fundamentals ep

Tara Rodgers (also known as Analog Tara) grew up listening to jazz records and learning to make recordings with a hi-fi cassette deck. Over the last 20 years, she has had a wide-ranging and prolific career as a multi-instrumentalist composer and music scholar. amsThe new Fundamentals EP is her first release under the Analog Tara moniker in 15 years, delivering funky techno crafted from analog sound sources.

“You don’t need to know much about techno for Fundamentals to register as something special… A beautifully austere, four-track exercise in quality control and rigorous decision… it is assertive work, bold in the precision and subtlety it takes to mix such signals with thrill and grace and restraint.” — NPR Music

“Top to bottom, this is well-crafted dance music — the kind that makes the floor feel sturdier beneath your feet while still allowing your head to get all-the-way loose.” — The Washington Post

“Rodgers’ dance floor material is warm and immersive. Body music from a heady source.” — Resident Advisor

“Sweet sweet jams… both powerful and soothing, darting effortlessly from pulsing grooves to ethereal spaces.” — Bandcloud
