About

Mario Lovakovic aka Umbo is an artist that is on the fast train to success.
Hailing from Germany but now based in Croatia his blend of disco influenced
funky breaks is being well received all over and has catapulted him into the
spotlight thanks to a slew of well-received releases and remixes for the
likes of Wack, Bombastic Jam, Breakbeat Paradise, Rocstar and his favourite label
Goodgroove Records.

Having picked up a guitar in the early 90's he soon got the bug and taught
himself how to play the keys and the bass. Playing in live bands and drawing
from his early influences of bossa and jazz he then progressed into electronic
music and started spinning funky and afro house before finally settling on
breaks, although always with a funky edge. As well as his DJing and playing
in bands he decided to add another string to his bow and so
the music production followed.

His first release came in 2008 on the Greek label Timewarp Music alongside
studio partner Balatz who he met whilst in the band Dogo Argentino.
Their prolific release schedule continued earning them critical acclaim
and this led to further output as a solo artist and alongside other
collaborators on several top labels.

Today sees Umbo working on a very busy release schedule as well as
running Suppadupa Grooves which is the top funky breaks night in Croatia.
Things are set to blow in 2011 and he is currently putting the finishing
touches to a European tour which will no doubt bring more exposure and
help him to achieve his goal which is at the top of his game.
