just released the single for “I Know The Truth,” the tune featured prominently in his Bonnaroo recap video that’s been linked around a few times here and there on this site and LMB NOLA. I guess Wes and I dug this tune having linked it up, and obviously Derek Smith had other reasons why he wanted to release this tune:

the track ‘I Know The Truth’ I wanted to try to fuse the emotion of dark 60’s the energy of raw bass heavy ,” says Derek Smith. “All the instruments were recorded to tape and then pressed to vinyl and then sampled for the sole purpose of attaining a warm organic timbre, and all the bass and synth sounds were reprocessed through synth modules to get a dirtier and at the same time warmer tone. It’s my first attempt at producing in a new style I like to call electronica. It’s modern electronic production created with an approach based on techniques from 40-50 years ago.”

I’m definitely psyched to have a crispy version of the track for my . Head over to prettylightsmusic.com to download the track. I’ll be catching PL (DVS) down in this week as part of the City Limits festivities. Then he’s hitting New Orleans and moving around the rest of the country for a bit, hopefully recording music as he rolls along…

Read on for the dates.
