Earlier this year, James Hinton (aka The Range) released his spectacular sophomore LP, Potential, after months of scouring the internet for soundbites and field recordings to use as samples on the record. In the end, the producer found what he came looking for and so much more, resulting in one of the best and most sonically interesting albums of the year. To our delight, Hinton has brought that same forward-thinking approach to his remix of Tourist‘s “Run.”
Like many of the tracks on Potential, this remix drifts between prettiness and intensity, as if in a constant state of limbo. While much of the original composition has remained intact, Hinton has brought out the track’s dark undertones and amplified them, pulling sounds from his newly acquired bag of tricks. It just goes to show what can happen when two of the best producers in the game collide.
