The creative electronic music producer behind Pretty Lights, which has received over 1.9 million free album downloads to date and an average of 20,000 paid iTunes downloads per month, is Derek Vincent Smith. Over a strong as you like hip hop foundation, the music of Pretty Lights is layered with gloriously huge synth riffs and tons of chopped-up samples. The Fader noted that "Fly Away Another Day" is put together awesomely, like a mini-symphony, while NPR included "I Can See It In Your Face" on their list of "10 Songs To Shake The Dance Floor" from the Ultra Music Festival. Pretty Lights, a musician from Colorado, alternated between gloomy downtempo and energetic, thickly layered music that was more suited for clubs. In several of his songs, he combines aggressive synthesizer rhythms with layers of abstract hip-hop beats and heavy-hitting vintage samples. Smith has been extraordinarily active, putting out a number of albums and EPs over a short period of time, including the full-lengths "Taking Up Your Precious Time" (2006), "Filling Up the City Skies," and "Passing by Behind Your Eyes" (2009). Since then, he has performed his songs live with the help of musicians like Cory Eberhard and Adam Deitch at festivals like Coachella and Movement in 2010. Smith also runs the record label Pretty Lights Music, which publishes records by Michal Menert, Paper Diamond, and Break Science in addition to his own. In 2012, he made an appearance in the film Re:Generation Project..
