Elio Astor (Rome)


  • Formerly a club DJ, he started studying tango in 2003, he has been at the console as a tango dj for more than 5000 hours,
    during the first years putting music in tango festivals, milongas and encuentros milongueros in Europe
    and also in Buenos Aires where he was at the console of Club Fulgor, Nino Bien and the famous Salon Canning.
    During one of the traditional evenings he was very surprised because when he put a mixed tanda
    from Orquesta Fervor de Buenos Aires "al estilo de Carlos di Sarli",
    just few of the traditional dancers went to the dancefloor to dance.
    After some weeks he took the same tanda, he worked on it on the pc, adding hiss and vinyl effect
    deterioration, making it sound like an old vinyl. He proposed this tanda to the same milonga,
    which they danced happily.
    So he decided to spend his time looking at the possibilities which tango has to be danced
    on modern music, he was the first one to make a milonga with 100% modern music
    in Italy in 2008, he was the first to introduce the hangdrum in a milonga in 2016,
    he is now focusing on music production, he believes in a global tango music renaissance
    made by musicians and new tango orquestas, experienced djs,
    and open minded teachers who teach first steps on modern music instead retro/vintage one.

Phil (Toulouse)


Tango, swing and blues dancer, Phil love mixing dances.
As started as Hard Rock and metal DJ in the 80’s, Then switched to Blues nights ; Blues drove me to Tango, Neo of course, and I could open Nueva Guardia in Toulouse in 2015, after one year of different tries all around.
I like to invite DJs to my milonga, I also like to organize events : Our baby, the TNT is doing well and I'm proud to announce that we are again in a gestation period, presumed birth date being around June 17 2018. I was also daddy of the « nocturna » .
Our family is nicely growing!. Phil.

He started with pure blues nights then offered to Toulouse monthly alternative tango nights with his association Nueva Guardia.
Now those nights have their own public.
He's also taking part into nights where several DJs can meet, showing different facets of where they consider as modern tango.
He's the one who introduced the nocturnas in Tangopostale.




  • Andreas joined the Tango in 2005 as a photographer and has been dancing since 2006.
    From the very beginning, he was interested in alternative tango.
  • Since 2015 he has focused his artistic work on the Vjing. Almost invariably, he uses
    his own visual material. Some of them are works that have already been shown at exhibitions,
    others have been created by him especially for the Vjing.
    He sees the Vjing as a form with visual elements to dance to the music.
    This results in a mutual influence on music, dancers and visuals.
