You won’t catch me hyping too many Ciara songs, edited or otherwise. With that said, it’s hard to argue with this “Promises” rework from Rhode Island producer The Range. For the unfamiliar, The Range is a financial whiz with a penchant for making emotional bass music.
This somewhat bubbly version of “Promises” appears on The Range’s amazing Astro Nautico mix. It’s a glorious precursor of what the BPM-loving world can expect on his upcoming Seneca EP. It will be out in April via the ever reliable Donky Pitch.
Seneca features three original cuts, and three remixes from the likes of Howse, Supreme Cuts, and Obey City. Get ready for this EP – for real. The Range pours syrupy vocal loops over a fat stack of jungle break pancakes, crafting quick-footed mixes reminiscent of what producers across the Atlantic are making right now. Then I remember that The Range is releasing this dope EP through a Brighton-based label, and it all makes a little more sense.
When it comes to good music, it’s a pretty small world after all.
