Light Year came to be, many aeons ago, in a celestial orb - just slightly to the east of Australia's dance music capital, Sydney. His first release "Night/Vision" on Sydney powerhouse Bang Gang 12's, gained worldwide praise and support from Soulwax, 2manydj's, Erol Alkan, Tiga and Brodinski. The Night/Vision EP was the first step on a road that has seen him innovate his way from electro through to the rebirth and re-imagining of techno and house. His next release "5GIRL5", gained even greater acclaim, with high-rotation on BBC Radio 1, and a thorough working-over by disc jockeys the world over.
Light Year’s final release on Bang Gang: "Moderation" made waves within the electronic music scene with Tensnake & Tiga calling it one of their favorite tunes of 2012. Moderation later received remixes courtesy of Paul Woolford's Special Request project and Jori Hulkkonen (of My Favorite Robot and Turbo fame), which resulted in further worldwide acclaim. Light Year himself has turned his own hand to remixing, with impressive reworks for global sensation Tame Impala and indie darlings Flight Facilities.
2014 sees Light Year making his Spectral debut with "Come Together," a three-track effort carving its way through up-tempo house and techno. Title track "Come Together" shoots straight out of the gate without taking a second to look back while the slow burning "No One" dims the lights and gets comfortable in between driving sub-bass, a split second vocal loop, and pulsing synth. The release is rounded out by (digital-only) bonus track "Full Stop," a gritty closing track shrouded in underground aesthetics before futuristic synths connect the patterns into a singular consciousness of light, sound and dance.
