    Default PRETTY LIGHTS 2010

    This is the thread for all things Pretty Lights! Loved his set at the EDC last weekend and can't wait to catch him again. Please bring him to Coachella 2010!

    If you don't know here is a link to his first two albums. They are FREE, but I would have paid full fuckin' price for these gems: http://www.prettylightsmusic.com/

    Here is a sample of his live show. He has never spun a record on stage, he does everything live. Perfect for the Sahara, but after dark PLEASE! Come on Coachella Boardies, show your love!

    The albums are free, because if he tried to sell it he would have to clear all of the samples he used.

    enough with these gimmicky acts.

    we already had to suffer through etienne this year (which was probably the biggest letdown in coachella history).

    i don't think so. if that were the case, then every dj would have to pay royalties every single time they play a set.

    Couldn't disagree more with your first statement. Saw him 2 weeks ago at EDC(not ettiene) and there were no gimicks, unless you count samples as gimicks. Great lights and video, but pretty standard really. Ohhh yeah and... he killed it.

    Couldn't AGREE more with your second statment. I just didn't get it. + there were lights outside of the tent that were kind of brighter than the cube. I was pumped for it and after seeing it... meh. I can think of 10 other acts that were better in the Sahara that weekend, and what a weekend it was.

    I just thought of something funny, Ettiene de MEHcy or Ettiene MEH Crecy. Either one pretty much sums it up for me.

    Hm. I know you can't show movies in public without reimbursing the studios so I thought it would be similar with music.

    Pretty Lights is going to be there whether you like it or not. I suggest that you go to prettylightsmusic.com and download his albums. That way, when he absolutely kills whatever tent they put him in you will enjoy it as much as possible.

    "Taking Up Your Precious Time" and "Filling Up the City Skies" - Disc 1 are pretty good but are a little different than FUTCS - Disc 2, which is REALLY good.
    see you in '12

    is going to be where? what the hell are you talking about, and who are you responding to? do you know how to use the internet? you should be asking yourself these questions.

    etienne was so terrible - a true disgrace and smack in the face of plump dj's. to put etienne AFTER the plumps is sick! if the plumps would have played during etienne's spot people would be talking about them so much.

    and pretty lights is the shit, if you have a chance then don't miss it, especially with the drummer.

    So as I was reading this post, I was thinking to myself, is this spam?

    But I decided to check out the youtube clip.

    I don't see what is gimmicky about it. So please explian what the gimmick is?

    This guy sounds very fresh and I am really digging it. Would love to see this act at Coachella next year. Thanks for the heads up Casino

    No problem guys! I'm glad people are liking this, cause I'm hooked; and yeah he will be there next year and probly with a pretty nice time slot. Anyways, "If you ain't gonna ride fly, then you might as well hate."

    ... but seriously, it's not like I was gonna set you all up with the Jonas Brothers or something.

    "he does everything live"

    bahaha. yeah right. look at that nice, shining laptop he has in that video.

    i'm sorry but as soon as i see a laptop on stage the set gets 100x more boring.

    and that guy's stage presence is...just awkward, i felt embarrased just watching him.

    "stage presence" and "dj" should never go in the same sentence. what are you trying to say?

    I dig the music, but agree that the dude seems so awkward on stage that it makes me uncomfortable.

    O.K. fine... not "Everything Live". The drummer is there most of the time (I prefer he wasn't) for partial "Liveness", but what I meant was he plays a Mono 128. This lets him produce incredible variations of his pre-recorded & sampled tracks right on the spot. He can basically produce a whole new beat "live" on the spot. Like I said, he has never spun a record on stage which is sick by me.

    Here's some close up video for those who are interested. If you've never seen a Mono 128 played up close before, you must check this out.

    I fell like I'm an f-ing P.R. rep for this guy, but he does have an answer for the "awkward" stage presense...

    "If I could get a taller table it would be a lot less hunch. I love seeing an artist really get into the music they're performing, and really that's all I'm doing..."

    I got into Pretty Lights post-Coachella, pre-Rothbury. Hi my name is Naproxen and I'm an addict!!

    I downloaded the three albums from www.prettylightsmusic.com and proceeded to listed to them daily up til Rothbury. Now Pretty Lights performed Saturday night, so Thurs-Saturday afternoon was me bouncing around the camp, humming the tunes, blasting them from my car radio, and hooking everyone I was camping with onto the same.

    I managed to catch Pretty Lights 3!!!! times at Rothbury, soundcheck, scheduled performance (during the fucking fireworks, check youtube vid below) AND randomly found myself at the Umphrey McGee's late night set at the exact time Pretty Lights came on to do a midset break for them! Good for me, not a huge Umphrey's fan, I thought I was just real real lucky.

    Anywho, here is how I spent my 4th of July fireworks display:

    Hot Like Sauce:

    I want nothing more than Pretty Lights at Coachella 2010....late!!!! Hell, let him do a campers only performance too. With or without the drummer, this guy fucking kills it.
