Over the last two years Mario has become one of the most engaging artists on the Dubai Scene joining the popular Disconekt Dubai & Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE family. As the future offers a whole world of opportunity, he's putting all his focus into his music!
Lebanese-born and Spanish-bred Mario Bazouri grew up listening to everything from Michael Jackson to George Michael to Prince. He discovered electronic music in the early 90s in the South Coast of Spain when working as a PR at a Spanish disco-bar that played Spanish Bacalao (Techno).
Making a move to Dubai, he helped define the club scene by organizing and promoting “DEEP NIGHTS” that welcomed Danny Tenaglia, Armand Van Helden, John Digweed, Erick Morillo and many more to the city.
Today, apart from being a highly rated Black Belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Practitioner and Competitor, he’s now on the other side of the ticket line, as a DJ & Producer and has become a frequent player in some of Dubai’s finest underground parties, earning himself a residency in Disconekt Dubai, Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE & The Hatch.
Inspired by Dixon, Trikk, Denis Horvat, Santiago Garcia, Fideles, &ME, Rampa and Patrice Baumel just to name a few, his sound is shot through with a rock-solid groove that consists of infectious percussions, Ethnic vibes and dark melodic synths.
Music Production came next where he has previously signed to Voyeur Music/ Baroque Records/ Natura Viva/ Deeplomatic Recordings/ Soul Division Music. Putting lots of focus on his productions, he is expecting quite a few new releases till end of the year on Exotic Refreshment & on Voyeur Music.
During his career behind the decks, he’s warmed-up and shared the decks with many International Underground Talents.
