There is wide spread consensus across the dance community that Derek Vincent Smith is fostering a voluminous cult following with his glitchy brand of “future analog” and his stunning live performances. Some might even call it a “PL Movement,” as fans flock to all corners of the country to never miss a beat.
Everything came to a head this weekend at Pretty Lights‘ biggest show to date, dubbed “Season Two Premiere: Episode 6,” which took place Aug. 4-5 at Washington’s world-class outdoor venue The Gorge. The Pretty Lights team also announced that the second night of the event would be streamed via YouTube Live for all those not in attendance.
The set stretches to two hours in length, with Smith and his live band cohort throwing back to the old days with live flips of “Yellowbird,” “Only Yesterday,” and “Summer Love,” along with a special guest appearance from Michal Menert. The performance signaled the time first time the two future funk players shared a stage in over eleven years. In case you missed the breathtaking Pretty Lights Live performance this past weekend, you’re now in luck. Fans can now witness the full set in high quality audio.
