Clams Casino's upcoming album 32 Levels is shaping up to be the perfect balance of fan service and exciting progressions. Songs like "Blast" and "Witness" with his day one Lil B contain the raw, muscular "based" sound the Jersey producer became known for, while other tracks reveal exciting new directions for artistry that retain his original charm, like "All Nite" with Vince Staples and now the Kelela-featuring "A Breath Away." It's hard to believe that they haven't linked up before, since the Fade 2 Mind singer has staked her ground with other distinctive producers like Nguzunguzu and Kingdom. But "A Breath Away" was worth the wait — the fog of Clams's production is dissipated by Kelela's soaring vocals, resembling a dewy morning somewhere high up on Clams's 32 levels.
