DJ JUN YI
Intrigued by the beauty of the music and intensity of the dance, Jun discovered the world of Argentine Tango when studying at Yale University, and started her DJing journey at Yale Tango Club. Her incessant quest for great tango music led her to invitations of DJing by popular milongas in New York City, the vibrant tango community that nourished her growth and blossoming into a mature dancer and DJ.
A gentle and sensitive soul, Jun actively listens to the dance floor and she creates such a music space that speaks to dancers’ emotions absorbed in a warm embrace, elegant steps, and playful movement. Known for her impeccable delicacy of storytelling, Jun’s music is instrumental to creating some of the most blissful, energized and passionate milongas for the dancers that have heard her.
Currently residing in California, her journey as a tango dancer, DJ, and community-builder continues to grow and expand through her persistent study of tango music and her consistent tango travels to Europe, Argentina and all over North America.
We can’t wait to hear this badass lady rockin’!
DJ DAVIN DK QUINN
DJ Davin Quinn will make our event special by playing the music from his vinyl collection!
Why vinyl? The richness of the vinyl sound, the high quality of the transfers, and the 100% analog equipment all combine to produce an immersive musical and dancing experience—dancers often say they hear things in their favorite songs that they never heard before! Davin always combines classic hits with exciting new material and energetic cortinas to keep the party pumping and dancers dancing from beginning to end.
Imagine full ronda, party-pumping cortinas, and tango music in high-quality sound making you feel its emotion so strong that your feet will just do the dancing on their own.
