The Range – Potential

Two facts about YouTube: On average, over 100 hours of video are uploaded to the website every minute, and if uploading were to cease altogether, it would still take you some 60,000 years to view all of its data. Its eyes have seen more beauty and horrors than any, and James Hinton is after its secrets. For Potential, his second album as The Range, Hinton scavenges YouTube’s wild split ends, collecting snippets of human voices, isolating them, and assembling them into a collage held together with the paste of his top-of-game production skills — each beat directing focus towards a vocal-sample-as-pièce-de résistance. They add up to one single staggering statement on the present moment.
