Kano

Real Name:
Glenn Edritch White
Profile:
Italian disco/italo-disco/electro project.

Based in Italy, it is led by producers, songwriters, and musicians Luciano Ninzatti (guitars), Stefano Pulga (keyboards), and Matteo Bonsanto (Producer), often with deep r'n'b vocals from Glen White.

They released three early 1980s albums, scoring dancefloor smash hits with "I'm Ready" (1980), "It's A War" (1980), and "Can't Hold Back (Your Loving)" (1981). Although Kano is considered the starter of italo-disco by many, it also served as a bridge to electro and breakdance later in the 1980s.

NOTE:
- For the drum & bass producer, please use Kano (3).
- For the UK grime/hip hop MC, please use Kano (4).

Why is this group accredited to Glen White in the way that it is here? Surely the 'real name' tag should go! Glen was not on the first Kano LP at all! I was going to edit the artist and change this here but I see that there seems to have been some discussion/lots of changes/ re-changes and voting that has gone on around this issue. Glen will always be associated with his time with Kano and marketed himself following the break up of the group as 'Glen White is Kano' but I feel it is grossly unfair to the other group members that he should in effect be displayed here as the group.

Kano, being one of the real supergroups of Italo Disco, were some kind of pioneers when they relased their "Kano"-LP back in 1980. The notorious bassline of "I'm ready" has been sampled countless times, as well as lots of their other tracks. They weren't really stuck in this messy Italo Disco thing, their sound with a touch of electro was adopted by the b-boy scene and entered dancecharts and even pop-charts around the globe, peaking at #10 in Germany with "Another Life" in 1983.
