Clive is an experienced tango DJ, tango blogger and author of Tango 500, a resource book for tango DJs. A former dance teacher and event organiser (now retired), he brings a wealth of experience to his DJing and has a deep love and knowledge of traditional tango music.
Clive plays traditional tango exclusively. He mostly plays the central repertoire of the leading orchestras, aiming for a creative and dynamic mix of styles and periods. His selections focus on recordings from the mid-30s to the mid-40s, balanced by carefully chosen additional repertoire from the late 20s to the late 50s. He has a particular interest in seeking out and playing high-quality transfers and has remastered much of his library to his own exacting standards.
Clive was the resident DJ for Three Counties Tango at Redmarley d’Abitot in Gloucestershire during 2018. He would be delighted to hear from other organisers requiring a DJ for events a reasonable travelling distance from the Midlands.
