Born Colton Alexander Bertram on the 5th of July 1999 at All Saints General Hospital, he was the first and only child of the newly-wed couple of Patricia and Michael Bertram. The young lovers had moved to Los Santos due to financial reasons after living the majority of their younger years in San Fierro. After the birth of their son Colton, Patricia quit her job and became a stay at home mum, while Michael was hired as a branch manager at a mechanical plumbing business in El Corona. Colton grew up a pretty average life, being an only child he tended to make friends very easily and quickly. He had many peers at school and was often hanging out with friends at the mall or riding bikes after school.
When he moved onto high school Colton found his passion of music - more specifically techno music. His favourite sub-genres of techno are house, minimal, EDM and more. His music influences stemmed from his mother - who was a talented singer in her youth. Colton grew up in a household which had a record player, so all sorts of music were listened to by a younger Colton.
In his final years at Gregory McCaine High School, Colton started to produce his own bootleg versions of songs, playlists, remixes and more. He purchased a second hand laptop from another student at his school and worked on music using that. As he got older and started to attend parties with his friends - he would often DJ for free or provide music for the party. In the last 6 months of his final year of high school he purchased a fake ID from the dark web, which he would use to attend nightclubs underage. There he would listen to his favourite DJs which where his music influences come from. This is also where he started to drink alcohol frequently and experience with party drugs such as MDMA.
Colton has recently been accepted to the University of San Andreas, Los Santos (USALS) where he will begin to study Media & Film Studies and Music & Dramatic Arts. Moving out of home for the first time in his life at the age of nineteen, he currently lives in the dorms on campus. Still practising his favourite art form of DJing, he hopes attending USALS can help him with his dream of becoming a big time club DJ, by creating new songs and occasionally performing sets at frat house parties.
In his spare time, other than making music Colton likes to graffiti. and ride his BMX. He often creates "pieces" and "throwies" on canvases or a wall made in his backyard specifically for graffiti. As a young teenager Colton was caught and arrested by LSPD on multiple occasions for tagging late at night in the Idlewood areas. He can also be sometimes be seen at the skatepark across the road from USALS on his lunch break or after class.
Colton still has a passion for DJing but recently has been more focused on tagging and getting his pieces up around Los Santos. The word GRUBE can be seen on walls, fences, buildings and train stations around areas such as Glen Park, Idlewood, Jefferson and El Corona.
After a brief stint in the graffiti scene, Colton decided to get back into the music industry. After dropping out of USALS he started up his own radio station called ColtFM. Which features a non-stop radio called Tech House 24/7. With his own radio station quickly rising the rankings in the Los Santos music scene - he came into contact with Daniel Evans of SoundLS and was recently signed to a contract under the Terra Group. He now performs live sets on the SoundLS radio station as well as his. Club and private event bookings are now being taken through his new management company. With access to the studio at Terra Group, Colton also moved into his own apartment which resides in the same building. Making new connections and friends within the scene has ultimately boosted Colton's work ethic through the roof.
As of April 2020, Colton had decided to follow in his friend footsteps, leaving SoundLS and the Terra Group to form a new empire over at Avidity - who is in partnership with ROZE. Along with the move came a new apartment to live in and a new contract under his new boss Valerio Kensington AKA DJ Korrupt. Colton is now the Deputy Head of Avidity alongside Andre "Maxel" Dempsey. Since the official move to Avidity, Colton has recruited Louis Guarino to the "techno team". There first official appearance together under the Avidity brand was there b2b set at Rasputin.
Following the re-launch of Avidity came along a new nightclub, labeled as the finest spot to rave in Los Santos. "The Hub" located in Rodeo is open multiple times a week. With a variety of different DJs from Avidity playing all sorts of genres.
