2014 has been a vintage year for Melbourne music-makers, with Inskwel, Benny Badge, Andras Fox and Tornado Wallace all delivering killer releases. The latest Victoria producer to emerge from the shadows is Roland Tings, who returns to Internasjonal with his second EP for Prins Thomas's acclaimed label. "Devotion" kicks things off, layering bold riffs and glassy-eyed electronics over a chugging, 105 BPM Scandolearic groove. There's a touch more tropical humidity about virtual flipside "Pala", an eight-minute excursion that expertly layers Balearic electronics atop a killer bassline, jungle sound effects and dense, calypso-influenced nu-disco groove. It's this second track that really makes the EP, and suggests that there will be more to come from Roland Tings in 2015.
