Being a headliner at some of the biggest parties from L.A. to New York and numerous top billed events over seas has put Zernell in high demand.
Zernell was born in Chicago and started DJing at the age of 14. This was during the early years of house music and like a lot of Chicago teens he religiously listened to the Hot Mix 5 on WBMX . By 1986 most of his friends where into the Disco/House music culture and his best friend the infamous Mr. Gene Hunt was RON HARDY’s protégé. Zernell musically grew up in the Music Box listening to the sounds of Ron Hardy and was schooled by the master & protégé in the art of song selection and timing that drives dancers into a frenzy. Zernell’s Grimy style of music features some of the hottest and rarest disco songs and re-edits mixed just the right way to keep you dancing and wanting more, which has made Zernell one of the hottest dj’s in the underground disco scene today.
Zernell has done numerous parties including Chicago, Detroit, New York, Miami and LA. He has toured the U.K. and Europe and headlined parties in London, Amsterdam & Berlin. He has released frequent mixes on various websites such as Deep House Page and Bring the Heat, which gained him attention & fans of music lovers across the globe. Zernell’s love and passion for disco/house is as strong as it was in the 80’s and out of that passion Zernell created the disco edit label Grimy Edits, which have sold thousands of units worldwide.
