Start his dj'ing journey since he was in high school, Berik starts his journey as a regular club dj in his hometown. He finished his first basic dj class in early 2007 in Palembang. Never felt satisfied with his knowledge, he decides to go to Jakarta to satisfy his passion about advanced dj'ing. He goes to Spinach DJ School and takes master-class and producer-class in here, with Riri Mestica (well knowned dj / producer in Indonesia) as his direct tutor and also takes advanced battle class at Dopespinners DJ School, with Sonny DMC (2005 Indonesian DMC Champion & 2005 World DMC Champion Finalist) as his direct tutor.

In his early year as a dj, he has been playing in many big clubs and outdoor events at Palembang, Jakarta, Bandung, Bogor, Lampung and another major cities in Indonesia. Has been playing alongside with Riri Mestica, Romy, Bone, Milinka, Winky, Blanco and many other Indonesian top dj’s. In his very young age, he also has gaining many residency jobs in his hometown (Beta Houze Palembang, Putri Lounge Horison Hotel Palembang, Princess Club Palembang) and playing in a weekly radio program at Real Radio Palembang (97.5FM : Electronic Saturday) and OZ Radio Palembang (89.2FM : OZ Discoland).

His musical style was influenced by many nuskool turntablist dj’s, several names like DJ Unkut, DJ Fly, DJ Rafik, DJ Netik, DJ Craze and many nuskool turntablist dj. In his dj sets, he always put the skill & creativity in his number one priorities rather than playing “safe & regular” like other millions dj’s who put the "musical flow” as their main priorities. To add more advanced and unique musical sets, he always put some “digital touch” in his set, with connecting an effector or a midi controller (KORG Kaoss Pad KP3 / NI Maschine). His musical genre can be descibed as glitch hop and drumstep in his battle routine, electro house and dubstep in his club routine.
