Australia’s Light Year is back with another strong EP on your favorite rowdy label from down under, Bang Gang. “Moderation” is the follow up to Light Year’s two EPs in 2010, “Five Girls” and “Night Vision.” While the boundaries of genres have continually been meaningless to Light Year, you can always expect the unexpected. From disco house to acid-tinged techno, Light Year is responsible for bombs like “Sex Education,” which saw steady support from the likes of 2manyDJs, Erol Alkan, Tiga, Surkin and Cassian. You may also be familiar with his remixes for guys like Classixx, Bag Raiders and ZZT. While often unpredictable, you can always expect something crazy from Light Year.
Introducing his “Moderation” EP, Light Year has surprised us a few days ago by posting an edited music video revolving around lo-fi VHS rave footage. This random news is probably the most exciting part of my week. I really dig how he’s gone the deeper route this time around, yet has stuck to his heavy hitting touch. Like you’d expect from Light Year, you can’t really pin point a certain label to his music. It’s just made for going crazy and I’m looking forward to hearing this loud and live.
“Moderation” includes a b-side entitled “Revision,” which of course is an alternate take on the title track. This version pushes further into afterhours territory with its techno driven beats and heavy heavy bass. No release date has been provided yet, but stay tuned as the new Light Year jams are coming soon. Rumor has it that Light Year is USA-bound later toward the summer, and you can bet I’m already looking forward to it.
