known as Clams Casino—has been producing out of his mom’s basement and had his music blow up online. All the while, he’s still been pursuing a degree in physical therapy.
His lo-fi, ethereal, and experimental soundscapes have become synonymous with “based” music as he got his breakthrough producing some of Lil B’s biggest and best songs—notably “I’m God” and “Motivation.” However, Clams has branched out and released his fantastic instrumental EP, Rainforest, on Tri Angle Records. We can’t front, we started listening to dude because of Lil B. Thank you Based God?
