Earlier this year Casino released a self-titled instrumental mixtape that compiles some of his best beats. The EP is a testament to his acute attention to hip-hop structure and truly makes it clear that Casino is a force to be reckoned with. Filled with richly textured, ambient sounds, minimalist drums, and well-placed samples, there’s no denying that his beats can stand on their own. Download the mixtape here.
Casino’s Rainforest EP, his most recently released project, is a five track masterpiece that centers loosely on a terrestrial theme, with songs titles like “Waterfalls” and “Treetop,” with some very earthy, textural sounds skillfully balanced with more celestial notes.

It’s a melancholy, emotive formula that he’s mastered over and over again, but on this cut the airy beats and instantly captivating melodies prevail. Listen below.
