Acclaimed producer and DJ Vito Lucente has been releasing records under many different names but his best known moniker is without a doubt Junior Jack.
Despite his extensive work as a producer and re-mixer, ‘Trust It’ is Junior Jacks’ hotly anticipated debut full-length release. It will hit the market in September 2003 and is promising to set another standard in the history of dance music.
Vito caught the house music virus in the early 90’s and soon started to record tracks under different names including Kafé (‘Can You See It’), Hugh K (‘Shine On’) and Mr. Jack (‘Only House Music’).
His first recorded success under the name of Junior Jack was with the single “My Feeling” on PIAS recordings in 2000 which entered all the national charts in Europe, the US and Australia. It was also the first time a Benelux based producer reached the top spot of the European dance charts.
Junior Jack’s next release proved to be a milestone in his career. "Thrill Me’ was released in February 2002 and showed Vito’s commitment to the underground house sound at a time when his remixes and production skills were already much in demand by increasingly successful clients.
‘Thrill Me’ was a huge club hit that was immediately picked up by many top DJs who made it a dancefloor anthem across the world. With this track he firmly established the distinctive sound of the irresistible pumping bassline that has become one of his trademark.
The name Junior Jack quickly rose to fame on the dance scene and with it came more request on remixes for artists including Bob Sinclair, Moby and ATFC. His DJ schedule also remained very busy, playing regular slots at all the superclubs around the world including a residency at the Ministry Of Sound, teaming up with Kid Creme.
In the meantime Vito’s restless creative output under different monikers did not slow down throughout this busiest period in his career. His signature continued to appear on many successful dancetracks.
Most recently, Vito topped the UK singles chart with ‘Make Luv’ released under the name Room 5 on his own label Noisetraxx. The single, which was released in March 2003, kept the no. 1 position for 4 weeks making one of the most successful dance track ever in the UK. In Europe, ‘Make Luv’ held on to its top rank of the European dance charts for an incredible 6 weeks in a row. The track went on to sell a grand total of 500.000 copies worldwide
But whilst ‘Make Luv’ is still continuing to dominate local airplay and dance charts, Junior Jack is already creating dancefloor frenzy with his new single ‘E Samba’ which is currently taking the clubscene by storm.
This has only fired up the anticipation for Junior Jack’s debut album. Can he live up to the high expectations that have been created with ‘Thrill Me’ and ‘E Samba’? The album title should put those concerned at ease; ’TRUST IT!
