Francesco Conti is a DJ and producer of electronic music who was born in Rome in the late seventies, he grew up amongst the radio station and rave scene in the Italian capital. He was moulded with the music that marked the end of the 80s and the early 90s, such as Acid House and Techno that over the years has reinterpreted these sounds and injected his own personal and original style.

It all started in 1992 whilst collaborating with some radio stations in the capital, Rome; where he played in major nightclubs. In the summer of 2003, he relocated to the Adriatic coast, where he continued on his DJ Adventure. In 2006 he gained some notoriety by winning the "Equinox DJ competition" against 16 Italian DJs in Riccione along the Adriatic coast in Northern Italy.

This award opened the doors to Ibiza, where he took part in the island's important events every year. Then about ten years ago he started several record collaborations, including 2017 to present with releases on Jambalay Records.

He currently collaborates with many online radio stations including United Techno Familia, and YouMixRadio. In these almost thirty years of activity, he has played with world-famous DJs, experiences that have enriched him, given new stimuli and made him love music increasingly, which he considers a universal language without borders or barriers.
