Mike Shirobokov

Chicago, IL

Mike has been DJing since 2010, first at local Chicago milongas, and then at a handful of marathons and festivals, both in the US and abroad. He plays traditional golden age music, with early and mid-40s being his favorite period. He prefers tangos with singers, but there are some instrumental tandas that he loves, too. He studies tango music history as much as he can and makes sure the composition of his tandas reflects that knowledge. Finally, he believes that careful progression of tandas throughout the night is as important as the quality of the tandas themselves.
