Pretty Lights - the musical project of the electro soul hip-hop pioneer Derek Vincent Smith - released A Color Map of the Sun on July 2, which is Grammy nominated for the Best Dance/Electronic Album. The two-CD collection contain the 13-song album A Color Map of the Sun plus a second album, Live Studio Sessions From A Color Map of the Sun. A Color Map of the Sun builds on the original Pretty Lights sound and style that Smith pioneered. He spent a year composing and recording music and vocals that emulated genres and time periods that spanned the last century, then pressed it to vinyl.

He used that vinyl along with a custom built analog modular synth to create A Color Map of the Sun. The resulting album is analog electronica - soulful, electro hip-hop that pays respect to music's immense power to touch listeners emotionally, kinetically and inspirationally.
