TANGO DJ blog


During a DJ-set I select music from my collection which fits best for providing an interesting dancing experience. I try to catch the mood of the moment by observing the dancers and translate this feedback into the tanda. My tango collection is quite waste and in high resolution for best sound perception. I play mainly from the Guardia Nueva and Epoca de Oro repertoire but there are no limitations, everything is possible. If I feel that a newer song fits the moment and it’s dancable I play it. In my opinion it is very important to provide a variation in musical style between the tandas and to develop a tanda flow for having an enjoyable milonga.

DJ YERPUN
FRIDAY SALON

21.00 - 02.00 friday March 29
De Vereeniging

As a child Yerpun used to play in the garden while his grandfather was listening to tango music. After many years of oblivion he visited the milongas of Buenos Aires and fell in love with the music they played. He listens to tango with the ear of a musician en feels the music with the heart of a milonguero. With the knowledge of the feeling that each orchestra produces, he weaves an evening rich of ambients, which fluently passing by in the exact moment. Yerpun gives importance to create a milonga that has the same quality as the milongas have in Buenos Aires.

DJ ARTHUR
GRAN NOCHE FUSION ROOM

De Vereeniging
saturday march 30

DJ Arthur is tangodanser in hart en nieren. Hij weet wat dansers raakt. En zo draait hij. Een mooie mix van oud en nieuw, met soms een uitspatting. Een mooie avond, noemen dansers zijn salons. Sinds 2002 heeft hij honderden salons gedraaid varierend van kleinschalige oefensalons voor de leerlingen tot grootschalige evenementen zoals Tangomagia en de optredens van Bajofondo en Narcotango in Amsterdam.

Dj Arthur is als geen ander opzoek naar de grenzen van de tango. Hij is een van de pioniers die speuren naar andere muziek waar je tango op kunt dansen. Hij kan een keuze maken uit meer dan 16.000 nummers waarvan de helft traditionele tango en de andere helft alternatieve muziek is.

OPENING NIGHT march 27
EL CORTE
& TANGOCAFE
De Vereeniging

 

 

I started dancing tango in 1991 and immediately fell in love with tango music. From my earliest dancing days, I have been collecting tango music. As my collection grew bigger and bigger, my urge to do more with the music also grew. In 2002 I started DJ-ing in El Corte.

Both as a dancer and as a DJ, I am a child of El Corte. In DJ-ing I adapted the El Corte style of DJ-ing; which is that from time to time traditional dance music from the thirties, forties and fifties is mixed with special (non tango and alternative tango) music to break the habits of the dancers. So don't be surprised when I play something that is not tango at all, but is tango danceable after all :).

I aim at a wavelike flow of energy in a milonga, building up tension and energy, releasing it with something special and then starting to work up to the next climax. I do not play cortinas (pause musics that seperate the blocks of tangos, valses, milongas, --etc.), because I 
prefer a continuous flow from beginning till end of the milonga.

PETER CORVO  

TANGOFUSION NITE MARCH 28

Started Dj`ing at party`s when he was 13 years old.

In the early 90`s this became a part time job in a club, as one of the pioneers of new beat and acid. In 2001 he started DJ`ing tango at La Luna Antwerp. Now you can hear him as one of the resident DJ`s at La Tangueria Brussels , La Luna Antwerp and Cuartito Azul Rotterdam. You could also hear him play last year at the aniversary party of Flor de Tango, at the Amsterdam Marathon, the Halle marathon (Berlin) etc…

His style is playing with a great respect for classic tango DJ`ing using tandas and cortinas, always looking at, and playing for the dancers. At certain venues he also plays neo tango and nuevo tango, often mixed as one neo trip.

Stefan Wimmer

El Corte goodbye salon

Sunday april 24

After spending 1 year in Munich dancing nearly every night 

he was ready to look for something more and he found it in another city in another country: Nijmegen - Holland. There 

he stopped taking classes for a while and started dancing - 

all night & day long. And there he learned that there are 

mainly 3 components which make a Tango a Tango: 
the partner you're dancing with the music you're dancing to 

the other people who are dancing in the same room with 

you

The most important thing since then is for him
'not what you dance but how you dance it'.

 

Stefan was once asked from TJ colleagues from El Corte 

what his favorites are and he only could give them the

"favorites of the day" because there are so many wonderful songs in the Tango that he falls in love with different songs every day :

Solo Compasión- Orquesta Típica Victor Con Angel Vargas 
El Paladín - Osvaldo Pugliese 
El Buey Solo - Ricardo Tanturi 
Tango Guapo - Lucio Demare Con Roberto Arrieta 
Te Quiero Ver Escopeta - Enrique Rodriguez

MICHAEL SMITH

TANGOCAFE friday & Saturday

Michael recently emigrated to Holland. An enrichment for the local Arnhem - Nijmegen tangoscene since he is a very respected and well apreciated tango DJ for many years.

The starting point was in the UK discovering tango then the music and obsessively collecting as much as possible.
Then being frustrated by not hearing enough of the music I actually liked. Now based in NL and lucky enough to Dj in Flor de Fango and El Corte. Over the years so many tracks... Swapped, gifted [scrounged], downloaded and imported from BA
Keeping the collection contained is a big task [it regularly goes out of control] There's just so much to discover. The project is to 'let out' all the hours of consideration and cataloguing in a way that 'works' To match the music to the time, the place, the people, the emotion, is a big challenge.Very firmly rooted in pre 50's tango but with some alternatives sprinkled in.

Michael will give us joy and pain (full) feet on friday and saturday tangocafes in de Vereeniging.

 

DJ SASHA
Tangocafe DJ friday 12.00 - 16.00
I seek to evoke feeling in the dancers, smoothly spanning the diapason of human emotion present in tango and in life. Also, I aim to only play honest music, which speaks from the heart and to the heart. Being a milonguero dancer, I play a Buenos Aires style tanda scheme (with acoustic cortinas), where songs are matched not only by orchestra and singer, but also in the colour and emotion of the music (and lyrics).

My bread and butter are Canaro, D’Arienzo, Di Sarli, Troilo, Fresedo, Biagi, Donato, Rodriguez, Tanturi, Orquesta Tipica Victor, Laurenz, Lomuto, De Angelis, Calo, Pugliese and D’Agostino. To spice things up, I will add Firpo, De Caro, Gobbi, Ortiz, Garcia, Demare, Malerba, Carabelli, Filiberto, Maglio or Maffia. Besides DJing and dancing, I share my love for tango music and its poetry on my blog: www.eltangoteespera.blogspot.com
