MARIO FERRINIWhen Mario Ferrini stands on the stage, he conveys positive energy to the audience through his unique music selection and sensitive spinning technique. It all begun in his early teenage years, when he discovered his passion for music in 1994 and started his musical career as a DJ under the artist name "Armando Gomez". Several national and international gigs followed soon after. A few years later he seized the opportunity to work as a promoter, editor and host with a local radio station, in order to gather further experience and make contacts in the music business. This inspired him to develop a concept for his own international radio show, which he produced successfully during the following two years.Later after this enriching and challenging experience, he went back to the studio to produce his first vinyl “My Latin Woman” together with the producer duo Sueno Soul from the UK. This production was released on the well-known label Poji Records USA.
