Pretty Lights

I can't believe it took me this long to find out about Pretty Lights. This has to be one of the best "new" artist I've found this year. I've had his albums on repeat for the last couple of days and I can't say enough good things about his work...but...I am getting ahead of myself...let me start over....

Pretty Lights is Colorado based producer Derek Vincent Smith and when performing live, drummer Cory Eberhard . Pretty Lights , in a nutshell, makes instrumental hip hop with an electronic bent. To say that's all he does would really be a disservice to him. His music has soul. It's funky. It's got all kinds of samples amazingly put together and it also has just enough electronic flavor to separate it from the typical hip hop instrumental crowd.

He has 3 full albums (one is a double disc) on his website FOR FREE (go to the downloads page, duh!)! He is doing an insane amount of touring and if you get a chance...GO SEE HIM! You will not forget it.


Here he is with Cory on drums at Red Rocks earlier this year.
