On “Potential”, producer James Hinton masterfully creates mellow, yet powerful, beats to direct the listener’s attention to simple vocal samples that he pulled from the depths of Youtube. The sampled vocalists are mostly unknown artists and range in styles, from rap to indie. Completely new works of art emerge after Hinton is done sculpting the layered chiming pulses that accompany the looping vocals. The beats add a layer of hope to mostly melancholy lyrics. Dope stuff.
