August 16, 2011

Pretty Lights is the musical vision of the ultra-versatile Colorado based producer Derek Vincent Smith.

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 have been downloaded more than 1.4 million times from A 2010 sold-out North American fall tour and two sold out shows in Chicago for New Years Eve propelled Pretty Lights into 2011.
