“I’m feeling much excitement about announcing the 10th Anniversary Pretty Lights shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado on August 10 & 11, 2018. This year will be the best year yet, as we continue to gain more & more understanding about what is possible when this many people come together organized in love and music. I’m putting all my energy into these shows and they will be the only shows of the summer, possibly all year. Can’t wait to open portals to higher dimensions of consciousness with the homies in the PL Live Band: Borahm Lee, Alvin Ford Jr., Chris Karns and Brandon Butler and The Lazer Shark. Come celebrate with us! Always, the light will shine as a guide.” – Derek Vincent Smith

Pretty Lights x Akomplice

From the mountains of Colorado to travels that have taken them the world over, Pretty Lights and Akomplice are cut from the same cloth. They both exist to innovate. In the same way that Pretty Lights was revolutionary to the electronic movement, Akomplice also helped pave the path for modern-day streetwear. It is under this framework of shared history and mutual respect that they decided to join forces. Together we have created this essentials pack intended to enhance the summer festival experience.

The items are being sold à la carte, or as a kit. Only 200 units of each item was produced. The collaboration will be releasing on the Akomplice Webstore on Friday July 13th 2018, at 1:30pm ET / 11:30am MT – HERE

A Note From Derek

LETTER 22 is a story of the positivity that underscores all movement towards progress and enlightenment, no matter how many obstacles stand in the way. It is the story of a pure force of will, hidden somewhere out there, that is dedicated to revealing evolutionary truths to this universe in a systematic way.

It is the story of a visitor from another place, charged with delivering an enigmatic message; a wandering guardian, protecting a civilization that rejects the sun; and a being watching over it all, orchestrating its rhythms.

LETTER 22 is also the story of all of us, who have each, at one time or another, felt ourselves to be in possession of knowledge or insight that appears an innate, universal truth to us, but is callously dismissed by others. In such moments, it is easy to feel as though you truly are from a different planet, governed by a different sense of logic and order than this one, which used to feel so familiar.

However, in such moments we also find ourselves at a crossroads – a point in spacetime where we must choose to either succumb to these tribulations, or overcome them, and let those triumphs fuel the continued search for others who are also willing to open their eyes to another point of view.
