Colorado based producer Derek Vincent Smith, recognized in the music world as Pretty Lights, has blessed us once again with that fresh soul flavor that we oh so dearly love. If you dig his latest Grammy nominated album, “A Color Map of the Sun,” which you can download for free at www.prettylightsmusic.com/music, you’ll be happy to hear he’s got an entire b-side en route for us! “Lost and Found” is the first release off the b-side, and man, this jam is on-point to say the least. Flawlessly fusing a relaxed yet hard-hitting break, subtle heartwarming horns, beautiful melodic strings, and a deep soulful vocal sample, this track will bring butterflies to your stomach and leave you tingling inside. The mastery on this track leaves you wondering why it didn’t make it on the album, but then again, does Pretty Lights ever disappoint? In addition to the new tune, a gorgeous visual accompaniment was released, further accentuating the awe-inspiring beauty of “Lost and Found.”
What, one new super steezey track’s not enough? Well, you’re in luck! Seattle based production duo, Odesza, just released a “Lost and Found” remix to accompany the new Pretty Lights track. Odesza’s remix will be featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming Science-Fiction film Divergent that is scheduled to release on March 21st, 2014.

Our favorite electro-rock band Jimkata has been catching our ear blending heavy beats, synthy hooks, and big guitars to create music with both modern and timeless appeal. Their brand new EP – Feel In Light, just came out today, and no different from previous releases, this is nothing less than epic!
We are super proud to present to you our latest EP, Feel in Light! Over the past year and a half you’ve helped us bring Die Digital to life. Since then, we have traveled over 75,000 miles, played over 200 shows, and have been truly humbled by the response to our music. In that time, we managed to write and record eight brand new songs, four of which are featured here.
We believe that it is not just our music, but the way in which we release our albums that serve as opportunities to strengthen the bond between us and our fans. That is why Burn My Money and Ghosts and Killers were released as free or pay what you will through our website. Die Digital, thanks to all of YOU, was almost entirely fan-funded. Now, we are releasing Feel in Light strictly through Bandcamp because we feel it best reflects this connection. It is released without the middlemen of Itunes or Amazon, allows the listener to download in better formats, and gives us a chance to recoup the out-of-pocket studio expenses that touring as an independent band doesn’t cover. This is because Bandcamp gives you the option to pay more if you feel the album is worth more.
Words do not describe the gratitude we have for your tremendous support. Thank you for being a part of this journey. We hope that together we can continue to create and give back to one another.

On Psymbionic’s “Storm”, you will find one side of the looking glass. As the first half of his two part release “Parallels”, this offering will be followed by its lighter sibling, “Eye”, later in 2014. “Storm” predominantly features upbeat and bass-heavy tracks and collaborations – music to fuel the more intense side of life. Released in partnership with Gravitas Recordings, the album is available as a free/pay-what-you-want download.
Strong foundations are laid with “Continuum”, an excursion through facets of funky hip hop with lyrics from the illustrious Jay Fresh. Next, “Slither” marches in as a serious stomper, heavy with bass-fueled melody. Vokab Kompany delivers a tenacious combination of vocals blended with mutant bass on the title track “Parallels”, creating an experience that fluctuates between glitch hop and dnb. “Facade”, co-produced with Gravitas alumni ONE4ALL, explores the sexy and futuristic before flipping the script with a moombahton-powered rhythm. Wrapping up the release is VibeSquaD’s reimagining of “Slither” which morphs the original into a trippy jam, providing a smooth landing until you hit play once again.
