Following his acclaimed album Nonfiction and completed while touring across the US, The Range returns with a new EP Panasonic, out digitally and on vinyl on Donky Pitch March 25th, 2014.
Panasonic sees The Range further cement his position as one of electronic music's most unique voices. Elements of light and dark meet dense orchestration, breakbeats and a fresh approach to sampling across all six tracks, which remain true to The Range's love of R&B, hip-hop and drum & bass, channeled in a way that he has made his own.
After several EP's across the last two years, The Range released his breakthrough album Nonfiction in October 2013 on Donky Pitch, receiving Best New Music and a place in the Top 50 Albums of the year on Pitchfork. Further praise came from Billboard, XLR8R, Dazed & Confused, Line of Best Fit, Dummy and many others. Since its release, The Range has toured extensively across the US, with headlining shows and supporting slots for Thundercat and Metronomy, as well as an upcoming North American spring tour supporting CHVRCHES, sets at Festival NRMAL, Le Guess Who?, Primavera, this summer's Pitchfork Festival and to be announced shows at this March's SXSW in Austin.
