909originals chats to Gaetano Parisio about the return of seminal techno label Conform Records

Post Image

Since bursting on the scene in the mid 90, Gaetano Parisio has led the charge for Italian techno for more than two decades.

Along with compatriots such as Marco Carola, Danilo Vigorito and Rino Cerrone, Parisio helped establish his hometown of Naples as a mecca for tough, uncompromising beats with his Conform Records label setting the template for others (including a new generation of Naples artists.
