Bert on Beats, a.k.a. DJ Critikal is the hottest new artist of Berlin based label Man Recordings. As a DJ he fuses the rich legacy of UK bass science with the beat alchemy of Angolan Kuduro and other “New World” genres , establishing a trans-national, hyper-hybrid sound that directs towards the future. In Estonia Bert has been a househould name since the mid 1990s. Starting his career as DJ Critikal, Bert soon became Estonia´s Nr.1 hip hop DJ, playing various club shows every week, and producing his own cuts. Bert soon moved to Drum n´Bass and released his first album in 1999 which was critically acclaimed in Estonia and Finland. In 2010 Bert On Beats was officially signed to Man Recordings with two Eps “Suomo” and “Alemão”. For “Suomo”, Bert On Beats collaborated with the Ghanaian singer and MC, Anbuley. For “Alemão” he worked with São Paulo based Baile Funk MC Gi – two tracks that illustrate the trans-globe music approach from Bert On Beats. In between his single releases, remixes followed for Buraka Som Sistema, Ku Bo, Gotan Project (another remix contest won), Munchi, Gaudi and Sekta. His tracks currently get support from world class DJs such as Diplo, Sinden, Skream, Feadz, Buraka Som Sistema, Foamo and Douster to name a few. Bert On Beats’ album release „Antenna Of Tallinn“ will quite likely propel Bert On Beats profile into new global realms. Catch the signals now as the brand new album is out worldwide!
