Aussie Techno-head, Light Year, will be in Los Angeles this Thursday at the Echoplex in Silver Lake for the big-time lineup that the good folks at Check Yo Ponytail have put together including Tiga, Damian Lazarus, and of course, Light Year. It’s going to be a night of massive tunage, and the mate from Sydney has put together an exclusive mix to coincide with the party. Featuring tracks from Green Velvet & Harvard Bass, French Fries, Moodymann, and more, this mix seems to be the Techno equivalent to the Luvstep mix series from Dirty South Joe & Flufftronix. First party to it, then FREEK down to it, and report back with which was more fun. Download + tracklist down below. √+

The southern-cal homegrown indie electro band American Royalty recently released a huge remix package for their newest singles. The Matchstck Remixes EP comes loaded with 6 wildly different remixes of 3 original tracks: 2 bassline driven versions by dirtybird’s own J.Phlip, a deep techno side from Bang Gang’s Light Year, and 3 breakthrough productions from young guns Richnuss, Stryker Matthews, and Slates.

The J.Phlip and Light Year remixes are of course top notch, but my favorite is the ‘high brow deep house with a garnish of disco’ mix by Richnuss (comprised of Billy Scher of American Royalty and Peter Nussbaum of Guns In The Sun). You decide – the EP is completely for FREE DOWNLOAD from their facebook page!

An all time remix hailing from the Light Year buds over in Australia, beefing up local hometown heroes American Royalty’s new track, Blood Keys. Definitely a dark and heavy take on the original with deep grooves that will burn holes in your sisters all-stars, as well as her brain. Guns In The Sun Records is giving away the entire 6 track EP for free over at American Royalty’s Facebook page here. And if you’ve got the attention span of a retarded rabbit, we’ve embedded the Light Year Remix below for your streaming. Johnny Darko met the Groove Prince of the Underworld and it was glorious.

Auzzie-based Light Year just released this dance-crazy music video promoting his new Moderation EP. The 2 track release features the self titled ‘Moderation’ and b-side ‘Reversion’ – both which slow to a groovier pace than his previously high-energy techno. Watch the video above and scope out the EP below! Tracks are coming soon…

MODERATION EP by Light Year


We’ve got (2) names you need to get used to this year. Ex-member of  Light Year now called Jensen Interceptor just remixed the ex-member of Hey Today! now called Nickel. That’s all I’m personally gonna tell you about Jensen because the bio on his facebook is more than amazing and needs to be read:

No Brainer Records boss, Malente, teamed up with Zero Cash of Television Rocks for a 2-track EP released the other week titled, I’ll Be There. At first glance, you might think that the title track would have a sentimental, Avicii-type sound, but there’s just no way Malente would go for that. On the contrary, the EP is a fantastic convergence of Electro and Techno, and our buddies known as Light Year add a fantastic Acid flair to it that hits the spot. Head on over to Beatport and pick up the EP which also includes remixes from Modek and Kill Frenzy.

I need to get me one of these shirts! Happy Monday GDD™ people! After one serious bender of a weekend, I am back to the grind and ready to give you all some great tunes to start the week off right. Check out this 5 pack of remixes from some of the top artists in the game right now.

Light Year – Marcellus (Malente Remix) √+
Our buddies from Oz are coming out with a HUGE remix release this Friday, July 15th on Bang Gang Records. The package features remixes from Harvard Bass, Strip Steve, Alex Gopher, The Finger Prince, and of course Malente. Give this groovin’ House track the volume it deserves and head over to the brand new Light Year website for more info.

Noah and the Whale – Life Is Life (Yuksek Remix) √+
So what it’s a Monday. Turn that frown upside-down after listening to this pick-me-up of a track. Smiles and sun all around.

Chromeo – When The Night Falls (Hercules And Love Affair Remix)
I posted the Breakbot remix of this track last week which had the standard Disco feel to it. This rendition from Hercules And Love Affair throws in a pretty catchy synth lead in the mix. Give it a go.

Little Dragon – Ritual Union (Tensnake Remix) [Beatport]
The Swedish band, Little Dragon, released the EP for ‘Ritual Union’ last week on Peacefrog Records, featuring touch-ups from Tensnake, Maya Jane Coles, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Tensnake turns the tempo down in this remix to create a really great track. Grab Little Dragon’s full length album on July 26th.

Azari & III – Manic [The Finger Prince 'Static Situation' remix] by PurplePR
Great new remix from Bang Gang rep, The Finger Prince. Can’t wait for this release.
