All of the Lights
So Childish Gambino is unreal. Period. Donald Glover? AKA Dong Lover?
Yeah. He runs shit. For some reason, we’ve posted this song twice. Now, my boy Sperry over at It’s The Bino releases a dope video of Donald performing his remake of Ye’s All of the Lights live in NYC, and Gambino absolutely kills it. Of course this is going to be posted–we love Gambino at SITR.

So yesterday, Mike asked Lydia and I if we’ve heard the unreleased Pretty Lights remixes over in the chatbox, which they released as a bundle just the other day in “Unreleased 2010 Remixes,” which you can snag from the Pretty Lights Website. I could go on about how dope these are, but that’s blatant, so I’ll just talk about my four favorites. Which, by the way, was extremely hard to choose, because these are all absolutely filthy. Enjoy.
1. NYE Chicago Bulls Intro Remix – Pretty Lights
So Pretty Lights did two shows in Chicago, one on January 30th and one on January 31st. They created this track specifically for those shows, and let me tell you, as a Chicago native, that’s pretty damn cool. This is a remix of the opening song the Bulls play before their games. It was beyond dope to hear this live, when people recognized it they went BANANAS. For real. People went bananas. Opening track potential for my future sets.
2. Pink Floyd Time Remix – Pretty Lights
This is absolutely, absurdly ridiculous. The fact that Derek Vincent Smith could create such a womper, while still keeping guitar, bass, and vocal stems from Pink Floyd’s original masterpiece, is unfathomable to me. I usually hate remixes of classics, but I absolutely love this.
3. Kanye West All of the Lights Remix – Pretty Lights
I have to give myself credit for this-as soon as I first heard Kanye’s ‘All of the Lights,’ I knew there was going to be an insanely dope dubstep remix. I was certain of it. Well, Pretty Lights delivered just that. Keeping the synths from the original and a lot of the original vocals and adding some ridiculous womp to it, this one is filthy. I love the wobbles on it.
4. Jay Z Empire State of Mind Remix – Pretty Lights
I went to the Pretty Lights show on the 30th (too busy raging and drinking Dom Perignon to go on NYE), and this is the song they closed the set with. I recognized it as soon as those chimes dropped, as did a lot of people, and you could feel the excitement in the air. Overall an extremely ridiculous concert, this was a great way to end it. Great concert, great night.
