About Room 5
"Happy Music", a track from Vito Lucente's Room 5 Music & You: The Album (2004) album, is the best description of his sound - upbeat funky filtered house with a slick soul vocal, all wrapped in crystalline production. Born in Italy, Vito grew up in Brussels and released his first productions in the 90's as 'Kaf'Ã©, 'Hugh K' and 'Mr. Jack'. It was his next alter-go - 'Junior Jack' that really put him on the map, with "My Feeling" (2000) and then "Thrill Me" (2000) leading to a residency at London's Ministry of Sound. Partnering with Kid CrÃ¨me, a series of remixes and compilations followed, and from there he re-named himself Room 5 for the release of "Make Luv" (2003). Using Oliver Cheatham's 80's hit "Get Down Saturday Night" as a base, he added his signature funky house style and stormed the top of the charts. Sounding like a blend of Daft Punk, Felix Da Housecat and Modjo, subsequent singles "Music & You" and "Think About You" offered more soul-house anthems and floor-filling disco-esque moments for lovers of quality 21st century party music everywhere.
