Clams Casino’s Instrumentals mixtape will be released on vinyl by Type

Massachusetts label will release woozy rap genius Clams Casino's famous free mixtape on lush vinyl, because they are a good record label.

New Jersey physiotherapist and perhaps the most gifted hip hop producer of the moment Clams Casino will follow his Tri Angle release this week with a de-lux double vinyl remastered edition of his Instrumentals mixtape on Type Records in August.

The 12-song free download was distributed by Clams himself, and was one of the year’s most revelatory releases. Made up of homemade productions for Lil B, Main Attractionz, Deezy D and Soulja Boy, its hallucinatory palette drew in everything from Bjork and juke to new age house and early 4AD. Whatever real is, this is it.
