LA label TAR's semi-regular free EP series returns to the fold with a new effort from hometown producer D.E.. "Tyvn" opens the three-track Samadhi Vol. 1 EP by loosely cobbling together a collection of disparate rhythmic elements—thick hats pulse atop the mix while overdriven kicks rumble below, leaving plenty of space for D.E.'s assortment of snaps, claps, and clicks to explore the rest of the sonic field. The SoCal producer's assemblage of percussion is joined only by a sparse collection of additional elements, as the spacious beat implements a handful of pads and echoed vocal snippets to ride out its two-plus-minute run. The rest of D.E.'s EP for TAR is now free to download via the label's Bandcamp.
