Vito Lucente (known as Junior Jack born August 31, 1971 in Italy) is a house music producer and DJ who has resided in Belgium since his teen years.
In the early years Vito Lucente produced several acid house and eurodance projects, mostly in collaboration with Eric Imhauser. However, his more famous project was as producer of the synth pop/eurorap band Benny B, with vocalist Amid Gharbaoui, DJ Daddy K and dance Serge "Perfect" Nuet. Lucente left the band after the second album, and he did not produce their last single.
In 1995, Lucente abandoned eurodance and adopted the name Mr. Jack (which would later morph into Junior Jack), dabbling in house music. He became well known for the singles "My Feeling", "Thrill Me (Such A Thrill)", "E Samba", "Stupidisco" and "Da Hype", the latter featuring vocals by Robert Smith from The Cure. His album Trust It was released to critical acclaim.
"My Feeling" and "Stupidisco" were built around vocal samples from, respectively, "Saturday Love" by Alexander O'Neal and Cherrelle, and "Dare Me" by the Pointer Sisters. His latest single was a remake of "Dare Me (Stupidisco)", with vocals from Shena, which reached #20 in the UK Singles Chart on 25th February 2007
Lucente has also worked with disco artist Oliver Cheatham under the name Room 5, achieving the #1 in the UK's Top 40 charts and the European Dance Charts with the single "Make Luv", which used samples from Cheatham's song "Get Down Saturday Night", released in 2003.
As a remixer, he has reworked tracks for artists such as Whitney Houston, Moby, Bob Sinclar and Utada. He has worked extensively in this area with partner Kid Creme.
