I prefer the term "musicalizador" over "DJ" since I don't mix music. Like every musicalizador, my main concern is to match tango dancers' needs, whether they need to warm up, to walk, to jump around, to rock, to cuddle, to relax, to chill or anything else :) Also like every musicalizador, I have a personal profile. Most of all I like lively, joyful and powerful music. My aim is to see people smiling, enjoying themselves and having a blast. I believe most of this kind of Tango music is to be found in the Edad de Oro.
Tango music needs to be danceable and interesting to dance. It sounds banal, so banal and so much taken for granted that sometimes it's also forgotten as concept. A set needs to have a structure and needs to fit together. At the same time music needs to vary during the night, so it never gets boring and never repeats itself.
I am an active musicalizador in Berlin, playing regularly at some of the main milongas of the city, as well as at international festivals and marathons. I also co-organize of two Berlin milongas, Max & Moritz and Loca.
