I began my love affair with tango in 2006 and started deejaying in 2010 after having spent eight months absorbing the music played in the milongas of Buenos Aires. That experience taught me the importance of paying close attention to the dancers and the mood on the piso. When making my own musical selections, I strive for the perfect balance between high energy and tranquil melodiousness, between simplicity and complexity, much like a diver who paces his descent into the ocean depths—and comes up for air once in a while. I have deejayed at various venues in Toronto and the United States and spend much of my free time delving into the history of tango music and building my own collection.
