Bart Maes, definitely 1 of Belgium’s dj’s who’s been around for the longest in the scene. Typical club “resident” dj, with an impressive career. Started 30 years ago with a couple of friends their own company wich delivered mobile soundsytems, light and dj’s. Soon he got his way in a first club, playing in his early years very “underground” music (new wave, alternative rock, punk, new beat,..). Later on, making his way to the big clubs all over the country, playing at first mainstream, but changed later on to do “his own thing”, for the love of house music. But still a musical chameleon, a real Gemini with two sides : funky, soulful house and deephouse and on the darker side tech house & tech.
In his rich carreer he played in about every club in Belgium with residencies in Versuz, La Rocca, Zillion, Le Bozo, Café Locale, Bel-air, Carré, Highstreet, Real, Montini, Barocco, Mondial, and many more. Besides being mainly club resident in Belgium’s finest clubs, he performed on big events like Tomorrowland, City Parade, Nature one, Extrema Outdoor Holland, Festimix, Open-air Romedenne, and many more… also loads of gigs in Holland, Germany, Spain, Ibiza (Space), Gran Canaria ( Cream).
The list of international dj’s he shared the decks with is enormous : Sandy Rivera, Roger Sanchez, Fedde Le Grand, Bob Sinclar, Green Velvet, Dada Life, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, 100% Isis, Erick E, Marcello, Dj jean, Tiesto, Benny Rodriguez, Laidback Luke, Armand Van Helden, Sharam Jey,
Funkagenda, Cedric Gervais, Jaydee, Dr Kucho, Eddie Thoneick, Felix Da Housecat, Michel De Hey,
Jesse Voorn, Nic fanciulli, Sebastien Leger, Davide Squillace, Dave Seaman, Marco V, etc…
During his dj-career he worked as sales in several dj-shops and was Manager of the Belgian division of Rhythm Import Records from Amsterdam, home of legendary labels as Work, Fresh Fruit, Outland Records…
At the age of 45, celebrating 30 years of dj-career, Bart is still rockin’ strong with several residencies and bookings in clubs and events all over Belgium and playing ,as a musical twin, deep house & vocal house or tech house.
