HOUSEPITALITY ft. JENO, PAUL CAREY, & JP SOUL
( ( ( HOUSEPITALITY ) ) ) proudly welcomes back one of the most crucial figures in the entire history of underground house music with a headlining set for our beautiful, tasteful crowd of savvy, motivated dancers:
::JENO VOID (Wicked | SF)::
::PAUL CAREY (Tweekin | SF)::
Groove Lounge Takeover by
::JP SOUL (Roam Recordings | SF)::
This isn’t Jeno’s first appearance at our party, and won’t be his last, as should be obvious to those who attend our party.
For most of our fans, our headliner Jeno's name speaks for itself. For over 20 years he's been one of the most sought-after DJs in San Francisco, bringing his psychedelic and funky house sound to generations of partygoers, from warehouses to beaches, under full moons or hot lights.
For those who don't know, he's one of the founding members of the Wicked crew, along with fellow British adventurers Garth, Thomas, & Markie. These gents traveled over after falling in love with the 80s warehouse scene in London. They were looking for something a bit more groovy and found it in San Francisco (despite having to bring much of it themselves).
Paul Carey’s underground reputation in SF runs deep. A former honcho at SF’s infamous Tweekin’ Records, Paul’s a bedrock figure of SF’s house community. We’ve hosted him many times at our party and wouldn’t do so didn’t always put the dance floor into action.
JP Soul has played our party more than almost any other non-resident, and always lays down the thickest, most juicy disco-flavored back room sets. It’s been a while, so come down and check it out. He’s worth the price of admission alone.
We love you. We got you.

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/
An avid record collector for almost 20 years, Paul Carey got his first taste of house music in the early underground house scene of Northern California circa 1993: A heady mix of full-moon parties, beach parties, dirty warehouses, laid-back clubs, and crazy house parties coupled with psychedelic, funky, deep house. In 2000, Paul started managing the infamous Tweekin Records and was also one of the stores buyers. Pauls talent and musical depth of field make him a standout DJ. He brings a fresh and innovative approach to the music, which assures him longevity in this highly competitive and progressive music industry. Paul has become a well-established artist in the San Francisco underground music scene. He plays cutting edge music , with one eye firmly fixed on the dancefloor at all times. His influences include: SFs legendary Wicked crew (Jeno, Garth & Markie Mark), Mark Farina, DJ Harvey ,Doc Martin, the DIY crew (UK) , DJ Buck. Pauls shared the decks with such internationally acclaimed DJs as Mark Farina ,Diz , Joshua (IZ) , Luke Soloman, Derrick Carter , Miguel Migs, Jeno, Doc Martin, DJ Harvey , Dan Ghenacia , Z-Trip, Peanut Butter Wolf, etc. Paul has played at every major venue and multiple underground parties in San Francisco. 1015 , Monarch , 222 , Ruby Skye , The End Up ,and The Top are just a few of the clubs in San Francisco. Aside from playing all over San Francisco, he also played out of town as well. London , Mexico (Tulum & Playa Del Carmen) , Hawaii , New York , Philly , L.A. & San Diego just to name a few.
San Francisco dj, producer, and label boss at Roam Recordings and part time lover with the 40 Thieves.
JP Soul started djing high-school dances and house parties in the 80s. The gear he used was primitive - tape decks, cd players, and an old record player with no pitch control - but early on he developed a knack for working a dancefloor.
In the 90s JP picked up a pair of Technic 1200s and soon after he was regularly djing at raves around the East Coast, Mid-West, and Canada. He also started hosting underground parties and a weekly club event in Buffalo that brought in artists such as Robbie Hardkiss, Dubtribe, Corey Black (from 40 Thieves), Onionz, and many other out-of-town and local acts. After finishing school in Buffalo, JP Soul moved to San Francisco to rejoin friend and dj partner Chad Mitchell for a weekly residency at a popular dj bar in the Mission district called Liquid.
At the same time, in the early 2000s, JP Soul and Chad Mitchell started the Roam Recordings record label and released their own music along with now familiar names like Justin Martin, Joshua/DJ IZ, Sammy D (from Pillow Talk), Demarkus Lewis, Lance DeSardi, Hesohi, and Rhythm Plate. The label ran 12 releases before taking a break in the mid 2000s. JP also took a little break at this time to work, travel, and do some soul searching. Realizing that life was missing something, JP started djing again. Mostly at dirty disco parties around San Francisco. Djing lead back to the studio and life is complete again.
At the present when JP Soul is not in the studio he can be found djing around SF at clubs such as Monarch, F8, and Hawthorne.
