New to argentine tango, introductions and seeking good music

Try Hugo Diaz. There are two performers of that name: a black guy who plays the mouth organ and a white bearded guy who plays the bandoneon. They are blasts from the past as well, but both are well worth listening and dancing to.

So give the oldies time... they may grow on you too, once you get accustomed to the very different orchestration and the feeling that you are listening to a really cheap pair of speakers with the woofers blown out.

;)

and recorded in an echoey church
:D
and if you listen to the real 'oldies' you'll find non-tuned orchestras, musicians who couldnt keep time..

the drum thing is just a red herring...

There are by far more poor old tangos than good ones. But only a few have the courage to speak this fact out loud. And also a lot of DJs who should know better simply put the music on the organizers wants to hear.

While it is true (that there are more poor tangos than good ones), not many DJ's play a lot of the bad ones (personal preferences aside).

BTW, a DJ that doesn't play what the organizer wants, is a lot less likely to return there to DJ again. It seems to me your issue is with the organizer, and not the DJ.
