Born in london in the mid-sixties and citing his mum’ far out record collection as a major early influence, Jenö has always had a magical relationship with music. A relationship that has been strengthened by his unconventional upbringing, his five chaotic years as a punk musician and then his head first fall into the London warehouse scene of the mid-eighties. It was here that he begged for, borrowed and even stole his first records and turntables, developing a passionate love for dance music that led to many memorable gigs (including his own heady “Whoosh” parties) and spontaneous adventures, often with his old mates from the now infamous “Tonka Sound System”.
After heading to San Francisco in 1991 in search of a more psychedelic groove, he and several friends began the now legendary “Full Moon” parties. The friendly vibe and hedonistic atmosphere found at these free outdoor events attracted a large and diverse crowd of people, and set the tone for the future of the “underground” dance music scene in Northern California.
Inspired by the acid drenched, jazz laden, funk driven and disco’d out sounds of San Francisco’ past, Jeno along with the other “Wicked” dj’ has helped define an eclectic and soulful musical style that has become known as the “San Francisco Sound”.
Now after eleven years he has become one of most loved and sought after dj’ in the United States. His unique sound and superb mixing skills have gained him a following all over North America and parts of Europe. He has played at the “Rex Club” in Paris, the legendary “Twilo” in New York, “Industry” in Toronto, the “Ministry of Sound” in London, in Vancouver, Seattle, Los Angeles, Dallas, Montreal and in most major cities in the USA. He also runs the “Wicked” parties in San Francisco with the other members of the “Wicked Crew” and has played alongside their many guest dj’ including Louie Vega, Tony Humphries, Roger Sanchez, Stacy Pullen, DJ Pierre, Francois Kevorkian, Harvey, Kenny Hawkes and Chez Damier.
Jenö has released numerous mix tapes and CD’ including a mix for probably the most prestigious of all the house music CD sets in the US, the “United DJ’ of America” series by DMC and Moonshine, and has begun working in the studio on his own music. He has a remix of DJ Garth’ “20 minutes of Disco Glory” and Rocket’ “People” available on Grayhound Records. Also available are remixes of “We Come One” by Faithless on Cheeky Records and “Que Pasa” by Nigel hayes on Contrast recordings.
