Levels announced today via Twitter that the Pretty Lights Music Tour will take the stage of the downtown nightclub and bar on Tuesday, Sept. 30.
The “Pretty Lights Music: 2014 Keepin’ It Crew Tour” will feature EDM and hip-hop producers Michal Menert, Eliot Lipp, SuperVision and Paul Basic. According to the tour’s Facebook page, fans can expect a two-hour set with every artist on stage at the same time collaborating with each other, while also showcasing their own individual styles.
Pretty Lights Music is the record label created by electronic music producer Derek Vincent Smith, aka Pretty Lights. Smith, whose newest album “A Color Map of the Sun” received critical acclaim and a nomination for best Best Dance/Electronica Album at the 2014 Grammys, headlined Penn State’s “Dancing in the Dark” show at the Bryce Jordan Center back in 2010.
Although Smith himself won’t be making an appearance at Levels later this month, the quartet promises to bring a unique and exciting sound to the stage thanks to a “deep musical bond” between the artists that inspired the tour. Drummer and solo artist Paul Basic had this to say to Wild City, India’s online music blog, two years ago when asked about what it’s like working with Pretty Lights Music: “Every artist is bringing something fresh to the table but there’s also a common thread that has given the label its own sound,” said Basic. “I’m super excited to see how it expands. Also, the fact that it feels more like a crew more than just a label is really dope.”
