Bubblin' Up: Clams Casino
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Who: Clams Casino
Where: Nutley, New Jersey
Twenty-three-year-old otherworldly hip-hop producer Michael Volpe makes beats for fun, but actually spends most of his waking hours interning full-time at a local hospital. Yet that hasn't stopped the bedroom auteur from previously lending his eerily melodic and charmingly lo-fi creations to high-profile MCs such as Lil B and Soulja Boy. On the strength of a free, self-released instrumental mixtape—not to mention a litany of other online giveaways from the prolific beatmaker—Volpe has been added to the Tri Angle artist stable. The label will drop the Rainforest EP, Clams Casino's first official release, on June 27.
