Mario Basanov slip away

Mario Basanov

Mario Basanov Mario Basanov (Marijus Adomaitis) is top notch Lithuanian producer, secret studio weapon, slowly but surely heading for world domination. Still in his twenties but solid ten years of production experience behind his back Mario is the one to watch. House, Broken Beat, New Jazz, R&B - Mario’s creative work shows all of these are just names not boundaries.

What really surprises is Mario’s scope and versatility. Lithuanian pop stars knock at his door when they need a proper sounding radio hit. Local dance celebrities do the same when they’re in demand for a new floor destroyer. Lithuanian Progressive icon Ignas I.V. (remixes for 16B and Deep Dish), House ambassadors RyRalio (original production/ remixes for Jay-J, Rithma) and New Ravers Metal On Metal (original production/ remixes for Datarock, New Young Pony Club, Tim Deluxe, Kissy Sell Out) all owe at least a little something to his studio trickery. No wonder American House legend Miguel Migs came up with a remix request lately as well.

And when it comes to more ambitious musical grounds one shouldn’t be surprised to find Mario name checked alongside living legends Bugge Wesseltoft, Lars Danielsson, Nils Petter Molvaer or Eivind Aarset in various live and studio projects such as Lars Danielsson’s album Mélange Bleu.

Recently Mario teamed up with respected Lithuanian DJ, radio host and promoter Vidis to deliver what could be the freshest sounding House music in Lithuania and around. Their first production effort a remix for Atjazz and Robert Owens’ song Love Someone is already causing a stir - it was picked and banged by the likes of Gilles Peterson and Pete Tong.
