Yarden dropped his first project ‘The One Who Descends’ TOWD EP via Etins Records / 0207 Def Jam, named after the meaning of his name in Hebrew. The project starts with ‘Wait’, an easy track that introduces the listener to Yarden’s addictive sound. The song establishes Yarden’s fascination with time and how he uses the concept to explore wider subjects like relationships, personal connection & freedom. ‘Divine’ sees the young star comfortable at a faster pace, demonstrating his versatility. The artfully compact project finishes with the beautiful closer, ‘Pressure’, an emotionally reflective track that’s made to calm inner troubles.
The two-year process of putting together his debut EP ‘The One Who Descends’ with Etins Records has moulded Yarden’s creative process to provide a five-track offering that champions his Afrobeats influence and proves his unique place in the colorful fabric of Nigeria’s musical landscape. With production from upcoming homegrown talent and only two features from friends, Swayvee and Morien, there’s an intentional decision to work with those integral to his journey before reaching out to the international superstars only a phone call away at this point.
