Mario Aureo

Ritter Butzke Studio / Yippiee / Jackmode


Mario was born in Hanover in 1985 and started djing at the age of 15. After his first successful gigs in his hometown he was sure that electronic music was going to be a permanent fixture in his life. When he turned 19 and with this mindset, he started working as a trainee at the local record shop „Street Sounds“ in order to expand his musical knowledge.

In 2007 he finally released his first tracks in collaboration with his good friend Daniel Solar on Sportclub Music. A year later, after a few more releases and remixes along with Daniel, he released his first solo production.

In 2009 Mario released „Talking Drums“, his highest selling single so far which was released on Butch’s label Bouq Records and gained broad support from Mathias Kaden (played several times), Laurent Garnier (played at Timewarp 2009), Karotte (played at Karottes Kitchen), Lauhaus (charted on Resident Advisor) and many more. After this success he did remixes for two german labels, had his next release, „Sliding Years EP“ on the Italian Label Phaze Records and contributed towards the song „Hmmahaayeah“ along with Marc Poppcke on a sampler released on Berlin-based Vivid Records in the same year.

A year after, Mario Aureo continued his collaboration with Daniel Solar and they released tracks on Einmaleins Musik, Keno Records and Sportclub Music. In addition, Mario also produced a remix for the ambitious label Yippiee from his native Hannover, which was founded by his longstanding friends „Filtertypen“.

In 2011 he had releases on OFF Recordings, Einmaleins Musik and Yippiee… In addition to this he did some remixes for artists like Re.You, Oscar Barila and Ugur Project.

Last Year, he released an EP on the swedish label Colourful Music and another one on Alex Niggemann’s Imprint Soulfooled plus a track on the Yippiee Compilation, called Passion. Beyond that he did a lot of remixes for likes of Rhadow, Marc Miroir, Bara Bröst, Thomas A.S., Mild Bang, Melchior Bachmann and Obie Tryce.

In 2013 his focus was more on remixes – He did some for labels like Peppermint Jam, Steyoyoke, Cyclic Records, Congaloid, Simple As That, Colourful Recordings, Telekollegen, Casual Lab and Bubbles On The Air just to name a few! Nevertheless he had some original release as well on Ritter Butzke Studio, Bondage Music, Dikso and WellDone!

The new year has just started but there is already a lot in the pipeline! Releases on Moodmusic, Soulfooled, Danse Club and Gorge’s new imprint Re:Fresh are fixed and remixes for acts like Markus Homm, Rampue, Madmotormiquel, schNee, Low.Tales, Santiago Deep are done!

Keep your eyes and ears open…
