Mogano is the moniker of electronic music producer and imprint founder Marco Berardi. The name ”mahogany” re-calls both the percussive and string infused nature of his music as well as his profound fascination for ancient musical practices and nature as a source of knowledge. In his youth, Marco was a guitarist involved with a variety of musical projects, around 2010 he began to perform in clubs as a DJ. Making his way in the dub and techno scene, he then formed a synergy with visual artist Andrea Familari Fax and sound designer Drøp (Giuseppe Bifulco), both of whom are now part of the Arboretum imprint. Arboretum has become their cooperative platform for Audio/Video experimentation as well as a record label. Since 2012 the project is based and active in Berlin and has been involved in a remarkable framework of concepts such as Contort (NewCodes Berlin Atonal), Dromoscope (CTM Festival Vorspiel), roBOt Festival, Flussi Festival, Undogmatisch, and many others.
