Italian DJ and producer Nicola Conte became famous with his loungey brand of jazz that relies extensively on bossa nova, but is also heavily influenced by the swinging soundtracks of Italian films in the '60s and '70s, plus touches of ethnic music and kitsch.Being part of the loose-knit ‘Fez collective’, centred in the Italian town of Bari, Conte did not only mastermind the Schema label, but also his own recording career, scoring an underground hit with first single "Bossa Per Due". Conte's critically acclaimed debut album Jet Sounds was followed by the remix album Jet Sounds Revisited in 2002 and two years later Conte debuted on Blue Note with Other Directions. Following his third studio album Rituals on Universal he satisfied his love for and dedication to Brazilian music compiling Viagem and Viagem 2 on Far Out in 2008 & 2009. In 2011 Nicola released the third part of the collection Viagem 3 next to his studio album Love & Revolution which has been released on the legendary Impulse Label and features a vast number of amazing and internationally known artists such as Jose James, Gregory Porter, Till Brönner and Magnus Lindgren.Meanwhile Viagem 5 has been released, also lots of Remix works - and his new studio album Free Souls came out on Schema Records.
