Song Of The Day: Pretty Lights - The Day Is Gone

Pretty Lights has just released this new track alongside a Recap Video for NYE 2013. From the video: "This is produced by Pretty Lights specifically for the shows in NYC on December 30 & 31, 2012. We hope you enjoy the recap!" This is the first original track released since "So Bright" was leaked, and the released by PLM. Both new tracks have a dark, soulful feeling to them, and this latest release is sure to stir buzz about Pretty Lights' upcoming album which as of now is still without a release date.

As always, Pretty Lights has a busy touring schedule, and will be headlining numerous festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, The Governor's Ball, Bonnaroo and Electric Forest.  Let's hope sometime this year he drops that new album.

Song Of The Day: Gary Clark Jr. - Bright Lights (D.V.S.* Remix)

In spite of its massive popularity, many people still hurl the uninformed criticism that most electronic musicians, producers and DJs are mere "button pushers" lacking any real musical talent. These people clearly haven't seen the Brooklyn-based, multi-talented producer/guitarist, D.V.S.* aka Derek VanScoten.  VanScoten is a prolific performer, boasting collaborations with Govinda and Space Jesus, and a multitude of remixed tracks from Pink Floyd, Bon Iver, Wiz Kalifa, and many other artists.  He has recently made mention of a full length album in the works that would include his first original releases as D.V.S.* since 2011.  After a busy touring schedule in 2012, D.V.S.* can be seen at the Ableton NAMM Clinic in Anaheim, CA on January 25th, and at the Cleveland Agora in Cleveland, OH on February 22nd.

Song Of The Day: Moods - Love Is Real

Rotterdam-based producer Moods has released a number of new tracks since his self-released Break Out EP this past August, including the catchy "Love Is Real." Incorporating a relaxed hip-hop beat, R&B vocals and sharp jazz guitar samples, this track is both refreshing, and demonstrative of the style that Moods puts into each of his songs. This Dutch producer is still pretty fresh on the scene and doesn't appear to have any gigs in the works, though he is clearly focused on creating a steady stream of fresh tracks on the regular, so we will be keeping an eye on him.
