 DJ Arjan ‘el Irresistible’

 Arjan Sikking is given in 1999 the DJ-name el Irresistible at the Academia de Tango, the name of a tango from 1908. Over the years, Arjan built up a large and varied collection of Argentine tango music with more than twelve thousand titles.

 DJ el Irresistible is known for how he builds up the salon evening. He fully exploits the possibilities of the differences in energy from the many music styles that tango has: especially from the rich history of the 30s, 40s and 50s (and sometimes 60s).

 His tangos, milongas and tango waltzes are always splendidly danceable. Between the tanda’s of four titles, he plays, just as is done in Buenos Aires, a cortina.

 His first experiences as DJ were between 1994 and 1999, when he plays on an irregular basis. From 1999 he plays regular and since 2004 he plays weekly and more often.

His residence is Amsterdam.
