Tango DJ Anthony Cronin
“Tango is for me a gateway to unspoken emotions,“
WHO: Tango DJ, Writer
ROLE: Tanguero Leader
DANCING SINCE: 2007
Tango DJ since 2007. I was a DJ long before I discovered tango, DJ-ing in nightclubs and radio in my student days in Cork. Now I DJs milongas, marathons and tango festivals at home and abroad. With a long list of countries already under my belt.
DJ-ing for me: It is all about the dancers and keeping them dancing and smiling. I play primarily from the 1930’s & 40’s with gentle dives into the wonderful Guarda Vieja of late 20’s and odd trips into the 50’s. As a dancer first, I know that once I trust the DJ to be consistent my night is better and this is what I seek to give all dancers, comfort that the music will be danceable and flow tanda to tanda.”
This is why I spend many hours researching tango and also ensuring only the best quality transfers possible are played to fill the room with beautiful music. Each time I try to gently tell a story and keep the dynamics changing across the night so everyone gets carried along. I want to live life to the full and laugh and that is what I try to give the dancers.
