He's coming from swing and blues universe before falling in love with tango. Dancer since 1998, he waited until 2016 to start offering his own musical programming as a DJ. Of course, he loves tango from the golden age, but what makes him vibrating is to open , enrich, mix practices toward new musical and corporeal horizons

He Neo tango DJ'd in Toulouse, Bruges, Amsterdam,Lyon,Rome, Athens, Geent, Tangopostale but is also Blues DJ and fusion DJ.
DJane Saskia (NL) is purely a Neotango DJ. Therefore in her sets she uses all kinds of music, if danceable. From the Middle Ages, classical to tango, from traditional Argentinian folk music to rock, jazz, blues...music from the West to the East, North to South. Original, covers or remixes. She likes lyrical music, music that tells a story, with some drama, some gloominess and several layers in the music to play with.
Her sets are about serving the dancers by facilitating music that can carry and ignite that tango connection.
She started dancing tango coming from Contact Improvisation, wanting to learn Contact Tango, but got bitten by the traditional tango virus. It is a legacy she really honors. But her love for contemporary music and the playfulness of Neotango keeps pulling at me. Therefore her mantra is: “ Same soul, different sounds”
She started DJ-ing in October 2018, the year she and Ezequiel Sannucci founded La Neo Amsterdam.
During the lockdowns she played on regularly for Neotango TV. From there on it went fast. She played at multiple Marathons and neolongas in the Netherlands, Essen (Germany), Toulouse, Nantes and Lyon (Fr.) and now has her own monthly Neolonga “Flor de Neo” in Arnhem.

Neo VJ's presentation :
Philippe (FRA) - Philippe Gauthier is fascinated by movement and the harmony emerging from the dance floor, he seeks to magnify it. As a VJ his performance is purely live where the dancers and music both are intertwined to give life to interactive visuals.
