Rome Fortune
Rome Fortune
Rome Fortune is a diverse, 26-year-old, artist/producer from Atlanta, GA.


'When you take photos of Rome Fortune on a busy street in Austin during SXSW, people are going to look at you. Or, more accurately, they're going to look at him. The the 27-year-old Atlanta rapper, born Jerome Fortune, is over six feet tall, wearing a floppy hat, an aquamarine beard, and no shirt save for a denim jacket. He's also wearing jeans, and his denim-on-denim look is done so well, one can't help but worry the average passerby will convince himself he too can pull off a Canadian tuxedo.

Fortune is that rare kind of rising star that makes it all — the music, the look — seem effortless. Later that night, at an unannounced Fool's Gold Records show, Fortune will swagger across the stage above hundreds of screaming fans drunk with exhaustion, humidity, and Lone Star. He looks like the kind of rockstar you'd never see slumming it at street level, but this kind of public attention is a relatively new addition to Fortune's life.' --The Verge
The Range
The Range
Potential is the new album from producer James Hinton under his alias of The Range.

Hinton made the computer his primary instrument after falling under the spell of Baltimore club, bringing in his broader sonic influences from early '90s jungle, early '00s grime and mid '00s electronica to a new sonic whole. The software was the thing at home, but what excited the young producer was the network, and where he spiraled was YouTube. Potential uses as its backbone a series of vocal samples that Hinton has found in the forgotten corners of the site, guiding us around the hinterlands of YouTube, introducing us to unknown artists expressing themselves unfettered by the constraints of industry, lost in the infinite potential of an audience unknown.

Potential is a record steeped in histories – of its characters, of its forebears – but is startlingly new and alive: the network may be ones and zeros but the circuitry here runs on blood, still.
