Our DJ team

Volodymyr Venhlinskyi

(Lviv, Ukraine)

When I am working as a DJ I try to take the initiative and offer special milonga line to the audience. If we talk about the choice of music, I prefer moderate conservatism of the Golden Age with melodic compositions. Particular importance I give to cortinas, search and selection of which sometimes takes more time than tandas preparation. I try to connect them with both tandas and with each other by a separate musical line with additional meaning

Igoris Saburov

(Vilnius, Lithuania)

I was DJ-ing in Belarus, Belgium, Estonia, France,Germany,Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland ,Portugal and Russia in different Tango events.
I love all tango music. In milongas I prefer to play music of Golden Era, although i am not categorical and tries to feel the interest of the dancing people.

Tino Iacovino

(Genoa, Italy)

Tino has been practising tango since 1992, first as a dancer, then as event organizer, tango teacher and DJ. He has played tango music at many events and milongas in Genova, Milano, Torino and Alassio (Italy), Nice (France), Valencia (Spain) and Jurmala (Latvia). He prefers playing classic Golden Age tangos from 1930 to 1950, sometimes adding a bit of later orchestras.

Alexey Doroshchenko

(Minsk, Belarus)

I started DJing in 2009 in Minsk. It all started as an opportunity to dance to the music I liked, now I enjoy DJing as much as dancing. Over the years, I have played music at tango events in different countries. I like to play a lot of Di Sarli and D'Arienzo, adding other good stuff in between. I think, a sign of great DJ’s job is when dancers aren't afraid to miss a good tanda chatting with friends, just because they know there's more wonderful music coming.

Dmitry Zakrochinsky

(Minsk, Belarus)

My DJing path started in 2014, since then I have been regularly playing tango music at Minsk milongas. I prefer to play music of 30s and 40s in my sets and always try to balance the rhythmical and lyrical tangos. Also, I keep searching for some less known but beautiful tango records and use every opportunity to play them for the dancers. My favorite orchestras are DiSarli and Demare.

Alexander Volchek

(Minsk, Belarus)

The idea of DJing has always attracted me, but I could never imagine that it would come true in tango! I used to like different orchestras, D’Arienzo with Hector Maure has always been my favourite. What I like about music is the details that are below the surface of it - sometimes you can find a whole world there. At milongas I try to play the clear and simple Golden age tangos. A full dancefloor and grateful people is the best reward for me as a DJ.

Alexey Kutovenko

(Minsk, Belarus)

A good milonga is like a journey, with changing landscapes, stories and adventures, pleasant fellow travelers and a bit of intrigue: what will be behind the new turn? I regularly DJ at Minsk milongas. I was DJ’ing at the X Baltic Tango Festival (Vilnius, Lithuania, 2016), Winter Tango Marathon (Vilnius, Lithuania, 2016), RioGrande Tango Marathon (Pskov, Russia, 2018), Milonguero Summer Marathon (Vilnius, Lithuania, 2018). I’m a great fan of the golden age tango music and melodic milongas.
