Roots
Stephane Pompugnac is an acclaimed DJ and producer from the south of France. His roots were surrounded by his fascination for music. Listening to pop, rock, and new wave, the moment that mattered most was when he found out about house in the late 80s. After finishing his studies he spent six months in London where he mixed at clubs such as Queen, Folies Pigalle, The Locomotive and Privilege. One year later he became the resident at Les Bains et Douche. Later in 1997, he was already a fairly famous DJ and reached out to friend Jean-Louis Costes, with whom he started events at the Paris Hotel Costes. The first compilation quickly turned into 10 and the ride of his life started at that moment.
