About me

musician - songwriter - producer

Mario Goossens - to the public known as the frenetic drummer of a wide range of bands, such as powertrio Triggerfinger, poplegends Hooverphonic or classic rock-combo Sloper. Mario has been active as a producer and session musician ever since he entered the music business.

For more than five years now, Mario’s been operating from The Gorio Hills studio based in his home near Hasselt, Belgium. With a diverse team of international professionals, he’s been writing and producing music; from short bumpers to extended soundtracks and pop songs that suit any requirement, and that’s precisely what he aims to focus on in the years to come.

He operates within an international network of highly skilled musicians, authors and composers, producers and engineers who’ve proved their talent in this business: craftsmanship overrules personal ambition or ego, and a listening ear is at any given time ready to interpret and carry out the client’s wishes.

Feel free to scroll through some of the results that were produced over the last few years and you will discover a rich and diverse repertoire for any taste or client.


During his 30 year long career he has played a lot of drums, produced a lot of albums and written a lot of songs.
