Raiders of the Lost ARP is Mario Pierro’s solo project. He is also known as one half of Mat101 and Jollymusic. His professional career started in 1996 when he met Marco Passarani from Nature records and together they decided to start a series of projects: releases, radio-show and organization of parties.

So far they’ve collected many live performances, many tracks on compilations and remixes using the name MAT101.
