- Sydney's Jordan Feller has been skirting the fringes of house and techno for a while now. He's best known for his blog-friendly electro as Light Year, a project he started with a fellow Sydneysider in the late '00s but has since taken solo. While a duo, Light Year caught attention with a series of hyperactive, compression-heavy EPs on Bang Gang 12-inches, a label that once housed a number of the main players in Ed Banger-inspired Australian dance music. Feller has dropped a few tracks since Light Year went solo, but his recent record on Spectral Sound, Come Together, is something of a turning point, as it seems to be his first real step towards traditional house.
If Come Together tells us anything it's that Feller now looks to L.I.E.S. and The Trilogy Tapes more than Justice and Busy P. The EP's three tracks have a smoky aesthetic stacked with with abrasive samples, and should do well with DJs looking for edgy tracks to pad their bags with. The loopy "Full Stop" is the clear pick of the bunch and a pleasant exercise in give-and-take—unlike on the all-too-familiar sounds of the rest of the record, Feller's voice is clearly heard.
