Light Year was created many aeons ago in a celestial orb east-side of Sydney, deep in the back-garden of Australia. The release of the ‘Night/Vision’ EP in 2010 brought the now cult classic LY track ‘Sex Education’ to the world’s attention and was eagerly played out, happily edited and highly recommended by Soulwax, Erol Alkan, Tiga and Mr Oizo.
That was only the start, for the release of ’5 Girls’ 6 months later was met with an even greater reception. The EP received a thorough tanning from deejays all over the world including revolving on the wheels of steel on BBC Radio 1. Light Year has also accumulated a serious amount of remix work over the last year with the likes of Bagraiders, Surkin, ZZT, Alex Gopher, Classixx & Feadz requesting the unique LY re-twist touch.
2011 has also brought jaunts of both Europe and America, both continents playing host to over a dozen packed out club soirees. Upon returning home LY performed a run of sell out gigs nationally including Splendour In The Grass and Parklife to celebrate the ‘5 Girl5 Remixed’ release, which featured handiwork from Strip Steve, Harvard Bass, Alex Gopher, and more.
With two EPs and two continental club tours under the belt, Light Year is now forward thinking in a large vortex of momentum. Winds are whispering news of a massive new single release before 2011 comes to an end with more national and international touring to follow. Stay close don’t fear as this is a new beginning, a Light Year 2.0, an LY renaissance and so the future is only Light Years away.
