Pretty lights is an umbrella. Under this umbrella stands a shifting collective personality. Sometimes two lights shine, sometimes three lights glow. They emit a strong mechanical hum that fills the emptiness provided by time and divided by imagination. They manipulate the world around, illuminating the dark into a breathing electronic cityscape, casting shadow that carve dusty yesterday into a reanimated paradise.
The Pretty Lights album Taking Up Your Precious Time was produced by Derek Smith and Michal Menert. Considered the debut PL album, TUYPT was released online for free download in the fall of 2006 and in the first year was downloaded over 5000 times across the globe. Since the release of TUYPT, Michal & Derek have been working on different projects, intending to explore new visions and satisfy their thirst for musical diversity.
In the fall of '07, Derek began performing in venues around northern Colorado beside live drummer, Cory Eberhard, with the desire to showcase new solo material intended more for the live setting/dance culture. This combination has pushed the envelope of live electronic music and continues to evolve the sound encompassed by the PL collective.
Histronic is a 3-piece jamtronica band based out of Minneapolis.
