Episode 076 of our ‘Fresh Facesʼ series comes-in from the freshly-based SD DJ, BERKO.
After 7 years of strength in the Windy City of Chicago, Rob Berkowitz, more known as ‘BERKOʼ to his friends, has recently moved back out to the west coast, landing himself in the “Big Box” of beautiful San Diego, CA. Closer to family, and way more doses of Vitamin D, is exactly what was needed for this veteran disc jock.
As an original member of the Vancouver Island movement, ‘House Ten85,ʼ it was back in 2006 that would see this Canadian transplant light a creative spark and vision to continue down the road less travelled and carve out his own path in the global music scene. In the summer of 2013, he decided it would be in “the birthplace of house music,” Chicago, where he then co-founded the artist and promotions collective, “3feetdeep.”
FFWD — Now just under a full calendar year as a California resident, he has slowly settled in through the Covid era and has luckily been able to play a handful of gigs virtually for the locally respected ‘Soul Workʼ & ‘Pineapple Liveʼ crews, as well was a recent guest for the ‘Clam Jamʼ collectiveʼs weekly night on #Twitch.tv. Upcoming — You can catch BERKO appearing LIVE in the ‘Vortexʼ with ‘Lee Reynoldsʼ coming up soon via DHTV.
