♬ Pretty Lights – Around the Block

One of my favorite festival mainstays, Pretty Lights, has a kickass new record coming out just in time for July, “A Color Map of the Sun” (stream it FREE here!). Silky smooth like all the ones before it, this album adds a new dimension through the use of old-timey instruments Derek spent months traveling many miles to dig up. Tickets for the official launch party at the new underground club Output in Brooklyn go on sale at NOON TODAY, and are capped at only 800 people so act fast! Otherwise, you can catch pretty lights at Camp Bisco, Electric Forest, and a number of other amazing festivals across the U.S.

★ Pretty Lights – You Get High

While we were all out doing whatever we were doing this past New Years Eve, Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights, decided to throw himself a pretty friggin sweet new years party of his own. Returning to his roots near Denver, PL did a double-night stand, with friends Porter Robinson, Supervision, and SH-fave Zedd all joining in on the fun. The end result? See for yourself, in this live-footage based music video for his latest glitchy, grungy single, “You Get High”.

PS, visit SyncHarder’s new LIVE channel on Vimeo for more live videos of EDM performances!

♬ Pretty Lights – We Must Go On

After a recent global tour, Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights, filmed and edited this effects-loaded FCP video to accompany his latest release, We Must Go On. Dude had a pretty busy year, traveling from New York to Australia and everywhere in between; it’s interesting to see what he saw.

psst, he’ll be at ultra :)
