Mário Rodrigues pushing with “Dark Matter”

A Portuguese DJ and producer, Mário Rodrigues, lands “Dark Matter” with Underground. He always has a futuristic, innovative and unique approach to create, through experimentation, an original sound ranging from very shady environments to breathtaking tracks. And the dancefloor is full of energy. The live sets are always dynamic and intense: he’s a pro performer who knows how to rock the crowd with groovy, mad and rolling bass techno sound.

He started with djing in 1997 and five years after he decided to dedicate his life to music production releasing many tracks under different names, like DROID, TaXidermY, Droidbeatz, Droidpanik and Poizon and now on Media Records EVO label.

Has Media Records in some way changed or enriched your life as a producer?
“Well, it is the first time that I work with Media Records. It’s good to represent new labels to reach more public”.
Do you have any tracks ready to play and release?
“You can always find my latest works on my store. I start from ‘Inspiration Comes From Pain’ by Sonico (Mário Rodrigues Remix), ‘Stop Being a Bitch’ by Ekim Amard & Mário Rodrigues (Original Mix) and ‘Levels’ by Lenny Dee & DX (Mário Rodrigues Rmx)”.
Have you an album in progress too?
“Yes, it’s ready”.
How would you define you music style?
“I like to do different things in music, always depending of the mood and emotions of the day. But usually yes, the main style of my productions is techno”.
How do you feel about the collaboration with Media Records?
“It’s good when a new label has an interest in your work, because you can reach out to more people. So I’m very happy”.
How do you think the sound could evolve?
“I don’t really know how sound could evolve, it’s an abstract process and time will tell. I think the sound, no matter the style, it’s in constant evolution. Time changes and everything changes with it. This is how it works”.
What’s your goal?
“My main goal is to do what I love most, music, and with music connect with people to share good moments and happiness”.
Is there an artist that inspires you or that you particularly admire?
“I admire tons of artists from different music styles and they all inspire me”.
Which is the best record ever?
“I would say ‘The Fat Of The Land’ by The Prodigy. Their music always was very advanced for the time, ‘Fat of the Land’ was an album that marked my adolescence and somehow made grow my interest for electronic music production and electronic music in general”.
