Wolfgang has been dancing tango with great enthusiasm, passion and musicality since 2006 and started djing in 2016 to dive even deeper into the music. Besides djing in local milongas in Germany, he got the opportunity to DJ in many European countries.
The music of the 30s and 40s, but also some of the 50s and 20s, are his preference, trying to maintain a good energy during the milonga and always staying in touch with the needs of the dancers.
“I am constantly striving for the perfect harmony of rhythmical and lyrical tandas, spiced with an appropriate amount of drama. These three main styles have to blend amicably into each other without creating harsh contrasts. Since every orchestra has it’s distinctive style, it will never get boring or monotonous.
Danceability is my primary concern. Theoretically it is possible to dance to anything, but not every music is equally suited for the social dance floor. Features like speed, audibility of a constant beat, complexity of layers, predictability of the melody and usage of irregular patterns play a role in choosing the songs and depend on the general dance level of the audience.”
“This is my favourite milonga cocktail: 5 cl thirties & forties each, 1 spoonful of fifties, a pinch of sextetts and 1 Pugliese-cherry. Served with cream and pepper. No ice! Enjoy with tasty cortinas – and a heartfelt embrace.”
»Knowing and feeling the music is for me a very important part of dancing tango. And this led me on my way to DJing. I now try to convey the beauty of mainly Golden Age tangos to the gentle embrace and smooth movement of dancers.«
“I offer traditional music with Tandas and Cortinas from period between the 1920’s to the late 50’s. The most important thing is to feel what is happening on the dance floor, and to adapt the musical selection according to the mood of the dancers. My intention is to keep the energy in the room intact by encouraging the emotion of the group as well as the intimacy of each dancer.
With being myselve a Milonguero style dancer for the past 20 years, I have developed a dynamic musicality influenced by the ‘golden period of Argentinian Classical Tango. My dynamic program is subtle and delicate and conquers a wide audience. The purpose : develop the emotion of each individual and energise the group on the dance floor.”
“For me as a DJ the best moments are when my music enchants the dancers, so that the entire dance floor moves as one. For over 20 years I take every set as a unique challenge, from small intimate milongas up to Encuentros and Festivals, to make tango lovers fall in love with this music again and again. From the early thirties to the mid fifties I will take you on a muscial voyage, always making sure that the necessary beat and rhythm is accompanied by beautiful melodies.”
