"Two Nights Under The Starlit Skies In The Majestic Colorado Mountains"
Pretty Lights, one of the most influential faces in live electronic music, and Colorado's hero, always continues to keep his fans guessing with unexpected twists every single year. Last year he managed to work with the Colorado Symphony to have them play with him for his last two nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.. a venue he's been selling out for over 4 years now. He has headlined festivals all across the world and played in the smallest and biggest of cities. This week he has revealed some very exciting, and long awaited news, the first ever true Pretty Lights camping event. The guy has been dominating the camping festival circuit for years now, so it only made sense.
He has chosen the gorgeous location of Telluride, Colorado, and specifically the Telluride Town Park, out in the open right next to the gorgeous Rocky Mountains as close as you can get to the stars. He is set takeover the amazing outdoor location over August 28th and 29th this summer where he will be making history.
This is what Derek Vincent Smith aka Pretty Lights has to say about the special 2 day gathering:
"I've thought a lot about what a perfect place to throw a Pretty Lights concert might be, and what that actually means. I think that Telluride Town Park might be a place like that. The energy that resonates there is beyond the cusp of my own understanding but it is powerful and undeniable. I think that the seclusion of Telluride creates a real opening to focus on getting in touch.. with each other, ourselves, and the vibrations we experience as music, light, and life. PLUS the stars shine incredibly bright and the mountains are jaw dropping. These two nights in Telluride will be an awesome and historic opportunity to experience a live Pretty Lights show in what may be the perfect venue,"
You can purchase tickets to this special, extremely unique event through here on Feb 27th.
Rae Sremmurd made waves with their debut album, and today we hear a remix of one of their less popular tunes from the release, "This Could Be Us".

George Maple has continued to pop up on our radar through her originals and now as incredible remixes of her breakout single "Talk Talk" have surfaced.
Renowned Australian beatmaker Ta-Ku is typically very clever with his way of reimagining songs and his latest track is no exception. Ta-Ku’s rendition of “Talk Talk” gives the track a completely different feel as he slows the tempo down and puts interesting effects on the vocals that change throughout the song. The track starts out slow until his irresistible percussion comes in around the one minute mark and the beat evolves to gain more energy up to the end. Ta-ku surprisingly offers his own vocals on part of this song (and they sound great) as he states in the song description "Remixed the homegirl… I even sung a verse.” Enjoy!
Swedish electronic duo Galantis have begun to turn the world into fans through non stop infectious singles like “Smile”,”You” or most recently “Runaway (U & I)” all accompanied by amazing music videos.

They bring an organic twist to the dance world that really makes them standout. Listen to the first chance to hear the full song below and look out for an official release on Feb 23rd through Big Beat. Enjoy!

It’s no secret that Soulection is one of the most forward thinking labels out there as they have fittingly labeled themselves as “The Sound of Tomorrow”. They have helped put exciting artists on the map like Mr. Carmack, Sango, Ta-Ku, Esta and many many more. Today, we have for you the latest member to join their talented cast, the innovative 18 year old producer Sam Gellaitry from Stirling, Scotland.
Gellaitry’s progressive sound is displayed in his debut Short Stories EP as his hard hitting bass sits perfectly alongside dreamy, atmospheric melodies to create his unique contrasting sound that is truly genre-defying. Each song on this project takes many unexpected turns as the producer constantly surprises with the shifting of a variety of instrumental layers. "Reflectionz" and "To Earth and Back" both sound like standouts, but honestly every single track on this project is amazing and worth listening to from start to finish. Enjoy!
