Disillusioned by temporal and spatial confines, Roland Tings aka Mr. Rohan Newman is a musical relativist here to incite a non-revolution. Working as a freelance graphic designer, a burgeoning Melbourne club scene and a ventilation leak of a beat-making neighbor’s tracks sparked the former emo-head’s purchase of a microKORG and a pedestrian interface. During a revelatory Indonesian vacation a few years later, the embryonic fragments of uncertain musical ideas crystallized into the synth arpeggio driven, percussive-sticky house spacescapes of what would become his first single, Milky Way (Sep. 2012). After some unanticipated positive reinforcement from 100% Silk, Newman shut himself in to bust out the rest of an EP, producing a collage of recognizable motifs from golden ages past – from the “primal pulses of early Chicago house to the shimmering keys of euro pioneers” – amidst a charmingly simple tapestry of dreamy atmospherics. Here’s a peek into the inner-workings of the mind behind it all, from the man himself.
To label Policy’s music as ‘house’ misses the point entirely – it careens smoothly through territories occupied by jazz, avant-garde, electronic, latin groove, and Afro-beat, carefully selecting the hallmarks of each genre and delivering it as an elegant, yet dance-able, collection of moments.Read More
