Pretty Lights, never one to stay quiet for too long, is following up a massively successful year- he fulfilled the promise he made to his fans at the beginning of 2010 by delivering three new EP's, and followed that up by touring the world over, and launching Pretty Lights Music, his digital record label at the beginning of 2011.

Now he’d like to share the news of a Spring tour, taking place from late March through April, and he’s taking his production to the next level. The tour sees him taking his visually stunning live show all over the East Coast and Midwest (all dates below), and they’re going to be bigger and brighter than ever. If you haven’t caught his live show yet, don’t miss out!

On top of all this, he also found time to launch a new YouTube channel last week, featuring unreleased Pretty Lights tracks, remixes and mashups that he debuted live over the course of the past year. Head over there to check out new remixes of Pink Floyd, Jay Z, Steve Miller Band and more!

If you missed the news last week, Pretty Lights Music released two new EP’s for free downloads; Break Science’s Further Than Our Eyes Can See, and Paper Diamond’s debut EP, Levitate. The purpose of the label and its innovative model is to supply his fans, and fans of electronic music at large, with the freshest music from the hottest new underground artists.

Groove Armada announces Tour Dates

Andy Cato and Tom Findlay, better known as Groove Armada, have announced a spring U.S. tour in support of Black Light, their sixth studio album releasing March 2 on Om Records. The tour will find them dropping by the U.S. for multiple dates in New York, California, and Florida, including appearances on Morning Becomes Electric and at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. The highly anticipated Black Light sees the duo stepping in bold new directions and featuring an impressive list of guest artists, including silky smooth guest vocals from Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry on the single “Shameless,” vocal turns from Kate Bush-evoking chanteuse SaintSaviour, and appearances on several tracks from Nick Littlemore of the Aussie electronic sensation Empire of the Sun.

Prolific remixer Classixx has produced a light and playful remix of Black Light highlight "Paper Romance," replacing the hard four-to-the-floor of the original track with bubbling synths, softly skittering drums, and delicate, swooning guitars that bring out the passionate vocal takes from SaintSavior and Fenech-Soler.  Download the remix here, and feel free to post and share!  In addition to Classixx, several tracks from the album have already been remixed by other such luminaries as Mock & Toof, Bloody Beetroots, and more, all currently available on iTunes. Keep an eye out for a remix from the always fun Dan Deacon!

In case you missed them the first time around, don’t forget to catch the videos for singles I Won’t Kneel, and Paper Romance here!  Don’t miss your chance to see this legendary duo live when they stop by the U.S. this spring!

HOLY KIMOTO LANDS IN MIAMI

Each year, right after New Years Eve, thousands of music fans embark on the Florida coast for the six-day Jam Cruise – an event featuring the nations top independent improvisational talent. This year is no different, the already sold-out Jam Cruise returns to American soil allowing local music promoters to get in on the action.

The White Room in Miami will play host to the “jam-elite” as headline performers Steve Kimock and Kyle Hollingsworth join forces with the electronic duo EOTO for a first-time performance together on a single stage, on January 8th. The event dubbed “HOLY KIMOTO” has already created significant national buzz and ticket sales are selling briskly.


Friday, January 8, 2010
HOLY KIMOTO @ The White Room

1306 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33136
AGES: 18+ | Tickets: $20adv/$25door

The single-night performance will feature inspired jams and highly improvised music, as the collective will not have rehearsal time before the show. Kimock will board Jam Cruise with his project Crazy Engine while Hollingsworth will perform on the boat with both his own band as well as The Motet’s Talking Heads tribute act. The New Year will find Jason Hann and Michael Travis making waves of their own as they take their full-time project EOTO along the Florida Keys for their 2010 kick-off tour.

This rare and special event will play witness to a number of musical surprises and will feature the nations best improvisational artists on a single stage. While each of the musicians has performed together in various side projects, the foursome has not shared a stage as a single unit before. Listeners will have a chance to see the project take significant musical risks – an entity that defies the jam community and their devoted fans.
