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!

Being that it is where I’m from, you should all know that GDD loves Colorado. Especially its unique taste in music genres and the epic EDM groups that have come out of there over the years; SAVOY and Pretty Lights just to name a few. However, there is a new presence to be aware of coming straight out of Boulder, CO known as Robotic Pirate Monkey. Formed in early 2010, R.P.M. consists of the B-Town trio of Matt Berryhill, Matt Flesher and Andrew Hathaway (aka. Hathbanger). Since forming R.P.M. has grown their fan base from local to statewide, as the next big up and comers on the Colorado electronic music scene and now they have the chance to prove their weight in the Golden State. For six weeks in May and June, R.P.M. will be cruising around the great state of California, bringing their Rocky Mountain bass to the West Coast. With opening support from THiCK CHiCK and Skywalkerr, R.P.M. announces their Buried Treasure Tour with 12 stops along the West Coast (including a stop at our VERSUS party on the 19th of May) – check ‘em out below:

Jungles Tales: Vol 1 by RoboticPirateMonkey

It’s been a long time coming, but what better way to release my newest mix as the exclusive promo for the upcoming Snowball Music Festival - March 4th – 6th in Vail, Colorado. I will be performing along side a phenomenal lineup of electronic acts (just check out the dance music poster at the bottom of this post and get the idea of whats about to happen) and solid indie bands (Flaming Lips, anyone?) I was going to try to include tracks from several of the artists playing the festival but I just have too many other great tunes that I’ve been waiting to unleash on you dirty dancin’ fools. So whether you’re gonna be with us in Colorado destroying the dance tent, or shakin that booty and fist pumping at your computer screen, grab this little doozy and get your dirty on. Oh, and I’ve decided to add the soundcloud player so you guys can listen from work or wherever you need to sneak your cheap thrills in.
