They are FINALLY coming to Indy!
Pretty Lights is the musical vision of the ultra-versatile Colorado based producer Derek Vincent Smith, accompanied in the live setting by drummer, Cory Eberhard. Together these two achieve a raw energy rarely reached in the realm of electronic music. At a time when music lovers from almost all subcultures, and genres are finding common ground in the basic form of bangin’ beats, Pretty Lights is giving the people what they want; electro organic cutting-edge party rocking beats that fill venues with energy and emotion, and send dance floors into frenzies. What makes Pretty Lights truly different tho, is that these beats have serious soul. Derek’s latest album, “Filling Up The City Skies” is a two disc, 26 track journey through past, present, and future. He juxtaposes collages of beautiful vintage samples against backdrops of futuristic synthesis and dirty broken beats, creating a sound that can snap your neck while simultaneously shedding your tears. The album has been downloaded over 30,000 times from the Pretty Lights website in the short 3 months since its release, proving that the PL sound is not only getting around, it’s spreading like a virus.” – Jam Base
Apologies, I couldnt give you my fresh assessment of Pretty Lights, I have to get to work and im in no mood to come up with some witty critique of a sound that is indescribable. All I can say is that they have been my favorite for quite some time now and they have the sickest light show known to man. Pawn your shit if you have to, do not miss this show.
BTW – Pretty Lights will let you download ALL of their albums for FREE right here!
Props to Slater Hogan (Keep’n It Deep) and Live Nation for this one.

* PRETTY LIGHTS is the musical vision of the ultra-versatile Colorado based producer Derek Vincent Smith, accompanied in the live setting by drummer, Adam Deitch. Together these two achieve a raw energy rarely reached in the realm of electronic music.
At a time when music lovers from almost all subcultures and genres are finding common ground in the basic form of bangin’ beats, Pretty Lights is giving the people what they want; electro organic cutting-edge party rocking beats that fill venues with energy and emotion and send dance floors into frenzies. And the people are responding. Pretty Lights’ six albums, Taking Up Your Precious Time, Filling Up The City Skies, Passing By Behind Your Eyes, Making Up A Changing Mind, Spilling Over Every Side, and Glowing In The Darkest Night have been downloaded over a million times from PrettyLightsMusic.com.
A 2009 sold out North American tour propelled Pretty Lights into 2010 with the first tour dates in the UK and Europe and a North America spring/summer tour including stops at Coachella, Glastonbury, SXSW, Outside Lands, Wireless and Ultra Music Festival.
* PAPER DIAMOND – Forward is not just a direction, it’s a way of life for Colorado based producer Alex B who is rolling out big tunes under the new guise of Paper Diamond in 2011. The new project finds the trusted producer moving into previously untraveled musical territory.
The Paper Diamond sound has raw energy and the kind of dramatic anticipation only a seasoned producer can incite. Driving beats and bass grab on tight while deep, rich tones rumble under layers of spacey synthesizers, sweet melodies, and catchy vocals. One thing is for sure. The energy is high.
In keeping with the way of the future, Paper Diamond’s debut EP “Levitate” will be available for free download from PRETTY LIGHTS MUSIC and ELM&OAK RECORDS on January 25th 2011.
