Profile of the performer Cappella: An Italo-house production team employing up to ten different studios, at least a trio of producers for every production and scores of session workers, Cappella is mostly the creation of producer [a=Gianfranco Bortolotti]. Undoubtedly influenced by [l=Motown]'s assembly-line aesthetic (as well as the 1980's British dance team of [a20942]), Bortolotti coordinated the work of longtime producers team of [a=DJ Professor], [a=Mauro Picotto] AKA [a=R.A.F.] and [a=Pierre Feroldi] AKA DJ Pierre (not the Chicago producer) to create dozens of European club/chart hits under the aliases Cappella, [a=49ers], [a=Fargetta], [a=R.A.F.], [a=Club House] and [a=East Side Beat]. For good or ill, Bortolotti's productions were most responsible for the Italian house phenomenon of the late 1980's and early 1990's, based on an often-maligned push-button production blueprint which includes only the cheesiest melodies, samples, piano lines and diva vocals. Each single produced by Bortolotti's Media Productions underwent rigorous testing and remixing for maximum airplay in each country it was released, with only Bortolotti holding the final word on the final product. Inspired by the productions of Italo-disco DJ [a=Pierre Feroldi], Bortolotti began mixing around Italy while at school in the late 1970's. The Cappella Project had already debuted as a production team by the end of the decade, though Bortolotti did little more than mix in the music industry until the mid-'80s. In 1987, he produced Cappella's "Bauhaus (Push The Beat)", a club hit throughout Europe and the UK. The following year brought the contintent-wide Top 10 hit "Heylom Halib", which presaged a wave of similar-sounding Italian house tracks during 1989-90. Bortolotti recorded a Cappella album (the cash-in heavy "Heylom Halib"), and scored again with the singles "Be Master In One's Own House" and "House Of Energy Revenge". To his credit, he did recruit seminal diva [a=Loleatta Holloway] for the single "Take Me Away", less successful than the chart-entries but much better.

Throughout the 1990's, Cappella was one of the most thoroughly unartistic Eurodance acts - and for the most part, proud of it. After several additional 1992-93 hits (Including "U Got 2 Know", based around a sample from [a=Ralphi Rosario]'s seminal "You Used To Hold Me" featuring the vocals of [a=Xaviera Gold]), Bortolotti decided to make an act of Cappella with the addition of two Brits: [a=Rod Bishop] (formerly with [a=Positive Gang]) and [a=Kelly Overett] (a vocalist who had worked with [a=SL2]). The singles "U Got 2 Let The Music" and "Move On Baby" became Cappella's biggest hits, hitting number one in several countries during 1994. The album "U Got 2 Know" did appreciably well, though Overett left by 1995 (to be replaced by [a=Alison Jordan]). Soon however, Cappella appeared to be running on steam. The 1995-96 singles like "Tell Me The Way" and "I Need Your Love" barely made the European charts, and their 1996 album "War In Heaven" fared poorly (though it was released in America).
