Lucas Malec ‘El Taberno’ (Argentina)

Lucas comes from the Caballito district in the heart of Buenos Aires and currently lives in Amsterdam. A musician and dancer, he is a founding member of the Pannonica Tango Quartet.
As a DJ, his music is characterised by energy and he is known for keeping dancers emotionally engaged to the point of intoxication, which is why he is known as El Tabernero. He has played at important milongas and festivals in Buenos Aires and Europe, such as Buenos Aires Tango Salon, Metz Abrazo Tango Festival, Holland Tango Festival, Frostbite Festival (Finland), Rosario Tango Festival, Santa Milonguita, Academia de Tango, Amsterdam Tango Marathon, Club Fulgor de Villa Crespo, Maldita Milonga, Salon Canning, etc. Always with quality tracks that he selects and enhances in his studio.

Jo Switten 450x325

Jo Switten (Belgium)

Jo Switten, also known as El Huracán, came into contact with Tango Argentino in the late 1980s. He took his first lessons in 1990 and immediately fell in love with the music, the dance and the social aspects of milongas. At the time, there were not many opportunities to dance, so he started collecting tango records and started DJing at national and international tango parties.
Jo is passionate about tango but is not a librarian or archivist of tango music. He strongly believes that a good milonga is about fun, about the pleasure of dancing and being together, without losing the authentic character of a true Argentine salón de tango. Prepare for an evening of dancing and a good atmosphere. Los esperamos por una noche de garufa!
