Raised on turntablism and drum & bass, Bert got turned on to the “global bass” sound in the 2000s and soon his tracks began appearing in sets from Sinden, Toddla T, Brodinski, and Feadz. You may have heard his massive tracks on Man Recordings and Enchufada—he takes heavy influences from kuduro and baile and whips those together with a European big-room electro flair.
“Modern Vampires” has been a staple in our sets for months—a dreamy DJ-friendly intro that soon goes for the jugular, dropping into mega low-end and heavy kicks—real neck-snapping business. The EP rolls on with “Flute Thing,” an innocent sounding name for a track that’s a crazy mix of uplifting and hard: Pan chasing Mozart around a speaker stack. Tropical percussion and handclaps pair with razor-sharp synth work to form the ass-shaking backdrop of “Get Your Freak On”.
