Light System is:
- Tony Rabiola (Metica)
- Garret Lent (Garret Lent) (formerly: Torque)
- Mitch Butterbaugh (Butterbawlz)
Graduating from the same class of 2012, Light System is a premier electronic music act from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The group was formed after the pop punk band "As It Falls", which contained Lent and Rabiola, took an indefinite break. Lent and Rabiola remained friends and eventually took to producing electronic music through their own routes of Dubstep and House music. Garret had been wanting to further his music and so he decided to compile the best in electronic music from around the area. Calling on old friends; Tony Rabiola, and Mitch Butterbaugh to join him in a new project. The trio passed ideas back and forth until their debut download, "Reversion" was released.
Their introduction to the scene included fellow classmate Lucia Peterson, whom had shown tremendous skills in the past. The group would go on to feature Lucia in their second coming, titled: Homecoming. The latter track was released in the summer of 2013 as a follow up to Reversion.
Controversy ensued with the re-release of Lucia's vocals on the second track. The general public was confused as to if Lucia was a permanent part of the group or not. The trio has remained silent on this issue only stating that "we're only doing this for a hobby".
With the first live appearance, rare copies of "Memoirs of the Sun" were handed out to commemorate the milestone mark in the groups career. Only twenty-five copies were given out at the near sold out show. The CD included 10 original tracks from the three artists and one remix of Dada Life's "Happy Violence". Some of the tracks included were Tunisia - Metica, Follow Suit - Butterbawlz, and Chicago Rain - Metica (a previously unreleased track). All of the Light System tracks were included on the LP including two remixes of Homecoming featuring vocals by Sydney Eidem. The remixes were arranged by Metica and Garret Lent.
