Brooklyn-based electronic producer James Hinton has bubbled up from the underground over the past 5 years under the alias The Range, crafting vibrant and forward-thinking beats and experimental club rhythms on labels such as Astro Nautico, Donky Pitch, Project: Mooncircle, and Domino Records. His latest album, Potential, signaled his most adventurous release to date, uniquely fusing samples from vocalists he discovered on YouTube with his own sharp, intoxicating, varied productions. His exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World features a handful of re-worked versions of tracks from his recent album, new original songs featured in the Superimpose mini-documentary that spotlights the creative process behind the album (additional info here), as well as an early look at a bunch of unreleased songs, to get you familiar with his progressive sound.
