Song Of The Day: John Denver - Take Me Home, Country Roads (Pretty Lights Remix)
Early, last Sunday morning, Derrick Vincent Smith of Pretty Lights debuted this track at the All Good Music Festival in Masontown, West Virginia. Celebrating its 15th year, All Good typically features a bevy of artists and musicians from Further to moe. to the Toots & the Maytals, though recently has been adding electronic artists to their late night sets. This years' line-up of electronic artists included Sound Tribe Sector 9, Pretty Lights, Big Gigantic, and Umphrey's McGee.
Pretty Lights has been touring heavily this summer, hitting festivals from coast to coast, and across the ocean. At this years' Camp Bisco Tenth Anniversary Party, Pretty Lights late-night dance tent set was easily one of the most attended of the weekend, but it's great to see that given his busy tour schedule, he's able to come out with some regular releases from 'I Know The Truth' at this year's Bonnaroo, and some of his mashups, 'Pretty Lights vs Summertime,' and 'Pretty Lights vs Radiohead vs Nirvana vs NIN.'
