Monday Wrap-Up 9.23.13: Tunes from Victor Niglio, Juventa, Belanger, and a mix by the Knocks!

In typical Monday fashion my inbox was flooded today with promo emails from across the globe, featuring the latest tracks by bedroom producers,  up-and-comers, and established names. I figured why not start off today’s wrap-up with some “Go to War” House music and a shot of “Jager”? In celebration of hitting 20,000 Facebook fans, Victor Niglio released his newest banger called – you guessed it – “Jager”. The Philadelphia native put together something really fun with this one, taking the sound of the Summer (yes, triplet-infused “Go to War” style Big Room House) and putting a couple great twists on it. We are treated to a nice piano intro and some big synths, but the drop is really where this thing shines. In particular pay attention to the second drop, which is a lot crazier than the first and features a sound I’ve yet to hear in these types of main stage festival anthems. Free download for all his fans and keep an eye out for his next one called “Jiggy”.

Next up how about a little Trance? It’s not often I post something from the Trance world, but you better believe that when I do it’s worth your time. Enter Jordin Post, commonly known as Juventa, who hails from – *gasp* – the Netherlands. Trance legend Max Graham just released The Remixes – Part 2 and as part of that EP he features Juventa’s “Private” remix of “Still There’s You” ft. Jeza.  At just 18 years of age, I’ve noticed Juventa’s name popping up more and more on various mixes and podcasts, and don’t think I haven’t been paying attention. With his first release at just 15 years old, Juventa has quickly established himself thanks to diverse productions and remixes across leading labels (Armada, Anjunabeats), as his constantly evolving sound continues to attract new fans to his fresh take on Trance – a sound that combines hard-hitting intros/drops with uplifting and sexy breaks. The production quality on this one is through the roof and if you like what you hear show some love!

This last one is an impressive remix by New York resident Matt Belanger, who goes by just Belanger as his stage name. We first caught wind of Belanger when Benzi’s Get Right Radio Summer 2013 dropped, featuring Belanger’s mashup of the classic “Creep”. This time he’s back with an awesome remix of the Nu-Disco/French House track “What’s Going On” by French producer Monsieur Adi. I like this remix so much because I literally had no idea what direction it was going in until the Electro-House and wobble-filled drop we’re treated to. The soulful vocals and 90s House chords really threw me off the scent but I do like a nice surprise now and then. Unfortunately I don’t have any information on a download or release date, so for now just enjoy the SoundCloud stream and make sure to keep an eye on Belanger!

Finally I wanted to call your attention to the Knocks‘ latest mix, this time done for THUMP. If you know anything about the Knocks you already know this is a must-listen, filled with plenty of Disco House, Deep House, and soulful goodness. Anytime you can end a track with a Hot Natured tune you’ve got a winner in my book! Track list after the jump!
