Pretty Lights takes over Sonos Studio


KCRW hosted a listening party  with electronic artist Pretty Lights aka Derek Vincent Smith to celebrate the release of his new album "A Color Map of The Sun"  at the exclusive Sonos Studio located in Los Angeles.


The intimate invite only Monday night event gave those in attendance a chance to see the documentary that was created along with this album by Smith's girlfriend, Kim Blackburn​. The film follows Smith and his crew as he pursues unique and original sounds all over the world. After the film, a short Q & A was conducted by KCRW's Morning Comes Eclectic host Jason Bentley. Later, the packed audience went ballistic with excitement as Pretty Lights took the stage and premiered new tracks and a newly released remix of Bob Marley's Exodus. Pretty Lights will be going on tour soon, and you can find more of his music here. All photos brought to you by Desilu.
