Cassiel, a well known German Tango-Blogger, wrote at the 9th of June an article about the new Calo Transfers, you can get at the download store of TangoTunes. The article is in German but really worth to read and highly recommendet!

 

"Das aktuelle TangoTunes Paket Miguel Caló 1941 bis 43 – Protokoll einer Kaufentscheidung

 

In diesem Beitrag möchte ich einmal meine Überlegungen vor dem Kauf und das Einpflegen der Daten nach dem Kauf schriftlich niederlegen. Im Optimalfall kann dieser Artikel dann eine Entscheidungshilfe für Unschlüssige sein. Dieser Text ist bewusst etwas ausführlicher gehalten. Mir wäre es wichtig, den Prozess der Entscheidungsfindung transparent zu machen.

 

Am Montag letzter Woche [am 30. Mai 2016 - Amerkung DJ-Salzer] veröffentlichte TangoTunes ein weiteres Paket mit 44 Audio-Tracks (Das Orchester von Miguel Caló – Aufnahmen von 1941 - 1943) in der Reihe „GoldenEars“. Die Ausgangslage bei diesem Orchester sollte allgemein bekannt sein. Es gibt bislang eine relativ ordentliche Sammlung der Titel dieses Orchesters auf CD in der Reliquias-Serie (herausgegeben von EMI, der Rechtsnachfolgerin des damaligen Labels Odeon, bei dem Miguel Caló unter Vertrag war).

Und hier noch ein ergänzender Kommentar von Thomas Hildebrandt:

 

"In diesem Jahr feiern wir 100 Jahre La Cumparsita: der bekannteste Tango der Welt, das Symbol für das ganze Genre und heute überall auf der Welt das Signal für das Ende der Milonga. Das Stück geht auf kompositorische Ideen von Gerardo Matos Rodríguez zurück (der Arme hat sich die Rechte nie gesichert) und wurde von Roberto Firpo vervollständigt. Von Firpo soll auch die älteste bekannte Aufnahme stammen (1916), aber die Historiker sind sich da nicht sicher. Kaum ein Orchester hat dieses Stück nicht aufgenommen. Und jeder Tänzer hat es schon tausendmal getanzt."

Discussion: What's good Argentine Tango?

February 17th 2016

 

MSHEDGEHOG wrote an article on her Blog with some helpful ideas:

 

"What's good Argentine Tango? - What's good dancing?
Performance and Choreography - the easy part
If it's a show - a performance - that we're talking about, then this is a relatively easy question. I expect to see a whole lot of technical things that make it look good, plus something more. [...]"

In this article the aspects of choreography and performance are compared with the social aspects. I think it is interesting to read and think about.

Helpful: 3 articles about Tango-DJing from Michael Lavocah on todotango.com

February 8th 2016

 

Tango DJing-Part 1: Music for dancing

Tango DJing-Part 2: Tanda construction

Tango DJing-Part 3: Shaping the evening

 

Michael Lavocah is known as the author of two great Tango books: "Tango Stories" and "Anibal Troilo" - but also as a good international Tango-DJ/Musicalizador. On www.todotango.com he wrote 3 articles about Tango DJing that I would like to recommend for people who are interested in Tango DJing. And for practicing DJs maybe it can be an impuls to check the own skills. The articles are in English but you can also find a Spanish version on TodoTango.

Some helpful hints and links for Musicalizadores and Tango-DJs

October 13th 2015

 

When DJs start to mix traditional Tango music, oftenly very soon they start looking and searching for good tracks. There are some CD-lables serving high quality transfers from Shellacks as "C.T.A." (Akihito Baba, Japan), "AMP" (Asociacion de la Musica Porteña, Japan), "AudiPark" (Yasuhiko Fukukawa, Japan) and "Harlequin" (UK). Most of this Albums you can find at the homepage of Bernhard Gehberger <www.tango-dj.at>.

 

Some good transfers you also can find at the download-shop of <www.tangotunes.com> This shop is also located in Vienna/Austria. Here I would like to recommend the new releases of D'Agostino, the GoldenEar Edition of D'Arienzo and Tanturi.

If you are looking for other Orchestras - I would like to suggest: prelisten the songs and check the quality before you buy the tracks.

 

Some more good music you will also find on labels as Reliquias, Euro Records (offering albums of Archivo RCA and Colleción 78RPM), Tango Argentina/BMG Ariola and Le Chant du Monde.

Some of this albums are sold out, some of them you may find at the homepage of Bernhard Gehberger or at the homepages of bigger internet sellers.

 

A serious file tagging might be very helpful for Tanda-Composing. To check missing data for your files I recommend a look on this homepages:

- Bernhard Gehberger: <www.tango-dj.at/database>

- DJ Matias, representing a short compilation of the most important online discographies: <www.dj-tango.com/database>
