INTENSE AUDIO VISION
Since his early childhood in Zurich, music tapes and video games have been his favorite toys. His older sister’s interest in Disco music has played a key role in the growth of his love for electronic dance music. By 1987 he was much influenced by a Disco club in Zurich called Flamingo. This legendary club was possibly one of the first European clubs dedicated purely to House music. Stimulated by this new sounds, he started to deejay in different clubs in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. By 1992, he also started to produce his own tracks on his self-founded label No Acting Vibes and Motomusic.
Specialized in using a variety of analogue synthesizers and pedal effects, Dan Piu’s productions were known for its pure and warm analogue sounds. “The Shine EP” released in 1996 followed by the “Limitless Expanses EP” the “Innercity Terror EP” and the “Quenchy EP” was not only the result of his passionate work during years behind the machines, but also a praise of recognized DJ’s (Freddy Fresh, Terry Hunter, Jeff Mills, Todd Sines, Carl Craig etc. just to mention a few) who put his records on their Top Charts.
Dan Piu‘s art visions are versatile, it‘s obvious he has a variety of monikers to fullfil his different musicial ideas.
