The Outlaw Country Breaking Beats: Light Year - Five Girls EP

I've been out of the game for a bit due to schooling but I had to come back to give you guys Light Year. You guys might have picked up their stellar remix of Surkin's "Fan Out" and gotten a taste (and if you didn't don't worry, it's down below), but the two Australians have just dropped a stellar EP by the name of "Five Girls" that you have to pick up. You guys might know the powerhouse label they're working with, The Bang Gang 12 Inches who have released stuff from TCHNCRCY favorites Cassian and the epic Bag Raiders. The title track is reminiscent of Herve's banger "Wasted" that we've praised before; its got just an epic hook sample and a droning bassline to get your body in motion. The other tracks are phenomenal as well: "In and Out" follows "Five Girls" stylo, "Marcellus" (dope Pulp Fiction fan video here) brings some Duck Sauce groovy horns to coincide with some disco vocal samples while "Movin" keeps it going with some jungle drummage, and "Public Service Announcement" pushes some bassline electro. The whole EP comes highly recommend from the TCHNCRCY Crew and you can grab it at Beatport here.

If you need some convincing I'm putting up some of the great remixes they've dropped along with the EP's title track to get you on board. The Surkin remix improves on all the parts of the original I loved, giving the bassline the love it deserves. The track is unmissable so pick it up. Along with that there is an ill remix of their Australian brothers, Bag Raiders, that shows their darker, atmospheric side along with a remix of "Operah" that's got the tweaked out bass we all love. And if that's not enough to put up some cash, you can check out the whole EP on their soundcloud to really hear what you're getting. So check the boys out and keep em on your list.

Speaking of groovey Duck Sauce, here's a Louis La Rouche's remix of their new track "Goody Two Shoes" that has been making the rounds. Figured I'd get it up while I'm talking about them. Sorry about it being ripped but that's all that is out there.
