Vito Lucente have been on the dance scene for quite a while: under different aliases, of course. It seems that under the name 'Junior Jack', he established himself once and for all as a popular DJ. Although 'My Feeling' was based heavily on the Stardust phenomena, the inventive way he brought two disco samples together to create a new club stormer received unanimous praise amongst clubbers and dance music fans (Phats & Small later used the same formula on their hit 'Turn Around').
'Trust It' contains some good tracks, let's be honest. 'Da Hype' melts electro and house perfectly. The vocal version, with Robert Smith (from The Cure), is also an epic moment.
The production on the replayed samples is quite good. It helps to separate the elements better so the filters and other effects can be treated separately. The Roberta Flack interpolation on 'Luv 2 U' is quite a funny departure from the original version.
I never really liked "Thrill Me", an obvious blink to 'Burnin' by Daft Punk. Although Latin oriented, 'E Samba' use the same formula, with a bassline as identical.
The title track, 'Trust It' is not bad, with the voice of MC Shurakano found on some singles by Kid Creme (Vicente's protege). It seems 'Alone' borrow a bit of the flavor of 'People (Jeno's Stormy Weather Mix)' by Rocket (2000), but still nice to hear.
Musically, 'Trust It' fits in all the parameters of dance music and is enjoyable on every level.

It seems that lately a lot of producers/remixers are putting the money where their mouth is in the last half of 2004 and coming up with CDs of original material. Junior Jack's debut isn't necessarily groundbreaking but is well-equipped with a lot of styles and chart-topping hits that show off a lot of his influences (the deep-house/jazz flavor of "Alone", the electro/aggro feel of "Depression", and a number of tracks with a Latin vibe like "The Roots" or "Halo", to name a few). "Luv 2 U", his riff on Roberta Flack's "Feel Like Making Love" sped up to a garage house beat, "Must Be The Darkness", a spoken word affair with rock guitar mixed in, "Do It", his nod to Thomas Bangalter, and the title track could be possible singles in the coming months, in my opinion. Unlikely that will happen, though, since this already has four: "Thrill Me", with THAT keyboard riff; "E Samba"; and two of 2004's biggest hits: "Da Hype", looping a Bobby O riff, featured here in its original and vocal single forms (with The Cure's Robert Smith on the latter); and, of course, "Stupidisco" (or "Dare Me" part 3), with its memorable Pointer Sisters chorus that is recreated, not sampled. Here you get the original and, as a U.S. bonus, Hott 22's discofied and filtered remix. My only complaints are that he uses his Latin influences a bit too much here and especially when those tracks are too close together in the sequencing. BTW, there's a "parental advisory" sticker on the cover. This was likely done because of the artwork inside. There's nothing foul at all (language or otherwise)about this release.........unless you think that house music or Italians are really offensive. Don't be afraid to put your "Trust" in this CD; it just might surprise you.
