You'd be hard pressed to find a better soundtrack to your summer in the city than this set of instrumental tracks by Clams Casino. There is a lot of buzz around this young producer, named after a Rhode Island dish rather than a gambling seashell, whose beats have been rhymed over by the like of Lil B' and Mobb Deep. However, his ethereal, yet gritty instrumentals deserve a chance to shine lyricless, as they are masterpieces in their own right. Of particular interest is his random sampling technique (he allegedly types random words into Limewire and samples the first 10 songs that appear from the search result). Watch out for Clams Casino when he releases his first record on TriAngle in the near future. Until then this brilliant and absolutely free mixtape (essentially an unsigned full album) will have to do.
