The name "Piatto" stands for a combo, that is the brothers Davide and Alessandro.Since his childhood Alessandro follows his brother's group called N.O.I.A. that is probably the first Italian electronic band founded in 1978 by Davide Piatto and Bruno Magnani.In those years Alessandro is acquainted with Electronic Music and New Wave starting playing drum machines and synths.At the beginning of the 80's he produces demo tapes and starts to play live performances with various bands.In 1986 he plays dj sets with a punk attitude then, later on, they will become more techno.For what about Davide: "Claudio "Mozart" Rispoli, Davide Piatto and N.O.I.A., Alexander Robotnik, DFC Team are perhaps the main characters of a new style of music that can be called "Nouvelle Vague" which has influenced the traditional idea of Dance Music. These people with their "Homemade Production" have managed to reach international hits of music by inventing their peculiar and stylish music.D. Piatto can be considered an "angry rocker" of his town (Cervia);He can be remembered with his group "Rebels Without a Cause" for his live concerts and his italian neorock style, both for the kind of music and the look [...].N.O.I.A. represented the isolationsm of the province, they used the first electronic machine, the analog synths, the ones that sounded just like a noisy bip but then will have become the stylistic mark of lisergic vision of acid house music; they used to play drum-machines that only Kraftwerk played at those times.At the beginning of the 80's Davide Piatto makes in his small bedroom some intstrumental tracks that the world won't forget: they were few minutes of repetitive beat music recorded at a very low budget that became records named called Klein and MBO produced by Mario Boncaldo and Tony Carrasco.Later on dJs from Chicago such as Frankie Knuckles, Marshall Jefferson, Phuture, Farley Jackmaster Flash, will trasform this cool energy in a masterpiece like "Love can't turn around".House music found its origin, a new style of music was born, that is the remix and a new way of playing pop music. We can call it "music for no- musicians, but only a turntable and a mixer that will have been the two main elements of the music of the future.Davide, at those times couldn't imagine that his homely productions could then be considered precious cult music by DJ Hell, Knuckles and the Detroit producers Adult that asked Piatto to record N.O.I.A. unreleased tracks.Taken from the book "Last night a dj saved my Life" Bill Brewster, Frank Broughton - Arcana Edizioni (2005)"At the beginning of the 90's Davide and Alessandro have started to collaborate together in studio and have begun to release records. They made a new N.O.I.A. album for the US label Ersatz Audio and started to collaborate with G.D. Luxxe as "Raymond Barry". Their tracks were included in Pete Tong's playlist and Ivan Smugghe's compilation.Soon afterwords they started an old project "Funk Revenge" and produced an album released by Cavernjatt owned by Blade "from Jestofunk".In 2005 they have started to collaborate with Dandi & Ugo, and they found together the record label "Italo Business"In 2006 they collaborated with Franz & Shape and released the succeseful single "The man who paid before" for Relish which was included in Tiga's DJ set.In 2008 they added to Italo Busines a new label, N.O.I.A. Records where they included a mixture of Indie Dance, New Wave and Techno Minimal music.Nowadays "Piatto" continue on releasing tracks and remix for several labels reaching always good positions in the charts.
