Coming in at #3 on the list is electronica extraordinaire Pretty Lights. He made a name for himself this year through his dazzling productions and energetic live shows along with drummer Adam Deitch. Combining aspects of hip hop, electro, dubstep, and even a little jazz, he manages to pull off a sound that is both uplifting and soulful. He's already toured all across America, including Electric Zoo
, leaving starry-eyed fans in his wake. Pretty Lights certainly has found his "sound," and we look forward to hearing it evolve over the next few years. Oh, and by the way, this guy is nice enough to give away all his music for free on his website
. All he kindly asks for is a small donation.
