“While I may be described as dark, haunting and healing,
I would say I strive for my music to deliver anemotional feeling.
One that triggers happiness, love and an uplifting mood, yet is soulful, edgy and dark.”
The North American scene has had a massive resurgence, and Tara Brooks has cemented her place at the forefront.
Having become one of the new breed of iconic DJ’s has been a steady ascent from the Underground to performing at some of the most respected parties.Tara has been on the bill for such renowned events such as The BPM Festival, The Cityfox Experience-NYC and LA, Desert Hearts, Do Not Sit on the Furniture-Miami, Coachella, SXM, Lightning in a Bottle, Public Works-SF, Robot Heart, Sound-LA, Space-Miami, Ultra Music Festival, WMC, Flash-DC,Kater Blau-Berlin, Return to Rio-Sydney, Output-NYC.
Her career started like many, collecting and lugging around vinyl, going to events and being a part of the movement in Los Angeles. It was these seminal moments, as well as being a resident at the now infamous Desert Hearts festival that gave Tara the experience necessary to have the fundamental skill sets needed for her career as a touring DJ.
Being a DJ first, it was the next logical step in her path to express herself by making her own music, Tara’s ethos is to help and heal others thru sound, to do something to give forward to others, and utilize her passion and gifts.
Tara started her production path with friends, over the years her hard work, experimentation and risk taking created her now trade mark sound.
Tara’s sounds spread worldwide and she had attracted the discerning ear from John Digweed. She has shared the stage with luminous legend and this led to her creating “Eunoia”, her first EPon Digweed’s seminal label- Bedrock.
The release has received critical acclaim, resulting in interviews, reviews, and high placement in the Beatport top 100. Her recent outings in 2019 are for such labels as Akbal, Get Physical, and Kattermukke, she found full expression by tapping into her experiences playing underground festivals.
Tara has a rich tapestry to her sets, and they cover so many different moods and soundscapes, her sets are an emotional explosion of a modern and futuristic fusing of genres. There is a range and love for various genres that takes the listener on a storied journey that thinks outside the box by connecting to the audience in a very personal and emotive way. Her style is a true mirror of Tara as a person, emotional, sensitive and full of fire.
DJ Erin E
Erin E brings an ear for unique sounds to her energetic and genre-bending dj sets. Integrating global gems with sometimes heavy, sometimes heavenly percussive and melodic force, she strips back dance music to something we all can relate to. Constantly searching for the essence of the sound – be it deep & dub techno, electronic folklore, house or beyond- she cultivates a bassy dancefloor (and headphone) experience that transcends stereotype.
She is currently working on an ongoing series of place-based ‘immersive’ mixes, created and performed in wild spaces alone or with a very small crew of intimate listeners.
Playing & sampling her original live native american flute, didjeridoo, shakers and myriad of trinkets, she sneaks authentic sound into unexpected places.
Based in Santa Fe, NM, Erin E loves, above all, creating the space for a transformative, positive experience through music and creative community.
