As a Milonga DJ since 2016. In a milonga, the DJ is considered to be like neurons or muscle-spindles and believes that diverse and immediate two-way
communication with the dancers must occur at all times. 90% are standard numbers from the Golden Age, 10% are old guard, 1960s and modern orchestras, and a clever mix of tanda is played to suit the situation.
