Producer Clams Casino has worked wonders for rappers like Soulja Boy and Lil B, crafting deeply soulful productions underneath their goofy lyrics. This year he found himself on some major albums by A$AP Rocky and Mac Miller. So some things have changed for Clams, but some things don’t and it wouldn’t be right to close out the year without one of his annual Instrumentals mixtapes. As he has in 2011 and 2012, the producer released a free downloadable tape of various productions and some instrumentals of tracks he worked on this year, including the opener “Crystals” which showed up in Grand Theft Auto 5. Download the mixtape here. (Thanks Raptor Jesus for the tip!)

  1. RED ALERT! RED ALERT!

    “New Jersey beats producer Clams Casino has released a new mixtape via Twitter. Download it here. He noted that it’s his third and final instrumentals tape.” – P4K

    Third and FINAL?!

    TO THE STEREOGUM CRISIS ROOM! STEREOGUM CLAMMY CLAMS CRISIS TEAM ASSEMBLE!

    • STAND DOWN DR. GONZO!

      We just received word from Based President Clams via Twitter:

      “‘Final’ mixtape just means last one of this series… I’m not quitting music forever haha”

      RED ALERT downgraded to a BASED BEIGE ALERT.

      My Grown-Up Christmas Wish? He moves on from the Instrumental mixtapes and assembles a full-length in a parallel vein as his TIMELESS Rainforest EP. My only life-long wish…

      • THAT’S A 10-4 AGENT RJC! THE CLAM IS IN THE RED LOBSTER, I REPEAT THE CLAM IS IN THE RED LOBSTER. BLACKHAWKS STANDING DOWN, RETURNING TO BASED GOD BASE

        And I couldn’t agree more. I want an actual cohesive full length so BAD. He’s said that’s what he wants to do, so I can only hope.

        • Between this and your Burial comment, you’re killing it with the komments this month drgonzo.

          He said years ago he doesn’t like waiting on rappers to use his beats. I’m still in awe at how cohesive and unified his Rainforest EP sounds.

          If not a full-length Clams Casino LP, then for the love of all that is holy give us a full-length A$AP Rocky / Clams Casino album. Could you imagine Rocky doing a one producer hip-hop album with Clams? I can and I support this message!

  2. Absolutely! The world needs more Clams Jams!

    I highly recommend following Clams on Twitter. Caught this announcement before Pitchfork reposted it and back in 2011 he RT’d The Weeknd and tipped me off to “Echoes of Silence” being released late December before any publications.

    One of my favorite current musicians by a long shot.

  3. Is it just me or do you have to install some piece of suspicious software to be able to download this?
