RB Deep in the Mix: John Digweed Transitions with Tara Brooks

Tara Brooks grew up in Southern California, where her passion for electronic dance music was cultivated at an early age. Both her parents were musically inclined, with a father who played guitar and a mother who played both piano and harp and sang. She dived into the 90s grunge scene head-first, favoring artists like Nirvana, Incubus, Tool, Stone Temple Pilots, among others. She was introduced to electronic music and was immediately blown away by the variations in beats, sounds, and melodies, so she turned to Djing. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Carl Cox, Sasha & Digweed, Victor Calderone, and more, Tara began creating her own music, which evolved into what is now considered dark, techno house.

For this week’s RB Deep in the Mix, get further acquainted with Tara Brooks’ unique sound with her guest mix for John Digweed’s Transitions show.

With funky, tribal elements and a dark, ethereal sound, this hour-long mix encapsulates Brooks’ quintessential sound.
