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.
He grew up 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 him one of the hottest dj’s in the underground dance scene today.
Zernell is consistently representing his Grimy style at parties in Chicago, Detroit, New York, Miami and LA and has toured the U.K. and headlined parties in Paris, Switzerland, Sweden, London, Amsterdam, Italy & Berlin. Being a headliner at some of the biggest parties and top billed events over seas has put Zernell in high demand.
He has released frequent mixes on various websites such as Deep House Page, Bring the Heat and Soundcloud 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 and the Chicago tracks label Grimy Trax which have sold thousands of units worldwide.
Up next for Zernell is Crate Diggers record fair and after-party. He will be cohosting the event with Discogs on August 29th at White Owl Social club in Portland and Lot 613 in LA on October 17th.
