- Light Year's last record, released on Spectral Sound earlier this year, was a statement of intent. The former electro house producer was saying goodbye to Boys Noize and Busy P, and hello to L.I.E.S., Trilogy Tapes and more straightforward house and techno. Never Know is the UK-based Australian's latest offering. It's as house-focussed as his last effort, but shows he still has some way to go before he rubs shoulders with his influences.
Never Know features two cuts, both under five minutes long. The title track has strains of chillwave and witch house, with looped, distant vocal snippets and a breezy vibe. "JXP" is the highlight here, though. It's Light Year's best effort since switching to subtler sounds, and the only one that has any connection to his electro house past. Classic deep house synth notes make for an engaging analogue-sounding track, but there are only about three usable minutes, thanks to the beatless one-minute intro. DJs up for a bit of Traktor or CDJ looping, however, have a bomb on their hands.
