Clams Casino - Drowning
Hello Reddit, I am the New Jersey-based producer Clams Casino.
I'm here to answer your questions.
EDIT: Thanks for all your questions.
Any plans on continuing to sample Imogen Heap?
Several of your beats that feature her work are my absolute favourite.
How did you know It's what I've always wanted Could never have too many of these Will you quit kicking me under the table I'm trying, will somebody make us shut up about it Can we settle down, please Love that part.
One of the most incredible songs I have ever heard.
I had it on repeat for a week when I first discovered it.
Is 32 LEVELS gonna be on Google Play Streaming anytime soon?
Was looking forward to listening to it when it dropped on Friday but wasn't available : be original dont copy other producers.
I've been wanting this to happen for so long.
You two were my most played hands down 2-4 years ago, very surprised that you haven't met and also hopeful to hear a collaboration between you two : Any reason you use a rainforest clams casino download of nature sounds in your production?
They sound phenomenal and add a lot of interesting depth, particularly on your EP.
I used to use this for so long.
Not sure I'd be able to stick it out this long though Hi Clams, big fan.
Does it have a special meaning?
Also come say hello in.
Did you ever just say "fuck it" and quit so you could focus on making a living off of beats alone?
How do you start with nothing and end up with "Ghost in a Kiss?
Is it something that just has to come organic inspiration, everyday events, etc.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to do this, big fan of your music!
Did you land any production on Staples' Prima Donna EP?
Not be the kind that wants artists to stick to the same stuff, but any chance we'll ever hear a "Just For Now" sample again?
How come you didn't produce anything on At.
Felt that album had something missing because of it.
Cheers for the reply.
Will we ever get "the album with Clams" that Squadda B mentioned on the song Fakest Year Ever?
Do you still keep in touch with Main Attrakionz?
Any in particular worth noting?
My laptop rainforest clams casino download computer broke down recently so all I have is a smartphone for the time being.
How do you feel about some producers in hip hop saying they don't feel like they get enough credit.
FlyLo said that he feels as if Metro Boomin made Future rather than the other way round.
Do you think a producer is more important than the rapper?
Someone needs to make the most elaborate shitpost of all time by tracking T-swift's face to all rainforest clams casino download killers in that, and tracking the Wavvy Ye's face to all the victims.
I'm very pleased to hear this.
No point coming out with an inferior beat just to say you worked with Ye I've noticed that you've used a lot of field recordings from nature in your production.
Is there some specific reason for this?
Still haven't had a chance to listen to 32 Levels but based on your previous work and the singles it should be lit I know this is a longshot, but is it even possible for proper vinyl releases of all your instrumental mixtapes?
Was it tough growing up with the name Clams Casino?
I'd think the kids would be pretty brutal with a name like that.
Thanks for being such an iconic producer.
Clams, if you could create the original soundtrack for a videogames of a renowned videogames franchise, which would you pick?
I understand you are a fan of Mortal Kombat and The Legend of Zelda.
These are also my favorite.
From 32 levels Skull sounds like something I could hear in Mortal Kombat and Blast in Zelda.
Keep the amazing job!
Its so funny that this is a mystery.
It should fill into auto correct when you google the man, Clams Casino Beats, Lil B, Recipe.
What was your initial connection to the Bay Area and how did you link up with guys like Young L, Deezy, Lil B, etc.?
Not sure I can wait that long.
Are CD's available at Best Buy?
I haven't purchased a hard copy of an album in years, but I've been waiting on a debut Clams album for a longgg time.
Are there any artists out there that you haven't worked with and would like toand if so who are they?
Have you read rainforest clams casino download David Higgs story that is commonly linked with I'm God?
What are your thoughts on that?
Hey CC, how do you go about sampling, do you record your own samples, or where do you get them usually?
I got into your music only this year but I can say you are slots of fortune download one of my favourite contemporary producers.
Also, finally I'm in time to an AMA to ask some questions and hope to get them answered!
Do you realize that that sounds a lot like how you can describe the music of My Bloody Valentine?
Besides, I find a lot of similarities between your music and theirs.
Have you ever listened to their music, and if so, what were your impressions?
If you haven't I urge you to do so, it is worth it I promise!
Best to start with the album Loveless.
Secondly, is the main hook, when the beat starts, made of the same sample as the Imogen Heap song in the intro?
How did you get it to sound so different, or what other sample did you use?
If rainforest clams casino download which ones and if you don't mind elaborating how?
Good Afternoon Clams, I've given Lil B music to use on one of his projects.
When he used the music I sent I never really felt like I was see more the credit that I was due.
Did you experienced the same issue, and what made you continue to work with him?
Any chance of uploading them to?
Also: would you ever produce an official movie soundtrack?
You the goat love u clams!
Can't write a whole lot because I'm on my phone, but your production on Live.
Love is what got me into hip hop.
I only have time to write one question, so I guess: do you find it easier or harder to work with artists who are very involved with production?
For instance, Mac makes alot of his own beats, but someone like Rocky or Lil B work mostly w others production wise.
Do you get alot of feedback from artists?
Is it ever a collaborative process?
I'm quite a fan of your stuff.
Been listening to 32 Levels lately these days and it's pretty tight!
How to improve arrangement skills?
I cant do but produce really tiny loops of beats and just polish them in terms of mixing and shit.
Cant do anything longer out of that.
Big fan of your stuff.
What inspired you to flip that Imogen Heap sample so many times?
Also do you actually eat clams casino?
I heard you were doing an AMA so I had to make an account for this.
Is click here really just as simple as sending them an email, or is there a bit more to it?
Any particular VSTs or other plug-ins that come to mind?
Best of luck with your new album!
I was also wondering if there's a way for people like me to contact you to try to work together in the future?
Its obvious through your name and social media posts that you really into food.
Have you ever thought of doing your own food show?
If so who would you choose to co-star???
Which rappers have you personally worked with that you really enjoyed?
Like, not just sending them a beat, but actually working with them in the studio.
Was going over the liner notes on "32 Levels" and noticed Mikky Ekko has a lot of additional production credits, most surprisingly on "Blast" which I would've figured was just you.
How does that collaboration work please click for source in the studio?
Also: Would you ever consider fully producing an album for one rapper?
Thank you for your time and of course your great music!
Do you have a melody before getting into it or do you just do random stuff until it sounds good?
Hey clams, huge fan.
What does your process typically look like?
Where do you start?
How long does your process take?
Is it a very messy process or a linear one after all these years?
Was not having any instrumentals on ALLA really a surprise?
Were you expecting stuff to make it on there?
Thank you for all the real good stuff you dropped Is there any chance you'll make your older material like "I'm God" purchasable or streamable?
I do appreciate that you have new stuff that you need to promote and sell which I do enjoy but I think it'd be great if your older stuff could live besides it so they can be added to playlists and libraries together.
That beat is so beautiful, cant even find any recreations of it on youtube.
What are some VST's you can vouch for?
Another damn question ahahh sorry.
I think you would sound dope w Lana del Rey or childish gambino, and I could see u sampling slowdive maybe What's up Clams?!
Big fan of yours since I first heard you producing some of Lil B's work back in what 2010?
You're honestly a bit of a pioneer with that cloud sound.
I'm always quick to drop your name in on discussions of the best active producers and rec them your instrumental tapes.
Grats on the new LP.
All that said I was a bit bummed to see you left off of ALLA and was worried that you and Rocky might not be talking or planning to work together anymore.
Needless to say I was stoked to see you guys together on Be Someday dope track dude.
Anyway, you guys good?
Were you always good and it just a decision Rocky made to go to a new place sound-wise on ALLA?
Can you please work together more in the future?
Keep fucking going, you're as talented and creative as anyone in the game today.
Love your bjork samples.
Do you ever plan on working with her more?
Also am I crazy or did you use Neon Genesis Evangelion samples or is my mind making things up?
I have one more question for you about the album, if you don't mind me asking.
I love Level 1 and Skull and was wondering how they came together?
Like what samples you used and how you found them.
