Mario Fargetta a.ka Get Far is one of Italy’s most popular and respected DJ/Producers. One of the pioneers of the Italian dance scene, Mario has been writing dance music since 1989 and hosting Italy’s biggest dance music radio program for nearly as long.
Fargetta’s discography reads like the history of Italian dance music, with such hits as ‘Music’, ‘The Music Is Movin’, ‘Your Love’, and ‘This Time (Sexy Night)’. In 2006 Fargetta adopted the pseudonym Get Far as a vessel for his more club orientated productions with instant success. His debut release under the Get Far moniker ‘Music Turns Me On’ received considerable support on both the radio and dancefloors throughout Europe, with the follow up single ‘Shining Star’ (which features on Ministry of Sound Electro House Sessions 2) already licensed to over 30 dance compilations worldwide and became an instant club hit.
Fargetta has also remixed Blur, Afrika Bambaata and Rupaul to name a few. In 2006, Mario Fargetta received the prestigious ‘Il Leone d’ora di San Marco’ award for his contribution as a DJ and Producer to the Italian dance industry.
