Pretty Lights Announces New Album For 2017

pretty lights new album

Longtime TSIS favorite Pretty Lights has revealed some pretty incredible news to close out 2016. 

Colorado newspaper Denver Post reports that Derek Smith (PL) will be releasing a full new studio album in early 2017. "It’s not just a music record," Smith says, "I’m actually making a film with it, as well." The exciting announcement comes after three years of fans patiently waiting for the Colorado icon to release his next body of work since Color Map of the Sun.

"I’m trying to make a film and a record that’s really about the connection of people — the amazing things that happen between people on the same frequency. It will be an episodic thing that makes a full piece. Every song has an episode."

Despite only releasing one new song over the past couple years, he's commanded things on the live front with his mesmerizing show that is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. He's continued to make his mark on top of countless festival sets, to throwing his own annual camping festival in Telluride or his new touring Episodic festival this past fall.

Smith goes on to say that the album connects to his music festival. 

"When I was booking that tour, I wanted to call it “The Weekend’s Episodic Festivals.” I didn’t know why I wanted to call it that, but it’s all going together. Every festival, we’d have a film shoot that became the building blocks of these episodic film pieces. It’s pretty (cool)."

From the sound of it, each date of his last Episodic tour will be turned into a song / episode for the album / film. We couldn't be more excited for what's to come from Pretty Lights. TSIS has reached out to get more details on the project so stay tuned. As always, enjoy!

Listen to Adventure Club's Debut Album 'Red // Blue'

AC press Album

It's been a long time coming for Adventure Club's debut album, but Red // Blue is finally here. The 12-track album captures a little bit of everything from their nostalgic, anthemic records like "Fade" feat. Zac Waters and "Limitless" feat. Delaney Jane, to new songs like "Firestorm" feat. Sara Diamond that taps deep house. 

More than anything, Red // Blue showcases the group's evolution as producers. The album caters to both the day one listeners, who first latched on to their melodic dubstep sound, and more recent fans who've been able to experience a more diverse set of releases from the duo.

Adventure Club says "Without You" feat. Hunter Siegel is the favorite track off the LP. The creative production playfully distorts Siegel's smooth vocals while launching into a unique bass-driven drop that throws dubstep-like synths into a progressive structure. There's also some new future bass sequences that glue the sections together.

"Forever" is another song added to the mix that steers away from the group's signature sound. The tune dives head first into laid-back melodic house that's perfect for a day drive. However, the duo is able to successfully bridge the gap between their classic sound design and new styles with "Dreams" feat. ELEA and their "Save Me" collaboration with Terravita, both of which are comprised of lush piano chords, warm drum kicks and echoing vocal chops.

Adventure Club takes their listeners on a journey with Red // Blue as they confidently explore a variety of genres. Stream it below and enjoy!

Stream & Download deadmau5's Eighth Studio Album 'W:/2016Album'

What better way to enter the holiday season than by listening to deadmau5's brand new album? While the Canadian DJ/producer has expressed on Twitter that he felt the LP was "rushed" and "slapped together", we think the mau5 may be too hard on himself.

W:/2016Album is Joel Zimmerman's eighth studio album and is comprised of 12 tracks that span a wide array of moods and styles. The songs take on a variety of playful titles such as "Cat Thruster" and "Three Pound Chicken Wing". We first caught a glimpse of the highly-anticipated project back in May when he released "Snowcone", his first official single in over two years.

The track strays away from what we're typically used to, holding down a simple hip-hop beat mixed with ambient layers and crisp percussion. However, Zimmerman's' follow-up reminds us of the deadmau5 we all know and love. "Let Go" feat. Grabbitz showcases cinematic strings, lush atmospheric textures and beautiful chords that are sure to bring you goosebumps.

W:/2016Album brings out the nostalgia in loyal fans with songs like "4ware" and "2448" that are built on powerful builds, emotional leads and euphoric melodies reminiscent of deadmau5's early-day hits like "Strobe" and "Some Chords". Zimmerman also doesn't shy away from experimenting on the LP, sharing tracks like "Glish" and "Whelk Then" that embrace a freeform structure with offbeat drum hits and abstract instrumentation. 

Stream deadmau5's latest album below and let us know what you think! Also, check below for a list of new tour dates that will likely be paired with his epic stage setup, "Cube 2.1". Enjoy!
