“One of the finest new producers around with quite simply, amazing production skills. Labels flying after him, his own super cool club night and, all in all, someone we are going to be hearing about for a very long time to come” – DMC Magazine
The last couple of years for Sonny Wharton have been phenomenal! Described by The Shapeshifters as “one of the most prolific producers out there” he’s remixed the likes of Fatboy Slim, Frankie Knuckles and The Temper Trap. Releasing singles on Size, Toolroom, Spinnin’ and Skint Sonny’s received regular support from house music heavyweights Pete Tong, Steve Angello, Roger Sanchez and Mark Knight whilst continuing to push his own label Whartone Records and dominate the download charts.
As a DJ Sonny shot to fame by winning a DJMag mix-tape competition for Renaissance leading to sets in Ibiza at Amnesia, a weekly residency at the infamous Manumission and Mixmag announcing Sonny as one of their original “Future Heroes” alongside the likes of Nic Fanciulli.
Over the last few years Sonny’s racked up slots for the who’s who of club land including sell-out shows at Space, Pacha and Ministry Of Sound. He’s held a monthly residency in Barcelona, regualrly rocks the likes of Global Gathering, V Festival, Wickerman and Isle Of Wight Festival and played to over 1 million people at The Berlin Love Parade.

He regularly appears for them at international trade shows and features prominently in their advertising campaigns both in press and on screen.
With Toolroom knighting Sonny "a certified member of the house music elite", the continued success of his own ‘Sound Of Whartone’ events in London and forthcoming collaborations with X-Press 2 and DJ Chus the future is looking bright!
