DJ Stefan OK

Stefan OK

I am an internationally travelling Tango-DJ from Halle (Germany) with more than 200 sets and invitations to 24 countries on 6 continents.

My Sets are mostly influenced by traditional Milongas with Tandas and Cortinas from Buenos Aires, Italy and Germany. I am known for my excellent timing and the creation of deeply touching dynamics with an repertoire of Edo plus X :-)

I grew up in a very creative German community with the idea of "everything goes" in Tango. At the climax of the Tango Nuevo around 2010 this was pretty much the case in many tango scenes. After several years of dancing and listening, I started DJing in 2009. Since that time my DJ-Sets are created around the classics from the "Epoca de Oro", the golden time of Tango Argentino from 1937 to 1947. I was among the first DJs in Germany playing with Tandas and Cortinas in that time.

Extensive travels to Buenos Aires from 2011 to 2015 with DJ-Sets and frequent visits of all mayor milongas made me understand the reality of the Milonga Portena beyond myths and idealiziations created all over the world. My beginning international career as a Marathon- and Festival-DJ in 2013 allows me until today to co-create european tango culture. 

As a collector of the whole History of Tango Argentino I love to listen tangos from the 20's and 30's with a strong rhythmic structure. I sometimes use them to spice up my DJ-Sets. 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. I prefer a complementary 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.

Update: Solo Vinilos - The Vinyl DJ-Set for your Milonga

Since 2019 I am able to offer Vinyl-DJ Sets on a international level. I've got a Vinyl Collection of almost 350 LP's mostly High Quality Editions from Japan and all the technical Equipment that is needed. Listening to the Vinyls is a unique experience. The warm sound of the records and vinyl editions are very often superior to the MP3 Versions that most DJs are playing. Besides this the sheer presence of the turntables in the Milonga is appreciated by the dancers and creates tooching moments of the connection with the music. Learn more about the Vinyls and get in touch with me for the Conditions of the Vinyl DJ-Set for your Milonga.
