Pretty Lights Music
I saw Pretty Lights for the first time in 2009 before he was blowing up the internet and all that. It was actually a great show, memorable for his computer falling off the stage. It’s ok though – the music kept going.
Now that hes moved on to bigger shows Pretty Lights has been putting together some sick material and even crazier shows. More impressive though is that all of his music is free and he essentially takes fan requests for remixes (i.e. Country Roads).
Yesterday, however, I finally found out that PL Music had signed Gramatik one of my favorite up and coming producers. Gramatik’s tunes have a very Jazzy feel and are great for anytime of the day. Especially Friday morning hangovers. He just dropped his debut album Beats and Pieces Vol. 1 which has been getting a lot of play on the Hype Machine. You can get it for free here: www.prettylightsmusic.com/therecordlabel/gramatik.html
More important though, I discovered that Pretty Lights does an annual show at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado. New life goal is to attend. It’s already sold out for this year, but a Pretty Lights show in a venue like this….well the picture speaks for itself:
