- The Range :: Exclusive Mix
New York producer James Hinton, aka The Range, has a knack for building tension and release.
His recent album Potential (FBi Album Of The Week, March 2016) is built entirely from vocal samples taken from Youtube videos, skilfully manipulated into tracks that traverse pop, hip-hop and deep melodic beats. The project took Hinton over 200 hours of Youtube-crawling, a marathon effort that resulted in a record packed with emotional intensity.
The record later spawned a documentary called Superimpose, directed by Daniel Kaufman, which sheds light on the human stories of the people Hinton sampled (who were unknown to him at the time).
Currently touring Australia with Tourist, The Range put together this hypnotic, mix of trancey club, house and techno for us before stopping by the FBi studio to chat with Dan Gordon on The Playlist (listen back here).
