"...the most visionary and perhaps biggest PROGRESSIVE CUMBIA master!" (GENERATIONBASS September 19, 2010) "...this Colombian genius, who keeps expanding his horizon so extraordinarily that he might just be the most creative guy in Tropical music today." (CLUBFONOGRAMA January 28, 2010 ) “Pernett is one of the referents in modern Colombian music. This pioneer of the flourishing alternative movement in his country brings us 'El Mago', an album thatshows a folkloric sensibility touched up with electronic rythms.”('MUSICA COLOMBIANA DE AVANZADA' SBS Radio Online. Australia. Jan. 2010 ) “Pernett adds electronic beats to the music of both Colombian coasts and the resultis the excellent album 'El Mago'. However, 'El Mago;' is a folkloric piece of work, where musicians from the Caribbean and the Pacific join to create contemporary Colombian sounds.” ('EL NUEVO FOLCLOR ELECTRÓNICO DE PERNETT', Radio Gladys Palmera, Spain, NOV. 2009) Pernett is a prolific artist. This visionary of new universal sounds, closes 2010 with an optimum balance. He is definitely going through an amazing creative stage, in which his studio is a laboratory for constant sound and visual experimentation. It is important to highlight that Pernett is now a truly independent artist who manages his career through the new media and digital distribution. His strategy includes a constant bombing of music for free downloads. Pernett is also the head of Comunidad Serankua, an independent artist collective , (comunidadserankua.wordpress.com), where he is a blogger that interviews the community's artists, covers events and features players of the new colombian music scene. His fourth album, titled "El Mago" (The Wizard), is taking him far! This past summer was spent in Spain where he performed at the Pirineos del Sur Festival, Casa de Americas in Madrid and the concert for the Bicentennial of Colombia's independence in the Cubierta de Leganes. The album El Mago is actually playing all over the planet with rave reviews from press in countries like Australia, Spain and USA. It is also nominated as Best Artist Pura Sabrosura at the Premios Shock 2010. Apart from composing, producing, mixing and singing , Pernett shows us his fokloric side by playing percussions and the 'gaita', which is an integral part of his show. All of this without leaving behind his love for technology which make him and electronic artist that handles synthesis and video. He is also in constant collaboration with different artists from all over the planet. The most recent collaboration was a cover of New Order's "Blue Monday" . For this very special version he invited Will Holland, Quantic (acordeon) and Lido Pimienta (voice). On top of this he recently edited some very special remixes for internet, his mixtape Afromidi Caribeño stands out , and has received excellent reviews in specialized blogs. In 2002, Pernett began working on his first release in Bogota. It is during this process that he meets Richard Blair, who apart from engineering and co-producing his first two releases, invited him to make part of Sidestepper. Pernett toured widely with Sidestepper in USA, Mexico, Canada and Europe. The first result of his broad musical experience was ‘Musica Pa Pick Up’ EP (Sony, 2004). Two big hits came out in this work: ‘Huele a Mariacachafa’ and ‘Caribbean Raver’. After an extensive European tour promoting his first EP, he then releases “Cumbia Galactica” EP(2006). In 2008 he released his first full album “Arbol”, a ground breaking work with collaborations from Visitante Calle 13, Son Palenque, Sergio Arias from Malalma, Tostao from Chocquibtown annd Li Saumet from Bomba Estereo. These three releases are considered important exponents of new Colombian music. With 'El Mago' Pernett positions himself as a natural leader of this modern urban folklore, breaking barriers and experimenting with new elements. For this album he was based in Cali where he connects with Hugo Candelario and explores the traditional pacific coast rhythms. On top of this the album has the symphonic touch given by the first string quartet of Cali's Orquesta Filarmonica . 2011 will be a year of great international activity for Pernett. There are several releases in the works, he is finalizing his fifth album and preparing for international festivals and tours already programmed.

A real artist that follows his instincts and his roots,taking them to the next level and presenting them to the world in an album called 'El Mago'. This CD will travel in time transforming Pernett into a pioneer and fearless Latin American producer.”(CD REVIEW, LA FABRIKA USA Nov. 2009)
