Mario Ochoa In 5 Records
Born in Medellin (Colombia) Mario’s career started in 1999 at the tender age of 18. In 2003 Mario released his first hit “Habla con la Luna” on Disc Doctor Records which became a huge success on Spain, France, Mexico and South America, being included on more than 70 compilations all over the world. That same year, Mario gets even more exposure when he got signed with to “Poolemusic” property of Antoine Clamaran, French dj and producer who helped a lot to grow Mario’s career. Since then, Mario has signed tracks with many other labels such as Ultra, Universal, 100% Pure, Toolroom Records, 1605 Music Theraphy, Great Stuff, Kittball, Juicy Music, Nervous Records, Fine Tune, Pacha Records, Ministry of Sound, Subliminal Records, to name a few and he also runs his own record label “Avenue Recordings”
Mario’s latest project & debut on Toolroom entitled is out now on Traxsource, we recently caught up with him and asked him to share his 5 most influential tracks of his own.
1. Mario Ochoa – The Indian Express
I will say that this is my favorite production to date, it was a best seller for several months and it had massive support all over the globe.
2. Mario Ochoa & Antoine Clamaran – Give Some Love
This is probably the most important record of my whole career, exposure wise, it made it all the way to Billboard’s Dance Top 10 and stayed there for over 10 weeks.
3. Mario Ochoa – Big Spender.
Well I didn’t expect what would happen with this track, it started just as a bootleg for my sets and it just blew up from one day to another, it got played by everyone, everywhere and it always (and I mean always) still blows up the dance floor to this day.
4. Mario Ochoa – Much Better.
I released this back in 2009 on my own label with not much promotion at all, but it became a hit immediately, most people remember this track back atUMF in 2010 when Erick Morillo opened his set with this track and it totally destroyed that stage.
5. Mario Ochoa – Brujos y Hechiceros.
I like this track a lot for its simplicity, a simple groove and a simple melody that always brings a big smile to people’s faces, and its also one of those tracks that was just so much fun to make. :)
