The messiah of the Colorado electronic music scene, Mr. Derek Vincent Smith has blessed us with another amazing track today! “You Get High” is the last track Derek will release until his upcoming album is released. Speaking of his upcoming album, Pretty Lights made the entire thing from self-made vinyl. AKA he made his own records (the frisbees you stick on a turn table and put a needle to) and remixed them all together to create an album. That is quite an impressive feat and I’m sure that album will be nothing short of amazing. Back to the track “You Get High”; in Derek’s own words he describes it as “slow-mo disco stomp” and “it’s all about the high you feel when listening to good music.” I think everyone who has been a fan of Pretty Lights over the years experiences that same “high” when listening to any of his songs.
Now, Pretty Lights didn’t treat us with just a new track, but he was feeling so gracious that he accompanied it with a video! The video is set to the tune of the new track and is a recap of his 2-day masterpiece New Years Eve show at the FirstBank center. Yours truly was lucky enough to be in attendance on December 31st to see one of the most amazing shows i’ve ever witnessed. I know that usually my reviews are filled with obscenities and me just rambling on about the food i’m eating, but my review of this show? Perfection. Complete with lasers, the towers of lights in the shape of our famous Denver skyline, and balloons! Balloons you say? What’s so special about balloons? Well let me tell you! When there’s 1000′s of those motherfuckers ranging from the size of a baseball to as glorifyingly-round as a smart-car; from a perfect circle to giant six-foot dong shapes; from one side of the color wheel all the way to the other…all hailing down on you to the ultimate climax of a countdown from 10, all at the same time. It. Is. Fucking. Perfection. I have never witnessed in my entire life the level of pure joy felt by every single person in attendance, then at that exact moment. So Enjoy.
Well Well Well, if it isn’t our good friend Mr. Menert. This 27 track album is truly a gift and we appreciate all the hard work Michal and his friends have put into it. It has that classic Menert sound with some new approaches on downtempo electronic that we haven’t heard much of before. Menert truly has his own sound and with this second full length album, it is clear that he is here to stay.
With punching horns, high quality vocal sampling and resampling, and great drums with that classic Menert synth work, you can expect nothing but the best listening experience when running through this album. Notable tracks are: ‘After The Rain’, ‘Sky City’, ‘New Heights’, ‘The Golden Rule’, ‘Words Unspoken’, and ‘The Wind And The Walls’.
Enjoy a free download of the album and please, don’t forget to spread the music and share this post with all of your friends.
