Our 2018 were:
Stephan Resch - Auckland -Fri night DJ
Stephan started DJing in Auckland in 2008. He is the resident DJ for TangoClub Auckland and regularly provides the music at Pasion por Tango studio. Stephan's enthusiasm for tango music has resulted in a steadily growing tango collection, a great familiarity with the history of tango and a keen eye for the musical needs of the dancers. During his recent travels, he was invited to DJ in some of the most highly regarded tango salons of Europe such as "Dom Kino" (Moscow), "Tangoloft" and "El Amateur" (Stuttgart) and "Roter Salon" (Berlin). He also presents the most enjoyable lectures of the history of tango orchestras most recently at the NZ Tango Festival and the Sydney Tango Salon Festival 2014.
Deb Waltenberg - Christchurch - Sat Night DJ
"Hola everyone, I became a DJ from my love of tango music and dance, I am a regular DJ at the twisted hop Milonga in Christchurch and I have been a DJ for several overseas teachers and other tango events. My passion for tango music grew from my trips to Buenos Aires both dancing and listening to the beauty of tango at the traditional milonga halls. As a tango dancer I like to feel emotion on all levels, so when I DJ I love to see the tango orchestras and singers work their magic on the dancers. My preference is for the more traditional orchestras and of course I have my favourites but I'm very mindful of playing music for all tango dancers. For me when I DJ I try to take the dancers on a journey so I look forward to you joining me in Auckland where we can share the journey together."
Deb has also Djed at my other Seasonal Tango events Summer Tango in Nelson and Winter Tango in Hanmer
