Australian music producer Roland Tings (AKA Rohan Newman) rolls out another spectacular track with Up Close, which dropped in early October on Sony/Cascine. It follows up the passionate single Always Rushing.
Based on the strength of his debut EP, Tings was signed by Prins Thomas, someone who knows a thing or two about justified music buzz. Tings will be releasing his album Salt Water in the near future.
Up Close is one of those flowing numbers that keep the nightclub dancefloor vibe going through the early hours. It’s filled to the brim with non-stop shaken and echoed percussion, spacey synths twists, and a tightly bouncing beat, with light vocals drifting in from guest artist Alyss.
