Bernabe Turletti, better known as Berni Turletti, is an Argentinian DJ and producer hailing from Villa Maria, Cordoba. He is best known for his releases on Balkan Connection, Hope Recordings, 3rd Avenue, and The Soundgarden, typically featuring smooth melodic sounds and progressive basslines.
Berni could often be found listening to bands such as Coldplay, Gensis, Gustavo Ceratti, New Order, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Spinetta in his younger years – all of which he still considers influences to this day. In the early 2000s he started drum and percussion lessons, which eventually gave rise to what would become a passion for electronic dance music.
Berni first started to mix electronic music in 2009 and quickly became heavily influenced by DJs such as Hernán Cattaneo, John Digweed, Nick Warren and Sasha. These artists, coupled with the Argentine underground scene, focused his taste for electronic music to progressive house and led him to start producing his own melodies.
