Clams Casino is the future. Fresh off collabs with the Weeknd, A$AP Rocky, dropping crazy remixes, instrumental mixtapes, and all the other killer stuff he dropped in 2011, Clams continues to prove his worth – his latest offering is an instrumental remix that chills the living daylights out of the rapper XV’s “Swervin’.”
It’s either tremendously ambitious or tremendously dumb to release an instrumental remix of a rap song, but Clams more than pulls it off – his sweet, delirious take sounds like a sunny comedown, like waking up from a nap at sunset still a little drunk, like a final summer slow dance. And what a perfect beat.
