Pretty Lights Music artist Paul Basic returns with his second album, Transient Horizons. A more refined delivery of his dark, heavy beats, Transient Horizons encompasses a unique range of mood and musicality. Transient Horizons features 11 tracks and includes collaborations with Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, and Trophy Beats.
“This album is grown from two years exploring a sound that best describes where my head and heart find both peace and struggle. It’s about the places we strive to reach and the paths we end up on as we pursue their elusive, transient meanings. To me, it depicts finding light and direction in otherwise dark, foreboding or unfamiliar places. These songs came from a personal place but I hope they go on to make new connections with anyone drawn to their sound.” -Paul Basic
Starting out as a drummer, Colorado producer Paul Brandt, AKA Paul Basic, joined a band with Derek Vincent Smith (Pretty Lights) and Michal Menert in high school before they each moved on to pursue solo production work. In Fall 2011, Paul released his debut EP, The Mirror on Pretty Lights Music, which featured a gritty, nostalgic sound blending dusty samples, grainy synths, biting bass and thick drums – a combination that earned him an integral place within the PLM movement.
Following the release of Transient Horizons, Pretty Lights Music artist Paul Basic gears up for a busy holiday season; Paul Basic will perform live on Beatport’s Ustream this Friday December 20th (4-5pm MST) and also will join the Pretty Lights-led Illumination Arena for the 3rd annual Decadence in Denver, Colorado on December 31st. To celebrate New Year’s Eve, Paul Basic joins label mates Supervision, and Break Science during the two day event along with headliners Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, Dada Life, Above & Beyond and Tiësto.
