AllMusic Review by

Italian producer and label-boss Nicola Conte had zero problems drafting a lineup of producers for the remix album following on from his debut Jet Sounds (or Bossa per Due, in its American reissue). Stateside financiers Thievery Corporation balance the bossa with a little hip-hop for their redo of his breakout "Bossa per Due," while Japan's Kyoto Jazz Massive delivers with a sprightful post-production of "The In Samba" and Koop re-imagine "Fuoco Fatuo" as a sweaty lounge workout. Others contributing creative covers include Finland's Nuspirit Helsinki and Bavarian favorites Les Gammas, but Conte also adds a trio of bracing new tracks to satisfy fans.
