Valente – “The Distant Lights”

[soundcloud id=’90512079′]

Valente was born in Rome to two musical parents. You can hear the music in his blood. He now bounces between Los Angeles, Europe, and Asia, working on music scores and  his project under the Valente name. “Distant Lights” first caught my ear through one of the great remixes available on his Soundcloud but the original version deserves special attention for its sparse arrangement and lush beauty. So far it has separately stopped both my roommates in their tracks as they walked by the song playing. Songs like that don’t come around every day.
