Mario Pacheco

Mario Pacheco (1950 - November 26, 2010) was a Spanish record producer, photographer and entrepreneur.[1]

Born in Madrid, Pacheco was an essential figure in the development of contemporary flamenco and other musical genres in Spain for more than two decades.[2]

In 1982 he founded Nuevos Medios, a record label that introduced countless guitarists, singers and other flamenco notables through his vision in furthering the genre worldwide. Besides this, he was also a renowned photographer.[3]

At a time when flamenco music did not get the respect it deserved, Pacheco signed many young musicians who renovated flamenco or mixed it with other musical forms. At the same time, he released music by leading new wave artists and contemporary jazz musicians.[4]

Through his company, Pacheco released albums by some of the most significative flamenco artists of the period: Carlos Benavent, Diego Carrasco, Jorge Pardo, Ketama, La Macanita, Pata Negra, Golpes Bajos, Martirio, Ray Heredia and La Barbería del Sur, among others.[1][2]

In addition, he released assorted music created by British rock music groups Joy Division, New Order and The Smiths; minimalist musician Steve Reich; jazzists Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett Pat Metheny and Art Pepper, and Cuban music compilations of Bola de Nieve and Benny Moré. He also mixed compilations of his label artists in the series Los Jóvenes Flamencos.[2]

At the time of his death from cancer in Madrid, Pacheco was the president of the Unión Fonográfica Independiente (UFI), the association of Spanish independent labels.[2]
