Stare At Your Shoes-Clams Casino-Motivation

Clams Casino, the stage name of New Jersey beatmaker Mike Volpe, is one of the pioneers of the “cloud rap” movement, which features tracks with hazy beats and grainy synthesizers overtop traditional hip-hop rhythms. It’s not difficult to draw a line between Volpe’s haunting compositions and some of the more ambient or beat-driven shoegaze out there. “Motivation” is the opening track from his excellent 2011 album Instrumentals.
