NUEVO TANGO MUSIC (2pm-4.30pm)
Inspiring, Expressive & most importantly Danceable Music. Your DJ, Dance Inspired (Warren) has more than 35 years dj experience and more than 15 years dj’ing Tango (Traditional and Nuevo). He has also dj’d and dances many other dance styles and draws on a wealth of musical genres and styles. He has dj’d at UK’s most popular Milongas (such as Negrachas) and its biggest Weekenders/Festivals (such as Rock Bottoms/England International/Camber).
He is also a very expereinced Tango Dancer and Teacher so knows if a tune works for Tango. He plays lots of music you know and love (quite a few which he introduced to the Nuevo scene!). Plus each month he reseraches and edits many new tunes. The music you will dance to is not from a pre-ordained playlist but rather curated from his vast library and organically adapted for you tune by tune during the Milonga. He prides himself on reading the floor and adapting the music to suit who is in the room and what will get them dancing.
