Daily 2% – Chilled and Ready to Serve [Pretty Lights]


This is your Daily 2% – Chilled and Ready to Serve. We will try to bring you one "chill" track every day. This is for when you get home and you are trying to unwind. You reach for that glass of wine or that unlit Black & Mild or maybe you reach for something more herbal. This track is for those times. We are just your milkmen and I'm here to make a delivery. Chill…

Today's delivery is brought to you by Pretty Lights. Pretty Lights (aka Derek Smith), who hails from Colorado, is one hell of a legendary producer. He only really got his start back in 2006 but quickly made a name for himself with his downtempo and hip-hop-esque beats. You hear a complex simplicity in his work that resonates and sticks with you. It quickly has you noddin' your head. I'd also like to point out that Derek Smith started out as a solo artist but ended up adding Adam Deitch to assist with live performances. The track I'm bringing to you today is entitled "Happiness (Troubled Faces)" which is from his 2006 album entitled Taking Up Your Precious Time. This is probably one of his most widely known albums but I'm guessing there are plenty who still haven't heard it. Check out the track and chill…..

  • I read your description of the song, 'complex simplicity' and thought it was the stupidest term I've ever heard. Then I listened to the song and realised that it was the most accurate description of the song anyone could make.
