Jody Bernal was born on the 12th of November 1981 in Bogota Colombia. On nearly theÂ age of 3 months he was adopted by a Dutch family and raised in the city of Delft.
As anyone from Holland will know, at the age of only 18, he has scored an enormousÂ number one hit with the remake of the Argentinian summer song â€˜Que Si, Que Noâ€™. UntilÂ this year, this song is still the longest nominated number one hit in the Dutch music history,Â 15 weeks to be exact! Several hits followed, songs as â€˜Oh Bamboleroâ€™, â€˜Un Beso Masâ€™, â€˜MeÂ and Youâ€™, â€˜Dreamsâ€™ and â€˜Chica Bonitaâ€™, from which he has received numerous awards andÂ golden record statuses. Jody has been, due to his success, a public figure ever since. BeingÂ young and restless, he often received publicity in the media. Sometimes good, sometimesÂ bad..
When Jodyâ€™s interest in â€˜house musicâ€™ started to grow, he started producing his own music.Â Through discipline and persistence he educated himself in the craft of producing music. HisÂ preference goes out to music for the clubs and festivals. He started DJâ€™ing as a familiar faceÂ and suddenly got embraced by the club scene in Amsterdam. Starting as a resident DJ inÂ the trendy and gay friendly Club â€˜NYXâ€™ in Amsterdam, people started noticing his DJÂ abilities and rediscovering his quality as a performer. Jodyâ€™s eclectic sound, being a popularÂ mix of house, disco and all time hits, made the promoters from events nationwide wantingÂ to book his passionate DJ set.
As of now, Jody Bernal has built up a great list of events he has performed at, like ValtifestÂ Festival, Solar Festival, Bungalup, Freshtival , Wish Outdoor, Amsterdams Verbond andÂ many more. He has started his own club concept, â€˜Sjiek de Friemelâ€™, which has become aÂ popular event in three major cities in the Netherlands.Â He has even gotten rid of all clichÃ©s of the â€˜Child Pop Starâ€™ and has become a cult, DJÂ personality in a vibrant Dutch club scene.
With new repertoire coming up, Jody Bernal is set on adding some kick in his reinventedÂ career. And sometimes during his DJ set, when the vibe is just right, he even sings â€˜Que Si,Â Que Noâ€™ live to show the crowd that he is still proud of where he came from..
