The time has come to throw the last party of 2012. We are very happy to close another great season with one of our favourite artists, Mario Basanov. He has been wowing us ever since his first releases, which actually came out not too long ago. Having since put out quality pop and underground tracks one after another, we have watched Mario’s constant rise to the top. Seems like the process of making great music isn’t much of an effort for him! As his debut solo album has just been released on Needwant this party is actually part of his album tour. Just like his album, a “Journey” is taking him for a busy tour to the likes of Brazil, Ibiza, London and Berlin, and we are excited to be part of that. So you know it’s worth to come down to boogie with us one more time!
The doors are open at 23:00, and we very much advice you to come early, as the pre-christmas season will be busy. Tapio K will heat up your dancing shoes till about 01:00, before Mario launces off the spaceship. Of course we will be handing out Future Disco CDs and T-shirst too, cause it's X-mas time!
Mario Basanov is a name that will start to become familiar to many. Already a hero in his home country of Lithuania after winning producer of the year in 2011 in their annual music awards, Mario has gone on to champion the world. Mario rose to fame with his producing partner Vidis who together crafted a string of underground hits such as ‘I'll Be Gone’, ‘Who's Shot The Silence’, and ‘Changed’ all becoming huge international phenomena after the release of their debut artist album ‘Changed’. Now Mario steps out on his own for his debit artists album Journey released in November 2012.
It was back in 2009 Mario revealed his love affair with a more sentimental Disco and Deep House sound. His first solo release ‘I’ll Be Gone’ came on the respected Australian imprint Future Classic, followed by the unforgettable Balearic sun infused ‘Caribbean Girl’ on UK label Under The Shade. The real turning points were his releases on Needwant, the deep piano stomper ‘Up’ and follow up ‘Lonely Days’, featuring Mario’s own vocals, are both just a hint of what Mario is set to achieve with his individual productions.
Today Mario counts the likes of Solomun, Tensnake, Maceo Plex and Soul Clap amongst his music’s fans. His reputation has continued to balloon at throughout 2012 with sought after remixes for bands such as Metronomy, Tyson and Crazy P, as well as his hit single ‘We Are Child of Love’ which included two of Mario’s own dub versions.
It is not only Mario’s outstanding production that makes people take note but Mario’s scope and versatility. He is just as comfortable producing a pop infused vocal as making tasteful underground dancefloor weapons. House, Disco and Electronica; its all there in Mario’s repertoire. His creativity and abilities show genres appear as names and not boundaries.
