Nicola Conte is a DJ and producer from Bari, Italy known for introducing an innovative style of acid jazz that incorporates bossa nova themes, melodies drawn from Italian film scores of the 1960’s, easy listening themes, and ethnic Indian music. Conte’s first album was Jet Sounds of 2000 and the single “Bossa Per Due” gained international recognition and was an underground hit. It was used almost immediately for a prime-time commercial for Acura automobiles. The album and single were able to situate the Italian producer near the top of the acid jazz pantheon, and is often tapped by those in the know to produce their albums in the genre.
