Roland Tings is Melbourne, Australia's jack-track anomaly with a penchant for acid coastlines and nebulous rhythms. Still fresh off 12" releases for 100% SILK and Club Mod, he dropped the acclaimed Who U Love EP (INT 027EP) in the spring of 2014, in anticipation of his debut self-titled album, now presented by Internasjonal. Forged by Melbourne's forward-thinking nightlife institutions, Tings made his debut in 2012 with the Milky Way EP on 100% SILK, the enigmatic dance imprint founded by Not Not Fun Records co-founder Amanda Brown. Having laid the groundwork of a raw-satin aesthetic inspired by those of Larry Heard and Robert Hood, Tings solidified his sound on Tomita's Basement, released in 2013 on Club Mod and featuring remixes from Maxmillion Dunbar (Future Times) and Jeremy Greenspan (Junior Boys). Functioning as club-ready oddities with neon finesse, his releases thrive as rhythmic visions pushing dancers into his very own modular oasis. Having toured across much of Australia and Europe, he's backed up headline club shows with appearances at MONA FOMA and The Meredith Music Festival as well as support slots for the likes of Tim Sweeney and Juan Atkins for Modular People's Sydney Festival showcase. Now riding with a tight community of Australian producers enjoying recognition around the world, Roland Tings's custom texture continues to fold into a vibrant late-night fabric, reflected in the skillful versatility of this debut album. The CD edition includes two tracks not included in the double LP version, "Venus" and "Pala."
