DJ KERRY & WISEACRE present BACK-2-BACK :: JENO :: GARTH
(((6 HOUR SET)))

it comes with great pleasure that i am teaming up w/ DJ KERRY and finding the moment to host these two djs responsible for my journey into underground dance music. yes… nearly 20 years ago GARTH dropped several of my favorite AM radio childhood tunes including FLY LIKE AN EAGLE (STEVE MILLER) and I FEEL LOVE (DONNA SUMMER) at a WICKED VALENTINES PARTY here in LA. needless to say this rock n' roll-punk rock kid was moved and converted to a music and community i had never known. these two fellas have always stayed true to the music and the community… probably due to the fact they had HUGE hands in creating it! welcome to this very special sunday edition of BACK2BACK w/ JENO & GARTH… 10 years strong! the union of a JENO-GARTH soundtrack with the vibe of ACABAR can only be golden. per their request, the fellas will play ALL six hours of the party!

Fueled by an enigmatic mystique, DJ Jenö has remained one of San Francisco's most beloved and sought after DJs for over two decades. Developing a passionate love for music from an early age he spent several years as a punk musician & songwriter, before discovering djing and falling into the vibrant London warehouse party scene of the mid 80s. Once Acid House fever hit the UK, Jenö never looked back, becoming known for his heady Whoosh parties, and his involvement in the early days of the notorious Tonka Sound System.

Inspired by Tonka's cheeky f**k the rules attitude, and in search of a more psychedelic groove, Jenö, along with his British cohorts Garth, Markie & Thomas headed to San Francisco in the early 90s. This was the beginning of the now world renowned Wicked Crew, who were instrumental in firing up the SF dance music scene with their now legendary “Full Moon†parties. These wild & free outdoor gatherings were the foundation for an eclectic and soulful underground dance scene, and the driving force of the growing rave community on the West Coast.

By the mid 90s, Jeno's musical talents and commitment to the dance floor had helped inspire and define a new “San Francisco sound,†bringing international attention to the city's burgeoning dance music scene. With all eyes on San Francisco, DMC sought out Jenh's talents for a mix on their prestigious CD series, United DJs of America. Joining the ranks of legends Frankie Knuckles, David Morales, Little Louie Vega and Doc Martin, he put together a mix of fresh local music and classic house sounds that helped put San Francisco firmly on the dance music map.

In 1995, he and the Wicked Crew took things to the next level, importing a custom made Tony Andrews designed Turbosound system from the UK. With Wicked very much in demand there was nothing else to do but hit the road, piling into a beautifully restored 1947 Grayhound bus with their own band of merry pranksters, delivering their soulful psychedelic sounds with a rock'n'roll attitude that took the U.S by storm. The touring continued through the late 90s, including some unforgettable stops at Burning Man, Reggae on the River, and even a Jane's Addiction concert in 2001.

As the new millennium approached, Jena took his talents to the studio and began producing his own unique take on dance music. He met all expectations with several remixes on fellow Wicked DJ Garth's Greyhound label, including the internationally acclaimed “Stormy Weather†remix of Rocket’s “People." This was followed by remixes on Cheeky, Turnaround Sound, NRK & others. Jenö’s production talents aren’t limited to the dance floor, having worked on some dark brooding indie music in recent years, and currently producing live acid house for his monthly "Cult of the Acid House" party.

In 2004, Wicked disbanded after 13 years of amazing collaboration. Undeterred Jenö and Garth have kept the spirit alive with their regular Back2Back appearances up and down the West Coast; a fun loving and boundary pushing musical romp through the last 40 years of dance music.

In 2011, Wicked reformed with a “Twenty Years of Disco Glory,†reunion tour encompassing 13 cities across the country. The success of the tour has put a vital missing piece back into the global dance community, and a newly inspired Wicked will be hitting the road again in 2012 and beyond.

Jenö’s mythical mixing talents have translated far and wide with a diverse international cult following. He has demonstrated these talents on the decks in the premier clubs across the globe, including the legendary Twilo in NYC, The End, Fabric & Ministry of Sound in London, Unit in Tokyo and the Rex Club in Paris. Jenö continues to perform & present music with a unique and psychedelic perspective, djing regularly again across the US, as well as hosting his own musically mischievous cult radio show - Noise from the Void, on http://mixlr.com/jenovoid/


about GARTH:
https://soundcloud.com/grayhound

DJ Garth is a pioneering House music DJ who is largely credited with both defining and capturing the sound of San Francisco house music in the mid-1990s. As a recording artist, his production is featured on several San Francisco club anthems such as "Twenty Minutes of Disco Glory". He co-founded the Wicked Sound System and established a series of memorable underground parties which were important in putting San Francisco on the club/rave map.

Born and raised in England, Garth moved to San Francisco in 1990 and became a key player in the city's exploding dance scene. He organized the Full Moon events that led to increased underground interest in rave culture, and in 1991, he led the Wicked Sound System venture with friends and fellow DJs Jenö, Thomas Bullock and Markie. By 1994 the team had saved enough money to buy a custom Tony Andrews-designed Turbosound system, teaming up with a 1947 Greyhound bus which allowed the Wicked act to tour the States.

This annual tour along with early appearances at Burning Man & Reggae on the River Festivals gave them the credibility to produce their own music and start their own record label. Wicked Records' first (and most successful) release was DJ Garth's 1996 collaboration with E.T.I., "20 Minutes of Disco Glory," which remains a popular House track. It was featured in the soundtrack for the movie Groove.
