I got turned on to this guy called Pretty Lights a few months ago and have been following him since. You can make up your own mind if you dig him but after watching his documentary on the making of his new record, I'm a fan. Thought some folks here may agree.
28 min Documentary - great recording session footage
I adore his older chill stuff, seems like a solid dude but I personally hate the jerky dubstep tracks so I skip those
If you dig him, you should check out grammatik as well. Good stuff.
this might be... how do i put this... when it comes to music and music making, the coolest f*cking thing i've seen in many years.
all the little videos of big production heads acting like wannabe geniuses and cranking out garbage. then there's this guy, on a mission, loves music for music's sake. loves hip hop, real hip hop. it just puts them all to shame. ok not all, but many.
who in god's green earth creates 28 lps of fresh breaks from a blitz of live sessions, to tape, then straight to vinyl to create his sample library? 28!
amazing. and inspiring. love this.
seems like he plays at every festival i go to. guy puts on a great show
I like how all his music is free from his site.
some nice tunes there.
I like his sets on soundcloud (The hot sh*t episode) but it seems that all those 100 sets are containing the same 10 songs :-(
The downtempo stuff he does is pretty good, although some of it has a certain cheese factor to it. The dubstep, like all other brostep, is shit.
I saw him a few years ago at this hippy festival a girl I was dating dragged me to. He opened up with some really nice downtempo jams and I'm thinking, "Thank fuck, I can't take another 20 minute guitar solo". Then, bam! Right into a bunch of shit dubstep.
His light show was really sweet with all the 3d projection mapping. But, anyone standing up there doing a "live" show standing behind a laptop and a midi controller is so fucking boring. Especially in a concert like environment.
Streaming the new album now that uses all of the samples he recorded in the documentary.
he gave a shout out to me in that posted documentary at 10:00.
this made me want to listen to White Lotus
This is awesome thanks!
