The prolific Pretty Lights (AKA Derek Vincent Smith) is as generous as he is talented. This artist has a policy of giving all his music away for free. We sifted through the stacks to bring you his 10 most stunning productions, which best represent Pretty Lights’ hip-hop tinged sound.
The DJZ/10 is a collection of ten DJs that we think you should know about now. Some of them are already familiar to you, others you may have never heard of. The list is not based on (1) a secret computer algorithm, (2) social media popularity, or (3) payola. Every month or so we get together to decide if somebody from the broader A…Z directory is about to break out and should be included in the DJZ/10, or if somebody already on the list, for that matter, is “phoning it in” and deserved to be replaced by another DJ who is more worthy.×
