I’ve been a big follower of Pretty Lights since the “Filling Up The City Skies” days and Derek Vincent Smith tried to create a modern Electronica beat on his new track. He premiered “I Know The Truth” back at Bonaroo over the summer. Derek talks about his new track below:
“ I wanted to try to fuse the emotion of dark 60′s soul music with the energy of raw bass heavy dubstep. All the instruments were recorded to tape and then pressed to vinyl and then sampled for the sole purpose of attaining a warm organic timbre, and all the bass and synth sounds were reprocessed through analog synth modules to get a dirtier and at the same time warmer tone. It’s my first attempt at producing in a new style I like to call analog electronica. It’s modern electronic music production created with an approach based on techniques from 40-50 years ago.”
I’ve been waiting for the CDQ of “I Know The Truth” since the HD Bonaroo Video Recap that featured it. Definitely give this track a listen!
