Neo DJ's presentation:
DJ Thierry (FRA) - Thierry is above all a creative dancer who “lives” the music. He practiced many social dances( (swing, blues, salsa, tango...) before starting to DJ Neo tango . Of course, he loves tango from the golden age, but what makes him vibrate is to open, enrich, mix practices toward new musical and corporeal horizons which brings him to Neo. Nice melodies, emotion and changes in rythms and intensity are thierry's music markers. Thierry is co-organizer of several festivals: Neo Tango Toulouse (TNT), Neo Tango Bruges (NTB), Neo Tango Amsterdam (NTA),and Neo Tango Meissen (NTM), but also the Toulouse Fusion weekend (Fusion dance festival). He DJ'd all over Europe ; Toulouse, Bruges, Amsterdam, Lyon, Rome, Athens, Gent, Tangopostale, Berlin, Lille, Praha, mannheim...

DJ Anna (Russia) - Anna (Russia) has been in music since childhood, and her playing ranges from piano classics to rock music. She fell in love with tango music in 1998, and it took her more than a decade to start dancing instead of just listening. But it was worth it. She loves both the music of the Golden era and the Neo tango music, and she hopes that someday they can coexist harmoniously. "Music flows in me and I flow with music. Every set I play is live and depends on the dance floor right here, right now. I love that kind of continuous flow of music, that takes dancers through time and a wide range of emotions. I am in love with the process - of searching and trying something new, changing and combining the music sounds into a stream at the console, feeling the dancers’ energy... The only frustrating thing is that there are things I really want to dance to, but I never have an opportunity. So I dance by myself while mixing.”
DJ Phil (FRA) -I started as a Hard Rock DJ in the 80’s, then DJ for Blues nights. Blues lead me to Tango Neo of course, and in 2015 I started Nueva Guardia, my Neolonga in Toulouse.
I like to make people dance on nice melodies.
I love to invite DJs to my milonga, organize events our baby the TNT is healthy, his little Amsterdam brother will celebrate his second year in 2020. I was also "father" of the Nocturna (Tango way).
DJ Fabio (ITA) It was in his hometown of Naples that Fabio discovered Tango in 2009. As a yoga teacher, he has been working for years on this union between body and mind through the power of music to create moments where time stops and you are transported into another dimension. From 2010 he began a personal search for the discovery of modern rhythms and melodies (jazz, ethnic, classical, pop, rock, rap, indie, modern orchestras etc...) that can be interpreted using the codes of tango through all kind of music. In 2013 he Came to settle in Nice, he imported his Neo tango musicality and gave a new breath to the life of Tango with his milongas where trad tango meets alternative tango and barriers are erased by emotions. He participated as a DJ in many international festivals and marathons in Europe (France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Finland) choosing to tell, through his musical selections, a story made of sensitivity and emotions, allowing dancers to freely interpret their feelings.
DJ Ralph (UK) - Born in Manchester UK - but living for the past 60 years in Bruges, Belgium. After +20 years Tango Classico, having played for more the 250 practica’s every first Sunday of the month it was time for a new challenge.
The past 10 years I’ve been using Neo - Nuevo - Non & Alternative music in a mix and when in 2020 Covid did strike, I had the chance to virtually meet so many inspiring Neo Tango DJ’s whilst playing music-on-air for a Neo community(Thanks Elio, Hubert and so many others). This was for me the moment to jump deeper into this music& dance style, I’m always trying to find music that gives me “a good belly” feeling, remains danceable and gives vibes on the dance floor.
Oh yeah, of the record - I love Belgium beer, especially Duvel en Brugse Zot…
