DJ Team


Konrad Krynski

Konrad Krynski spends way too much time researching tango music. On Thursdays you can find him on a popular Thursday milonga in Budapest that he organizes, on weekends DJing and wine-tasting at international tango events in many countries. As a DJ he will give you a range of famous classical tango orchestras from mid-20ies till late 70ies, spiced up with rare yet exciting danceable pieces. In short, he’ll rip his heart out and give it to you.

Asya Moiseeva

My name is Asya Moiseeva. I'm from Saint-Petersburg (Russia). My experience in tango DJ-ing began in April 2014. I started to put music at regular milongas of Saint-Petersburg and later at milongas of Moscow and gradually began to receive invitations to events. During this time, was able to work on many marathons -Kaleidoscope 2015, El huracan 2016, pre-party Kaleidoscope 2016, Crimea tango marathon - Yalta 2016, O' Cerasiello 2016 in Napoli, Remolino 2016-2017, Flores de Invierno 2017, Tango Viejo Tallinn marathon 2017, Saint-Petersburg Tango marathon 2017, Frankfurt Tango Marathon 2017, Tango Jam 2017 in Hamburg. The whole of last year, was a resident of the oldest milongas in Saint-Petersburg - Casa Latina. Now, I live in Paris and DJ at local milongas.

I love not only tango, but music in General... I love jazz, play guitar and ukulele, little bit of saxophone. I think that music education and overall love of music helps me in DJing.

Jens-Ingo Brodesser

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 vaste and in high resolution for best sound perception. I play mainly from the 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.

Julian Ingram

It doesn't feel like it, but my very first tango steps were taken two decades ago...and even then, it was the music that drew me to it first, and not the dance! I used to go my local milongas in those first years simply to sit and listen to music because I had no idea where to but tango authentic tango music; it was still the 1990s. Before iTunes -and even local music stores didn't have tango. So...I sat and learned more about the music through seeing its affects.

Through the years I've been fortunate to combine my background as a professional musician and knowledge of music in general, to being a tango DJ. Treating each tanda as an miniature opera within itself is what I think of while DJing with like: How does the tanda develop? What does each “Act” (tango) say, and how can we find the essential mood of the tanda in an evolved way from the first to the last? The orchestras tell us these things through their tangos. I'm just honored that I get an opportunity to represent them through the music I choose.
