Fresh off an incredibly successful year, Derek Vincent Smith (a.k.a. Pretty Lights) is ready to give his fans a gift to start the New Year off right- the announcement of his own record label, Pretty Lights Music, which will release free new music in early 2011. Derek’s objectives are simple- he wants to supply his fans, and fans of electronic music at large, with free music from the artists he believes in and supports.

Today, he’s thrilled to announce two new digital releases (in addition to Michael Menert) on Pretty Lights Music, both due out January 25th. Break Science will be releasing their new EP, Further Than Our Eyes Can See, and Paper Diamond will be dropping his debut EP, Levitate.

Raised in the cultural hotbed of New York City, Break Science’s Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee fuse the city’s rich musical legacy- jazz, funk & soul, with a deep-rooted connection to its hip-hop heritage to create their own take on modern electronic music. Break Science’s EP, Further Than Our Eyes Can See, consists of thought-provoking, highly-textured, bass-pumping songs that include verses from some of today’s most conscious artists: Brooklyn’s Talib Kweli and Jahdan Blakkamoore, Sierra Leone’s Bajah and India’s Falu. In addition to Break Science, Adam Deitch also doubles as Pretty Lights’ touring drummer.

Colorado based producer Alex B is rolling out big tunes under the new guise of Paper Diamond in 2011. The Paper Diamond sound has raw energy and the kind of dramatic anticipation only a seasoned producer can incite. Driving beats and bass grab on tight while deep, rich tones rumble under layers of spacey synthesizers, sweet melodies, and catchy vocals. Paper Diamond’s debut EP, Levitate, will be available for free download via Pretty Lights Music on January 25, 2011.
