Bernz was born 1979 in Cape Town and grew up in the suburbs of early Table View.
Inspired by the electronic scene after a night at a Vortex featuring Matsuri Productions legend, Tsuyoshi Suzuki, Berns began DJing psytrance in 1997. With gigs at legendary venues, Getafix, upstairs bar and Labyrinth to name a few, Bernz proved that his style of music spoke to a wide spectrum of the early Cape Town club scene.

after 2 years of traveling and increasing his knowledge on sound design, Bernz returned to his hometown in 2008 where he was promptly signed to Beartrap productions, one of Cape Towns premier psytrance organisations, as resident DJ.
Since then Bernz has performed as resident at most Beartrap events as well as others such as Alien Safari, Groovy Troopers, Origin Festival and in 2010 becoming resident Dj at Vortex.
Berns is described as a versatile DJ, reading the crowd, knowing how to get full impact from the dance floor. Conquering styles from full-on psytrance, ambient, progressive and techno with effortless style.
His psytrance sets are dynamic, psychedelic and suited to getting low down and dirty under the heat of the African sun.
His progressive and techno set are full of groove, always interactive, making it impossible to leave the dance floor.
Berns is a true Cape Town treasure and has shared the line up with the likes of Tron, Dicktser, Zen Mechanics, Avalon, Materia, Ital, Protoculture, Headroom ,CPU, Menog and many more.
