“I have been DJing since 2015, playing regularly at the main milongas in Oslo.
My goal when DJing is to create the right mood with a balance of energy and emotion. I play music that I love, and always improvise during the set.
My heart belongs to traditional tango, mainly from the golden age. Favourite orquestas are Troilo, Pugliese and D’Arienzo”

“My musical selection reflects my deep affection for Golden Age tango music and the poetry of tango lyrics. The job of the DJ is to set the mood and provide the dancers with good, danceable music and a flow that makes sense. I try to achieve that by playing with different waves and intensities of energy and by paying attention to the dancers, as well as trusting my intuition. My favourite orchestra depends on the exact moment in time but if one thing is certain, it’s that there will always be Troilo on the menu.”
