Rising: Clams Casino (Mike Volpe)

"Clams Casino" is the musical guise of Nutley, New Jersey's very own Mike Volpe. The up-and-coming 23-year old beatsmith has already laced Lil B#BASEDGOD, Deezy D, Soulja Boy, The Jealous Guys, G-side, Squadda B (Green Ova), and Havoc/Mobb Deep with proper backing tracks... In addition to giving XV and Big Pun the remix treatment.
Having recently re-released a mixtape of "diluted rhythms" (instrumentals), Volpe is prepping his [major] label debut - The Rainforest 12" EP on Tri Angle, June 27th. Directed by Jamie Harley, a recycled David Copperfield magic/stunt performance clip serves as the music video for EP single, "Gorilla."
Clams Casino (Mike Volpe) recently did 2 LEGIT interviews with Pitchfork and Village Voice - Check those out here and here, respectively... And while you're at it, Follow @clammyclams on Twitter.

Interesting sample sources: Janelle Monáe ("Cold War"), Imogen Heap ("I'm God"), Björk ("Illest Alive"), Adele ("Realest Alive"), Guy ("Untitled"/Track 13).

  1. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email:
