Pretty Lights is dropping a remix album of his latest release A Color Map of the Sun on December 10th, and has hooked his fans up with a free stream of the album before it's highly anticipated release. Featuring remixes from Griz, Datsik, 12th Planet, HeRobust, and more, this album provides a whole lot of sound variety. Give this a listen on your best set of speakers and sit back and enjoy the sounds of Pretty Lights.
The mini-festival gave both headliners an equal opportunity to shine. While Pretty Lights closed out Friday night’s music after opening sets from SuperVision, PANTyRAID and Bassnectar, respectively, Bassnectar gave the final performance of Saturday night preceded by Koan Sound, Run The Jewels and then Pretty Lights.
As we look forward to the quickly approaching summer season, you can also look forward to new music from Derek Vincent Smith, the pioneer of soulful, electro hip-hop better known as Pretty Lights. His new studio album A Color Map Of The Sun will be a two-CD collection of 13-songs plus a second album, Live Studio Sessions From A Color Map of the Sun. This studio album marks the first Pretty Lights album to be released physically and digitally simultaneously. In true Pretty Lights fashion, the album will be available in its entirety as a free download on the album's release date via his website.
