International Celebrity DJs
DAVIN (“DK”) QUINN
DJ Davin (“DK”) Quinn has been a tango dancer since 2006, a DJ since 2012, and has been delighting dancers at events around the country with his extensive collection of vinyl tango records since 2017. The richness of the vinyl sound, the high quality of the transfers, and the 100% analogue 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 has brought his Technics SL1200 turntables to the Albuquerque Tango Festival, the Los Angeles Endless Summer Tango Marathon, International Tango Summit, Las Vegas All-You-Can-Tango Marathon, and the DC Tango Holiday Marathon. Davin always combines the classic hits with exciting new material and energetic cortinas to keep the party pumping and dancers dancing from beginning to end.
Max’s passion for tango began in 1999 as a dancer and collector of tango music.He started Dj-ing in 2006. During this period, He collaborated and continues to work with most of the major Milongas in the Milan area and many venues in northern/central Italy. He regularly DJs at international Marathons/Encuentros/Festivals/Milongas in Europe, North America and Asia.The backbone of his work, organized in Tandas y Cortinas, is represented by the music of the Golden age, with influenceby the orchestras of the Guardia Vieja and the early 1950s.For Max, every event is different and unique. All tandas and transitions are improvised based on observation of the dancefloor, shaping the rhythmic and emotional energy of the dance floor.My motto: “A Tango DJ gig is like a great Red Wine: complex, spicy, bold, intense, harmonic … and after each sip you’re left wanting for more!”Max co-organizes the Milonga in Milan (“La Milonguita della Martesana”), and since 2019, he co-organizes the “Darsena Milano Tango Marathon”.The list of events he has captivated by his Dj-ing magic are too many to list and encompass the entire globe.

His work at milongas is mainly to create the journey the dancers will take that night through the music, for this he selects the songs varying constantly the atmosphere of the night.
The core of the night will be based on golden era orchestras, but it depending on the night, modern orchestras will be added to the mix. He loves music in general, he loves the night and he loves to keep people dancing till even after the milonga is over.
