Pretty Lights is back up and ready to make you bounce your head to some luscious rolling beats. Released as a free download yesterday (like all of his music; check out his website), we have yet another Hip-Hop jam to get down with this Halloween, thanks to the ever prolific Derek Smith.
Those in University Park, PA, would have caught him tonight at GLOWfest’s Dancing In The Dark with RL Grime, Flosstradamus, and Krewella, but Hurricane Sandy made sure that was impossible. Not to worry! Pretty Lights has tour dates set up all over the U.S. before the end of the year, after which he’ll be taking off for a nearly month-long tour of Australia. Enjoy!
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.×
