Roland Tings "Floating on a Salt Lake"
Melbourne-based producer Roland Tings (a.k.a. Rohan Newman) has been known to place more effort on promoting his sound through his live sets than committing to a body of recorded work. However, the established producer does appear ready to make some moves in that direction, with his "Who U Love" 12'' via Internasjonal on Monday, April 21. Before then, Newman has passed along the alluring b-side cut "Floating on a Salt Lake," a jacking slab of titillating house that can't help but to seduce listeners into the depths of its hefty bass and sedating chords. During the course of its seven-minute run, the tune methodically builds before takeing a tantalizing breath, diving into complete silence only to bring back an even deeper bass that guides the remainder of the tune to its climax.
