Eclectic is one of the few words you can use to define Bernto’s style. His tastes span a broad spectrum that includes elements of house, breaks, techno, electro and progressive, appreciating the deep, the melodic and the groovy as well as the tough, the dirty and the ravenously destructive. Fusing the best of the various bunches with a keen sense for reading dance floors and building excitement, he forges a musical experience that’s permeated with incontrovertible fun.
In the seven years since he took up djing, Bernto has won the hearts and feet of revelers from east to west. Beginning his career in Nova Scotia, he developed a reputation for consistently delivering top shelf musical selections from across the gamut, mixed with technical finesse and artful programming and delivered with contagious enthusiasm. Playing bars, clubs and festivals across the Maritimes, he has shared stages with the likes of A.Skillz, Mark Farina, Lee Coombs, DJ Dan, Donald Glaude, DJ Heather, JELO, Christian Smith, MO7s, The Phat Conductor/ill.Gates, DJ Falcon, Mat The Alien, DJ Sneak, Robb G & Myagi, and he has rocked crowds as well as any of them himself. Career highlights to date include opening for Meat Katie in Halifax and destroying the dj stage at last year’s Evolve Festival at the peak of Friday night.
Now based out of Calgary, Bernto continues to refine his art, to scour the new releases, and to assist grateful dance floors in getting their grooves on. The West will learn what the East has known for years: that his taste and his skills, but especially his sincere passion for music and his irrepressible drive to share it with others, guarantee a Bernto show to be a good time
