Zernell was born in Chicago and started DJing at the age of 14. His Gillie's style can range from the heart of deep disco to the soul of Chicago house with a grimy twist. He has done numerous parties in cities around the world. He has toured the U.K. and Europe and headlined parties in London, Amsterdam, Italy, Sweden, Paris, Switzerland & Berlin. Zernell’s passion for disco & house is as strong as it was in the 80s and refects in his extensive collection of rare vinyl. Out of that passion, Zernell created the label Grimy Edits, which has sold thousands of units worldwide and is a highly sought-after gem for the educated DJ and for the worldwide Discogs community.
