The Mental Groovers

Mr. Bernz

Mr. Bernz "The best DJs aren't the people that play the most popular tunes, its the person who plays the most unexpected tune at the right time" - DJ Jazzy Jeff.

 

Mr. Bernz, born and raised in the City of Gold, Johannesburg, South Africa, played at various national clubs and private functions steadily falling in love with the progression of house music. Starting his Dj career at the age of 14, Mr. Bernz is an old skool DJ from the days of vinyl through to the current floor fillers, and is known for throwing in an unexpected acapella or wicked transition.

 

Mr. Bernz's moved through to the land of sand and palm trees in Qatar where he is resident at popular night clubs and events, most notably "The Unknown Concert", Qatar's first gig of its kind. A love for all music encompassing multiple genres. He isn't limited and refuses to leave a crowd not wanting more. He isn't afraid to blend music that isn't usually accepted as mainstream.

 

The crowd is his muse and the music is for them.

Nelly Ortega

The evolution of Nelly Ortega is a result of the unique combination of his style, music selection, vision and work ethic. Nelly has established himself as one of the few respected and trusted DJs able to stand on middle ground — that highly coveted space in-between mainstream and underground music.
