Pretty Lights – Pretty Lights vs. Summertime

19 Apr

Derek Vincent Smith of Pretty Lights is the new age of electronic music and the music industry. Pretty Lights came out with their first album in 2008 and have been putting out solid records ever since. Derek always has all of his albums available for free download because he loves his fans that much and knows that he can still be successful without record sales. He has had tons of publicity from this, not only because it’s all over the internet and reaches a mass audience, but his music is just insane how good and unique it is. Now he has his own record label and is touring the world with pretty much every show selling out.

Pretty Lights could be described as a funk, glitch electronic artist that incorporates almost any sound you can think of. The thing I love about his music is he uses tons of samples reaching all the way back to the 40s, whether it be jazz, funk, disco, rock, hip-hop, you name it. I definitely suggest to go check out all of his albums and download for free at his website,

This track I have here is a very new one he released last week in spirits of summer officially starting. It’s a very summery tune that has 8 different songs sampled in it, one including Sublime. I’m not sure what any of the others are, but it has a great guitar sample, trumpets, and some hip-hop lyrics. I also included a download link below for this song. Enjoy this summer tune!
