'Piatto Italo Techno' is a punchy collection of royalty-free Techno loops and sounds, lovingly created Italo style! Collectively, the Piatto brothers knowledge and contribution to the history of Dance Music runs deep. Davide being co founder of N.O.I.A, one of Italy's first electronic live acts to perform and record with drum machines and synthesizers as early as 1978.
It is not surprising then that for Alessandro, following in his brothers footsteps was inevitable and he too became hooked on the incredible new sound palette emanating from the early electronic machines.
During the 80's the Piatto brothers continued to push boundaries in what was then the very infant stages of Dance music, with Davide sending out demo tapes, later to be transformed by Mario Boncaldo and Tony Carrasco going under the name Klein + M.B.O. Their release "Dirty Talk" is considered to be the first Chicago House Record.
During this time Alessandro grew in confidence as a producer and also taught himself to mix, adding DJ skills to his repertoire.
Eventually at the beginning of the 90's, Davide and Alessandro joined forces to work on a new N.O.I.A. album for the US label Ersatz Audio which was quickly followed by collaborations with G.D. Luxxe as "Raymond Barry". The single "TV Night" was included in Pete Tong's BBC playlist and Ivan Smugghe's compilation called "Death Disco".
Piatto have delivered one sleek sounding sample collection for all producers worldwide looking to add a pinch of Classic Italian design into their Techno and Tech productions.
Weighing in at nearly 1 GB of 24 Bit/44.1 kHz loops and sounds including tight percussive beats, warm, pulsing bass loops, upfront Techno music loops, atmospheric SFX and crisp, cutting one-shots.
