Pretty Lights Releases New Video, Plans New Year's Shows
Derek Vincent Smith, a.k.a Pretty Lights, is ending 2010 with a bang. After recently releasing a new EP, Glowing In The Darkest Night--his third in less than a year--and a new video for "Future Blind," the super producer will cap the year by playing two New Year's Eve shows at Chicago's Congress Theater on December 30th and 31st. Supporting acts include Tobacco, Holy Fuck and Major Lazer.
Pretty Lights' three EPs of beats that mix funk, jazz, soul and hip hop have garnered 1 million downloads from the producer's website, while his elaborate live shows have lead to sold-out shows at Bonnaroo, Rothbury, the 10K Lakes Festival and other venues in Europe and the U.S. You can download all three Pretty Lights EPs here.
