There is a line where the dark fuses with the light, the surreal with the sublime, the graceful with the powerful; it is within this line that Tara Brooks has carved out her truly distinct sound. Whether playing at an intimate club, a dark underground warehouse, a packed festival or a magical sunrise deep in the Burning Man Playa, Tara's music envelopes the crowd, stirring them with deep funky grooves, hypnotic & trippy rhythms, acidy deep techno, soulful, and haunting melodies. Behind the decks, her passion and love for music is contagious.
Struck by the power of the music and the loving vibe of the scene, Tara was destined to be a part of it. Learning on vinyl, Tara picked up her first record in 2007 and hasn't looked back since. With her unique sounds, loving energy and fierce work ethic leading the charge, Tara has played some of the most respected venues, both domestic and abroad including The BPM Festival (Mexico), Katerblau (Berlin) Sisyphos (Berlin), Blue Marlin (Ibiza) Acid Sundays (Ibiza), The Brooklyn Mirage (New York), Flash (DC) DNSOF (Miami), Lightning in a Bottle, Sound (Los Angeles), PublicWorks (SF) and of course a little place she calls Home, Burning Man.
The Dutch/American artist The Scumfrog has been a household name in the underground Dance Music scene since 2000. His brand is known for many traits; music production, musicianship, DJing, featured vocalist, music coach, radio host, and remixing.
From his timeless early works like Watersong and We Love You, to dubbed-out remixes of songs by mainstream artists like Kylie Minogue, Annie Lennox, Missy Elliott, to collaborations with David Bowie, Sting, and Cyndi Lauper (resulting in a Grammy nomination), he has been featured on virtually every prominent independent Dance label, from Bedrock to 1605, from Positiva to Knee Deep In Sound.
With his roots firmly planted in the experimental side of Dance Music and Electronica, The Scumfrog toured the world many times over with his unique DJ sets. He is also a staple at the Burning Man festival, where he performs his annual sunrise and sunset rituals to his devoted followers. The Scumfrog hosts club nights called M.B.T.S. (Most Below The Surface) where he usually plays the entire night, and he is in production with a new project featuring classical musicians.
John Dill has emerged as one of New York’s favorite underground DJs and beloved club personas. During this time John has already shared the decks with Dj luminaries such as Lee Burridge, Marques Wyatt, Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Tom Middleton and Satoshi Tomiie to name but a few.
Whether it is the vast main floor of Verboten Parties, the beaches of Punta Del Este & Puerto Rico or the dusty Playa during Burning Man, John knows how to work the decks to keep the booties shakin’. John caught the dance bug in 1994 but found his Sound when he hit the white isle of Ibiza in 2000. Since then he has held residencies in New York’s most prestigious house havens such as Le Souk Sunday Sessions, Sullivan Room, Movida, Crobar and the infamous Robot Heart parties. Djing aside John is an accomplished graphic designer and photographer!
