Clams Casino has been sending his beats out for years with them having appeared on tracks from Soulja Boy and Lil B. In the last few months, however, he appears to have realized he can do as well, if not better, without these guys and has been focusing on instrumentals. He recently released a mixtape of instrumentals from his past production work (which you can get for free here) and is releasing a solo EP calledRainforest on the 27th June. Here’s the video to that EP’s closer, Gorilla, which is directed by Jamie Harley. It’s a pretty dark and drone-influenced beat pretty typical of Clams Casino with, what sounds like, a pretty heavy witch house (sorry) influence. From the sounds of it, this EP is definitely one to look out for. It also has to be said that I’m a fan of the David Copperfield footage in the video.

Guys, I don't know if you got the memo but Domo Genesis really likes weed. So to celebrate 4/20 yesterday he released a little track called Cashmere for free on the Odd Future blog. The beat on this is as smooth as it gets and is apparently by Uzii. This track is the latest of a string of absolute bangers to come out of the Odd Future camp in recent months. Give it a listen and grab it down below.

Here’s MellowHype, Hodgy Beats and Left Brain of Odd Future, with garage rock band Bass Drum of Death playing through a brand new song called 64. It’s performed on the The Daily Habit and will, presumably, be on the reissue of BlackenedWhite coming later this year. Proof if proof is needed that these are the guys to watch in Odd Future.
