He whent to school at SAE to learn some of the ropes of sound engineering and production wich was very beneficial as he feel it has and still is making the learning curve of this very difficult craft a little easier.

His music is characterized by a deep dark sound with heavy bass although one of his traits is the versatility of his productions and dj sets.  Mario has a very unpredictable style which makes his his friends and fans never know what to expect. Depending on the crowd and venue Mario can play a very deep, slow, groovy vocal set or he can also play a faster paced, more energetic and in your face style.  Keep you eyes and ears peeled for this Dj/Producer who is best known for his very charismatic presence and for always having a smile on his face.
