“If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere,” sang Sinatra about New York City, a town littered with hyper-competitive creators and the most fastidious consumers of culture. Indeed, New York City is where people come to be the best at their craft. It is here, where another New Jersey native, has crossed the Hudson, honed his artistry, and become enmeshed in the musical fabric of New York. 24 year-old Jenaux (Eugene Veltman) has been composing, producing, and performing electronic dance music for seven years, and his hard work & talent have made him a mainstay in New York’s hottest nightclubs, with recent residencies at Pacha & Finale. Jenaux routinely headlines his own shows around the east coast, and has directly supported a myriad of EDM stars including Knife Party, Zedd, Nervo, Porter Robinson, Mat Zo, Sebastian Ingrosso, & The Chainsmokers.
As Jenaux’s live performances have taken flight, his original productions have begun to make undeniable waves in the EDM community. Jenaux released his current single, Turn Your World Around (Big & Dirty), in February of 2014 to great acclaim. Upon hearing the record, Icon producer/DJ Laidback Luke, contacted Jenaux, noting that he loved the track and offering to add his own beloved flavor with an official edit. The resulting edit has taken the song to even greater heights, with Dancing Astronaut exclaiming, “The American producer’s already alluring piece gets treated with renewed energy through boosted sonics, beefed up synths and added percussion in true LBL fashion.” The track has since debuted on Hardwell on Air, climbed up the Beatport charts, and received support from artists including Tritonal, Thomas Gold, & Baggi Begovic.
In June of 2014, Epic Records released Jenaux’s official remix of Cher Lloyd’s single Sirens, from her new album “Sorry I’m Late.” The remix, the only official remix of the record debuted exclusively through Beats Music, and appears exclusively on copies of the album sold at Target.
Another recent single, Free To Rave (Big & Dirty Recordings), quickly made its mark with fans and critics alike. Noted Vibe Magazine of the track, “Free to Rave is a must have for any summer house party playlist.” Leading EDM blog, Less Than 3 applauded the tracks “bassline of epic proportion.”
Jenaux started studying music at the tender age of 5, with an intense regiment of classical theory & piano lessons. Years later, Jenaux incorporates that training into his compositions & production, understanding that there is no replacement for a meticulously constructed melody and rhythmic syncopation that kills the genre’s predictable precedent. With a deep musical proficiency, rapidly growing fan base, and the greatest city in the world as his home court, Jenaux is quickly climbing to the top of the heap.
