If you’re going to rip a Hip Hop classic, you better make whatever it is that you’re creating damn near as good as the original because then there’ll be hell to pay. Not necessarily by us, but by the people that stand and swear by the classics. Pretty Lights has taken the challenge and exceeded expectations when releasing “Rainbows & Waterfalls”. As those of us who know the original, this track is an easy-listening type of tune that uses vocals that is similar to Nate Dogg’s deep soothing tone. It has a warmth to it that makes it much more interesting when they speak of chill things like “Rainbows & Waterfalls” to think of when we want to smile. Pretty Lights keeps the chill vibe when they use chimes and bells harmoniously to jam the rhythm to, but they take it to a different path when the drop comes because they use a long subdued bass drop to lengthen it. The interesting take is that they keep the vocals singing during the long bass drop sound to make the drop as chill as the tone. It’s a very interesting sound Pretty Lights decided to use for this classic but we absolutely love listening¬† to “Rainbows & Waterfalls” when we want to chill and vibe out.
