I started Tango in 2008, I became addicted almost immediately, practicing and going to Milongas became my favourite activities. The passion for the rhythms and history kept me hooked to this dance and culture.
My first Tango DJ experience was in 2010, when a friend challenged me to play at his Milonga. Ever since i’ve been exploring Orchestras and creating stories with tandas.
I would describe my sets as balanced between soft and rhythmical, building tandas in a crescendo, finishing with the best song to give the dancers the best ending.
One of my favourite Orchestras is Pugliese, both to listen to it and to dance it, it is so strong with emotions. I am still working on not playing too much of D’Arienzo, that’s my guilty pleasure.
