TSIS: Your debut album ‘Damage Control” includes over 15 tracks while other producers strictly releasing single after single, what inspired this bold statement?
MZ: It wasn’t really a conscious move to be honest. It was more for myself to experiment with new sounds and produce music that differs from my previous releases. Writing this album has been long process over the past 4 years and most of the tracks on the album now aren’t the same ones I started with back then… they’ve all evolved into different pieces and bits.
“This album is my brains translation of everything that I’m into.”
TSIS: The album features not only Electro House, Trance, Drum & Bass, but Hip-Hop and Rock influences. Is this your life time of influences all conveyed into one cohesive project?
MZ: Yes. This album is my brains translation of everything that I’m into. After listening to a bunch of different genres over the last few years, ‘Damage Control’ features the output of what I’ve made from hearing those styles of music.

The long wait is over, we finally get the next full length album from Pretty Lights, the musical project of Colorado based Derek Vincent Smith. A Color Map of the Sun takes a completely different approach to music creation. Derek went across the country working with incredible muscians recording his own collection of vinyls. He then he used his collection of vinyls to sample from to give his signature electronic twist. The result is an true work of art from start to finish. The amount of emotion and soul contained in this album is unlike any other electronic album I have heard, besides possibly Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. It is an album after listening to the full thing, I immediately find myself wanting to play it from the beginning again. This is something that will stand the test of time and gain Pretty Lights an even larger fan base.
Like all of his music he has made it the entire thing available completely for free. But he has also printed hard copies on CD and Vinyl, which are available here. He has also made it available on iTunes and Beatport.

Derrick actually traveled across the country recording musicians and turned those samples to vinyls and then sampled his own personal vinyl collection. He is releasing all the vinyl he samples as a second disc apart of the release. Listen to it in it’s entirety below. Full review coming Monday. You can also pre-order the double disc vinyl and CD version of the album though his website hereMake sure to come back on July 2nd when this masterpiece is finally released. Enjoy.
