Neo DJ's presentation:
DJane Mari Olschewski (GER) from Hamburg. Mari lives in Hamburg Music and creativity has always been important in her life and she has been dancing Tango for 24 years. Because she was looking for more variety and wanted to dance to the music that touched her more personally, she became a DJane. Creating a playlist is a creative act for her.
She has her own "Molonga - MOdern miLONGA" and plays regularly in and around Hamburg, as well as at various national and international Marathons and Neo-Events. She has been part of the DJ team at NeoTangoRave and Phantastango for 10 years.
Her music is very versatile, Jazz, Electro, Blues, Folk, Rock, Ambient, Oriental, Neo-Classical, Contemporary Tango....
Mari lives by the water and the musical mood at her Milongas is like a wave, always in motion.
For Mari, Neo-Tango means: listening, getting involved, immersing yourself, trying out, discovering, not having to be perfect and having fun.
DJ Thierry (FRA) - Thierry is above all a creative dancer who “lives” the music. 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 which brings him to Neo tango and Fusion. 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),Neo Tango Meissen (NTM), but also the Toulouse Fusion weekend (Fusion dance festival). He DJ'd all across Europe: Toulouse, Bruges, Amsterdam, Lyon, Rome, Athens, Gent, Tangopostale, Berlin, Lille, Barcelona, Meissen...
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).
