Opinions and thoughts of an expert ranter and raver

Artist Spotlight: Juventa

After hearing Juventa’s guest mix on Above & Beyond’s TATW 448, I was impressed by by this new dj taking the trance world by storm and decided to look into the guy.  I was SHOCKED at what I found out.  Juventa is just a kid! 17 years old and he’s already had releases from Armada, Anjunabeats, and Enhanced recordings.  I was immediately intrigued and decided I wanted to do an artist review on him and get to learn more about him.  At the ripe age of 21 (I’m referring to myself) 15-year old Jordin Post aka Juventa was releasing music onto major record labels as I slowly drank myself into comatose-like stages 6 nights a week.  At the age of 23 I’m a bit confused as to why this 17 year old is better than me and (possibly) always will be.  Even though I would consider him a man-child prodigy, I find it rare that anyone younger than me has both the talent and marketing abilities to get where he has managed to land today.  So what’s the big fuss about this 17 year old Dutch kid?  Well I decided to listen to some of his discography and was able to find some absolutely breathtaking tracks.  These are amongst my favorite tracks I peeped from him:

I must say I’m quite impressed with his grasp of trance and progressive and can appreciate everything he does for somebody that is so young.  Each of his tracks were beautiful, melodic, and complex.  The beats and sounds were perfect and I would never guess somebody who is still in HIGH SCHOOL  could have this type of musical talent as well as ties with the biggest names in trance, including ATB, Above & Beyond, and Tritonal.  Rock on Juventa, rock on.
