The DJs of The Big POP are all confirmed. 6 unprecedentedly awesome Djs who will rock the floor and promise you a memorable party! In no particular order: Jens Dorr, Mary Wu, Dark-Oh Vocentijevic, La Ros Capasso, Juliana Thutlwa and Bomboncito Benedicte Beauloye.
CORTINA THEME? Mmmmm … I have to decide between AC/DC greatest hits and ’70/’80 Disco Dance.
STYLE? I have a rather energetic style. Which does not mean I don’t love and don’t play romantic tandas! In a djset there must be everything. Energy, intensity, play, fun, romance… you have to get out of a milonga more ‘alive’ than you’ve got in, and each dj balances these atmospheres differently and personally.
WHAT MAKES A GREAT MARATHON? A good dance level, a perfect location that facilitates meeting, inviting and socializing, a nice friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
WHEN OFF-DUTY? I work as an illustrator and graphic designer. I love photography, reading, cats, polka dots, and taking care of my bed & breakfast: MondoPiccolo.
FAVE TUNE? “Te aconsejo que me olvides” by Troilo-Fiorentino. It has everything: intensity, rhythm and pathos. All you need for a tango.
GREAT MARATHONS? Nice People, good music.
FAVOURITE MUSIC? There are some jazz tunes and classical music I never grow tired of. With tango music it is changing more often.
CORTINA MUSIC AT THE POP? I don’t know yet.
ALL TIME BEST TUNE? There are so many! But I can’t get enough of Podesta’s voice in Laurenz’s Alma de Bohemio. It’s like butter. 😉
WHEN OFF THE DJ DECK? I geek out as a biologist in a lab (and dance at the bench in my lab coat when I think no one is watching).
DJ STYLE? I’ve been told that my music is sweet and sometimes romantic. For me, variety is important in a set.
WHEN I AM NOT A TANGO DJ? Unfortunately I am still a DJ. I think people hate it when I’m changing songs in car.
WHAT MAKES A GREAT MARATHON? Sounds like a cliche but people make a good event. Even bad space or choice of music can not ruin good atmosphere when there are great people.
FAVE TUNE? Tres esquinas from D`Agostino… My forever Loved One.
DJ STYLE? Modern classics
WHAT MAKES A GREAT MARATHON? Hosts that care, DJs that know what they are doing, guests that appreciate and involve themselves. Decent sound system & facilities. Considered organization. Enough food and a well equipped bar!
ADVICE TO BUDDING DJ’S? Just be yourself!
FAVOURITE TUNE? I’ll play it during my set 😉
