The Colorado musical visionary, Derek Vincent Smith aka Pretty Lights, has been enjoying one of his most monumental years to date. I had the pleasure of seeing him at The Do LaB’s Lightning in a Bottle last May, and since then, he has been making his summer festival rounds playing Bonnaroo, Hangout Music Festival, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, and IDentity Festival to name a few. Derek has certainly come a long way, not only with his full tour schedule, but as an artist. His ability to paint an auditory masterpiece through his unparalleled versatility and unique approach of incorporating all of his musical influences (hip-hop, classic rock, downtempo, dubstep) into a track is a rarity in today’s saturated music industry. With every FREE release, I become more impressed and this latest, “Pretty Lights vs. Led Zeppelin,” remix is no exception, especially since there are seven Zeppelin songs that were sampled. It’s excellent to see the classic rock legends carry on through modern means!
