Well, I don't know where my head's been at for the past few months because I'm definitely late getting on this latest release by Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights. I had been aware of the tracks on this album individually, but I had never actually traveled to Pretty Lights' Website to discover this was available for free download just as all his other releases are.
Check out these tracks below for a few of my favorites and jump to the above link to download the entire album for yourself.
"Fly Like an Eagle" is one of my favorite Steve Miller Band songs and the Pretty Lights wobble twist that was added is pretty cool.
Growing up in the 90s, I was a huge Chicago Bulls/Michael Jordan fan and his remix of the Bulls' starting lineup theme from that era really brings me back. He debuted this at his New Years Eve shows in Chicago, so that was a pretty fitting move for him.
Lastly, a new take on an all-time classic with Pink Floyd's "Time." Not much to say here, a pretty standard Pretty Lights remix of a song most people have come to love. The same vocals and guitars are used, with added hip-hop beats and wobble bass. This is more of a glitch style remix than anything, but it's great to hear someone bringing a fresh version of this tune to life.
