In 2013 he started working as a traditional tango DJ and shortly after he added the neotango to his repertoire. Since then he has played at most of the prestigious international neo and tango festivals and events in Europe and Argentina such as ElectroTango Festival Buenos Aires, TNT Toulouse, Tango Biathlon, NTB Bruges, Tango Marathon Nantes, Tango des Lumieres Lyon, Tango Vibes Berlin, Siena Tango Marathon, Contango Festival Freiburg, TangoRave, Phantastango, Neotango Landscapes, World Tango Congress and many more. 

DJ Eze loves variety, surprising and to create different kinds of atmospheres during his sets. He plays modern tangos and many different genres that he smoothly mixes them with flow and harmony. He is always very sensitive to what is happening on the dance floor and is happy when people are having a good time.

Anna Neum (ru/fr)

In music since childhood, playing range from piano classics to rock band. Fall in love with tango music in 1998. It took more than 10 years to start dancing instead of just listening, but it worth that. Both loves Golden era and Neo tango music and hopes that some day they can at last live in harmony.

"Music flows in me and I flow with music. Every set I play is live and depends on the dancefloor right here right now Love that kind of continious music flow, that takes dancers thru time and range of emotions. I'm in love with process - of searching and trying something new, changing, combining it into stream at console, feeling dancers energy... The only frustrating thing is that there are things I really want to dance, but never have an opportunity. So I dance them solo, while mixing."

Franco(de)

Was born in Rome (Italy) and has been living in Munich (Germany) for a few years now. He started playing piano when was 6 years old, studying classical music for many years, then moving on to blues and then to jazz. His journey as a passionate Tango dancer began in 2016 and in 2018 he started to perform as a Neotango DJ, in almost 200 events till today. Jazz-like improvisation, creation of own patterns, free sequencing are what melts him with Tango. Pure feelings expressed through music following improvisation and dance floor, that's why every set he plays is unique.
