There is no great tango marathon without energetic and devoted DJ’s. Therefore, we are incredibly happy that Renaud Chauvet is a part of our 2021 DJ-team and we are sure he will make us dance and party for hours.
From the very day tango entered Renaud Chauvet’s life, he has been involved intensively in tango; dancing, DJ’ing, teaching, organising and travelling to international festivals and marathons … And with this came also the Argentine folklore dancing!

”A dear friend of mine who I met during an ‘After Work’, told us that he taught tango and that we should check it out. I never went back and it changed my life for the better.”

”I love trying to create a good flow on both micro-level and macro-level. Next is the satisfaction to see when people enjoy and ride this flow that I proposed. There is the challenge to resist playing “what I want to hear or make them discover” versus “what needs to be played for the current context”, and when you manage to merge both, it is also a source of great satisfaction. Also last but not least, the free coffee and cakes :-D”

”It will be an interesting challenge as I often used various cortinas as an integral part of shaping the energy flow of my set. I am excited to “activate” my brain on this new take for me. Happy to be part of this concept. This will be fresh and amazing.”

”My favorites evolve all the time, depending on how I like dancing in a certain period, or how often I have listened to them. I have had DiSarli and Pugliese periods, I have had D’Arienzo and Biagi periods, and more recently Canaro, and Troilo. During all these years, there was however always a place in my heart for Tipica Victor, Donato and Rodriguez. The variety they offer is fun to hear. They are not among the “big five” which makes them even more attractive to me. I also listen to Gotan, Bajofondo, Narcotango or Piazzolla, Color tango, Solo tango etc …”
