DT857 – Tara Brooks


The hypnotic & eclectic sounds of Tara Brooks have made a special impact since she picked up her first record in 2007. Her unique selections & brilliant programming captivate dance floors leaving them with an open mind & heart. She seamlessly mixes a fusion of house, electro, acid, & electronica, to funky, trippy, & soulful techno, emotional uplifting grooves, & breakbeats.

From intimate settings at legendary clubs like TV Lounge & Marble Bar (Detroit), Kater Blau, Watergate and Sisyphos (Berlin), Output (NYC), Public Works (SF), Stereo (Montreal), Space (Miami), and Flash Club (DC) to major festivals including The BPM Festival, EDC Las Vegas, Lightning In A Bottle, SXM, Rakastella, Coachella, Desert Hearts, Return to Rio, and Rainbow Serpent Festival – Shes built a worldwide following from her legendary sets at Burning Man. You can find her performing at Robot Heart, Disco Knights, Pink Mammoth, Distrikt, & Carl Cox’s Playground. She has established herself as an always-evolving experimental artist with an out-of-the-box track selection that never fails to leave her audience with an incessant lust for more.

As a Los Angeles native, Tara found her calling within the LA underground dance scene. She has since propelled her productions forward to pave a path as a respected and world-renowned artist. From “Eunoia”, her first EP on John Digweed’s iconic Bedrock label, to releases on Katermukke, Exotic Refreshment, Get Physical, Balance Music, Kindisch, and Desert Hearts Records – to name a few – her evolving productions prove her unique style is a true mirror of herself: passionate, emotional, risky, fiery, fun, & authentic.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
