Bio

With production credits across a range of international rap acts and a neck full of hardcore tour passes, Up Late is the synthesis of Max Pasalic's eclectic musical background and DIY ethos. Drawing on elements from emo, pop and rap, Up Late flirts between infectious vocal melodies to floor-shaking bass tones. Proudly sharing tonal qualities with genre iconoclasts like Post Malone and Nothing,Nowhere and sonics from album's like Kanye's Yeezus or Bring Me The Horizon's Amo, Up Late is a sound unto its own.

After launching in May of 2020 with an entry into triple J Unearthed's DIY Supergroup competition, Up Late immediately shot up the Unearthed charts and scored an honourable mention for their entry among 900+ others. Shortly after the release of follow up single 'FRIENDS', Up Late was named one of the "ten most exciting discoveries of 2020" by triple j and featured as one of the few artists in Unearthed's "five-star club".

On following cut 'u left me on read' music media caught wind of the Up Late charm with the likes of Pilerats classing the project as "a breakout force" and Music Feeds calling Up Late "2020's rule breakers".

Up Late's latest track 'alone' builds on his genre-bending foundation. Leaning on his rnb vocal stylings until a crescendo into a distorted drill beat flip - alone is a cataclysm of influence and ability.

The mix of stadium emo attitude with pop aesthetics works well for Up Late. Heavy on the vibes, heavier on the feelings.
