DJ

Stefan OK


I am an internationally travelling Tango-DJ from Halle (Germany) and I played more than 150 sets in 14 countries on 3 continents.

My work as DJ is influenced by traditional Milongas with Tandas and Cortinas from Buenos Aires, Italy and Germany. On the other hand I grew up in a very creative German community with the idea of "everything goes" in Tango. After several years just dancing and listening, I started DJing in 2009. Since that time I work with a good base of traditional tangos. I love tangos from the 20's and 30's with a strong rhythmic structure. During my time in Buenos Aires and Berlin I discovered also the romantic melodies of the 40's and 50's. My favourite orchestras are Di Sarli and D'Arienzo. In my weekly Milonga I prefer a good mix of rhythm and melody to serve all kinds of dancers.

What is "Live-DJing"?


Everytime I play I'm a "Live-DJ", that means i choose from my large archive of Tangos, that grows almost everyday, the perfect tango for the particular moment. I love introducing myself in the mood of the "pista" to give the dancers what they need. I'm constantly working to provide a good soundquality, a careful and sometimes sophisticated or suprising choice, of well-known or rare tangos. But all this work has to be done in advance, because the milonga is not the place to be a sound-enginneer or a tango-collector, it's the place to create and react to emotions, therefore a fixed playlist is absolutely impossible and choosing the songs one by one very is central to my work.

Listen to Stefan OK @ Tanda of the Week!

I'm playing every week in Halle in the milongas Milonga Ferdinande, Cafe de los Anhaltinos, Studilonga or in Mirjam's Tango-Studio.
