Having scooped our album of 2011, yesterday’s news that Mike Volpe had dropped another Clams Casino instrumental mixtape caused quite a stir round these parts. In addition to an instrumental version of his remix of Lana Del Rey’s chart-topping ‘Born To Die’, the 14-track LP features contributions from hip hop’s current poster boy A$AP Rocky, Canadian R&B sensation The Weeknd and long-term Clams Casino associates Lil B, Squadda B and Main Attrakionz. Upon initial listen, the mix isn’t perhaps as jaw-dropping as the first volume, but it’s still definitely worth checking. Daisy Ashford
