At the crest of House in San Francisco, at the helm of funky disco house, at the changing tide from vinyl to digital, stood DJ, label owner, producer and innovator, Jonny Phelps. Better known as Jonéné, he is synonymous with the notorious Stompy Stomp parties of the Bay, and with spinoff enterprise Stompy.com -- the first digital download site designed for DJs, established at the turn of the millennium. He cofounded and grew the 23-year-old Stompy legacy while touring in over 40 countries and releasing on over 30 labels. Birthed as a New Wave-inspired musician in 1984, Jonéné gravitated to SF in ‘94, where he co- founded label Panhandle Music three years later. Then he migrated to San Diego in 2001, where he co-launched follow-up label Safe In Sound music with means of releasing his own music. In 2002, now a global phenomenon, Jonny was recognized and honored in URB Magazine’s Top 100 Artists issue.
