Bert started DJing in the early 70’s at the traditional house or block parties in Hollis,
Queens – Home of Russell Simmons, DMX, LL Cool J, Run DMC and a host of countless
others. His big break came, when he was hired to play private parties at Studio 54,
New York City’s illustrious nightclub, and playground for the rich and famous. From
there he went on to work for illustrious Prelude Records. From the late 70’s to the 80’s
Prelude was NY’s Premier dance label with Francois K doing all of Prelude’s mixes. The
NY disco scene was in full swing, and Bert had residencies at many of New York’s top
clubs including Playboy Club, Pippins, Xenon’s, Bond’s, Mudd Club, and Infinity. With
all this happening the wonderful Reade St was soon to become the legendary
Paradise Garage. By now, Bert was playing private parties for the likes of Mick
Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Diana Ross, Halston, Grace Jones, Marvin Gaye, and Steve
Having met the Thompson Twins in NY, he met them again with producer Alex Sadkin
recording their “We are Detective’s” LP. He was asked to remix the 12-inch “Lies”. With
that becoming a Top 10 hit in England and US. After that came a variety of remixes
for the Style Council, Level 42, Paul McCartney, Duane Eddy, Chic, Depeche Mode,
Terumasa Hino, Big Audio Dynamite, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Luther Vandross, Omar,
and a host of others. When Rusty Egan and Steve Strange opened Camden Palace,
he got a job DJing along with Colin Favour and Evil Eddie Richard’s. Moving between
NY, London, and Brussels, he alternated between DJing and Remixing.
In 1991, he met his old friend Justin Berkmann who was building a new “Paradise
Garage sound system” in a new club in London, which was to open up in
September… The club was none other than the Ministry of Sound. Bert had stopped
DJing to concentrate on Remixing so he said he would do lights, (as most NY DJ’s had
done), for a while to get his club ear’s back but he wanted to play music again.
Ended up being one of the first ever resident’s at Ministry of Sound, along with Larry
Levan & Justin Berkmann. Since then, this superlative DJ, Producer and Remixer has
been blessed with the good fortune to travel across the globe spinning records in
almost every major nightclub nightclub you can think of.
