Pretty Lights


I’m happy to see that Colorado is seeing a resurgence in musical talent. We might not be Silver Lake , Brooklyn, or Denton, but we ‘re a pretty tight niche community. The latest act to surface is a producer by the name of Derrick Vincent Smith, aka, Pretty Lights. His live shows are accompanied by drummer Cory Eberhard, and together, they make make sounds that bring together smooth beats and sounds probably how Girl Talk would sound if he actually made music. Think of a glitchier RJD2 and the result is Pretty Lights. The good news is that you can download the previous two albums in their entirety over here and Pretty Lights has a forthcoming album due next month, so make sure and look out for it because it will also be a free download.
