Igor “El Espejero” started dancing tango in 2011, and DJing in 2012. Since then he has been invited to play his music to over 300 milongas and events in London, Dublin, Bruges, Buffalo, Boston, Cleveland, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Fort Mill, Riga, Vilnius, Minsk, Kiev, Lviv, Odessa, Dnipro, Niš, Antalya, Shanghai, Taipei, Kyrenia, and Buenos Aires (Salon Canning and Club Fulgor), while actively DJing at various milonga venues and organizing own events in Toronto, the city of his residence, keeping the tango alive throughout the stormy 2020-2021 seasons.
His musical style is influenced by the abundant energy of the best Italian tango DJs, and by the profound and sensual musical selection of the younger generation of Buenos Aires musicalizadors. Igor also has deeply immersed himself into the craft of sound engineering. His articles and webinars on the various technical aspects of tango DJing are well known around the world.
Igor says: “I believe that it is the dance floor that dictates the choices to the DJ, not other way around. Thus, I neither program my music in advance of the event, nor I attempt to ‘educate’ or ‘challenge’ the dancers. My only goal is to deliver the best danceable music and abundant energy to the floor, from the first to the last tanda, without a single exception.”
