The Range-“Florida”_Ear Worms

On his new album, Potential, The Range showcases his ability to combine many different sounds from around the internet in interesting ways.  Beginning with plucked strings and other textually intriguing sounds, “Florida” includes a fun, dance-able beat with a bright vocal sample.   Despite the pop-y elements, The Range maintains his mellow, moody sound aesthetic displaying the ability of Electronic Dance music to maintain subtlety.  Rather than chasing the slick, metallic synth sounds of Calvin Harris (shots fully fired at Calvin his music is horrible), The Range remains subdued creating artistic songs out of his unique way of sampling.  It is also respectable that The Range doesn’t use any feature artists for vocals, instead manipulating previously recorded material to his own soundscape.
