It's our great pleasure to announce that Light Year has joined the UNDR ctrl agency.
Now based outta Los Angeles, Light Year aka Jordan Feller has just dropped the ‘Bell Trax’ EP - his 3rd release on German label Exploited, to follow up the ‘Feeling This Way’ and ‘Never Know’ EPs.
Hold tight for a tour announcement coming soon!
Light Year came to be, many aeons ago, in a celestial orb - just slightly to the east in one of Australia's dance music capitals, Sydney.
Light Year's early productions, dabbling in house and electro, were supported and played by a wide range of the worlds foremost peak time selectors culminating in a personalised artwork and feature in the now classic 2manydj’s live show. It wasn’t until Light Year released 'Moderation' on Bang Gang 12 inches that he truly found his feet as a producer. Moderation made waves within the electronic music scene with Tensnake & Tiga calling it one of their favourite tunes of 2012. Between original productions, Light Year has turned his hand to remixing, with impressive reworks for Tame Impala and Flight Facilities.
2013 saw a definitive move to the UK to allow himself to settle and hone his craft. The move paid instant dividends as Light Year enjoyed a very successful year in the studio with noteworthy releases on distinguished labels Turbo, Convex Industries and This is Music.
In March 2014, Light Year released his first EP with seminal US label Ghostly/Spectral with much critical acclaim and subsequent support from tastemakers. Later that year Light Year released his first of two EP’s through Berlin based imprint Exploited Records called 'Never Know'. Never Know saw a slight departure from the club based sounds he is best known for providing the listener with a slightly more organic take on sample driven house music.
In March 2015 Light Year followed this up with another EP for Exploited - 'Feeling This Way', gaining momentum on Triple J & FBi and BBC radio 1. This EP saw a return to the more club focused sounds taking influence from Booty and early Chicago trax artists.
And finally this August saw the release of Light Year's 3rd Exploited EP and 'Bell Trax'. 2015 is set to be a big year of releases with some surprises in store but for now Light Year will continue to work hard behind a rack of drum machines and synthesisers, in his studio, making sounds to merge the global dance floor community into a singular consciousness of light, sound and dance.
