Beats by Beat: Tangerine breaks away from her “hectic” norm with a blissful soundscape

By Jacob Nazroo

Welcome to Beats by Beat, our mix series for electronic music lovers. Head here if you missed the previous Beats by Beat mix, produced by MARSH LONG.

Ambient music seems to have resurged in Melbourne in the last year or so. The lockdown is no doubt largely to blame. High energy and club music just didn’t make as much sense to many people in isolation, forced into quietness and left with much time to introspect.

Tangerine’s venture into ambient soundscapes for this episode of Beats by Beat is another example of a musician creating a mix attuned to what she calls the “smaller side” of her musical personality.

“When I’m in a particular mood and when my ears are a bit tired of listening to hectic music or working on hectic music, I really appreciate the softness of ambient and more emotional types of electronic music,” she told us.

Her recent gigs have mostly been park parties; 8am slots after long nights prepping. With her live sets – one for Melbourne Music Week – Tangerine is building a solid reputation in Melbourne and Canberra.

Check out her beautiful mix for us on our Soundcloud page and tune in to the interview at the end, in which we talk about her entrance into electronic music production, making different music for different moods and more.
