The first taste of an EP due in early 2016, and Roland’s first release since signing to exciting new label Soothsayer (part of the Mushroom Group), ‘Hedonist’ is a track that has been long gestating in the producer’s mind. The song was inspired by a hallucinatory experience Roland had after running out of water on a hot summer bushwalk in Alpine Victoria while collecting natural sounds for recording.
Forged by Melbourne’s forward-thinking nightlife institutions, Roland Tings made his debut in 2012 with the Milky Way EP on cult L.A. label 100% Silk. Having laid the groundwork of a raw aesthetic inspired by trailblazers such as Larry Heard and Robert Hood, Roland continued to develop his sound with the acidic, Mod-released Tomita’s Basement. He took a more Balearic approach with his debut LP, scoring love from the likes of triple j (who made it their Feature Album), XLR8R, Mixmag, Fader and Resident Advisor.
