    The big follow up to "First Light" which got a huge support with it`s amazing "Chocolate Puma Remix" comes Bart Claessen`s new sin

    gle "Catch Me", already crowned as "Dance Smash" by Dutch biggest commercial radio "Radio 538".

    Bart Claessen was born in the Netherlands on January 22nd, 1980, always loved music, and got his first piano lessons at the age of

    seven. Impressed by electronic music at the end of the nineties, he worked hard during high school to buy his first studio equipme

    nt: a synth, a sampler, an Atari computer and a small mixer. With this equipment, he changed the attic of his parental house intoa

    small studio and there it all began...#BR##BR#After graduating from high school, he started studying Music Technology at the Utre

    cht School Of Arts and impressed the dance scene one year later, in 2001, with his first release ever: Barthezz – On The Move.#BR#

    With top dj support, it started as a massive club anthem in his home country and ended up to be a worldwide singles chart hit,with

    releases on labels like Positiva (UK), Superstar (Germany), Avex (Japan) and Ultra (US). Top 10 positions in singles chartsof ove

    r ten countries were achieved, nominations for two dutch TMF Awards (best national dance act, best video) and close to 150.000 cop

    ies were sold in Germany only. His second release, Infected, had almost the same success.#BR#This, together with many worldwide dj

    gigs (Trance Energy, Innercity New Zealand, Tokyo, Barcelona, Moscow, Beiruth, Warschau, Vancouver and more), placed him inthe to

    p regions of dance music instantly.#BR##BR#After a long break it was time to try something new, and Bart decided to releasehis new

    tunes under his own name: Bart Claessen.#BR#Persona Non Grata was the first Bart Claessen release, soon followed by clubsmashers

    Playmo, When Morning Comes and the highly sought-after As Playmo Comes mashup. All tracks supported by almost every dj who plays t

    rance, techno or anything that sounds like it, and featured on numerous cd compilations across the globe.#BR#Bart also becomes a m

    uch wanted remixer, working for the biggest names and labels around. His remix work includes artists such as Chocolate Puma (Posit

    iva UK), Ferry Corsten (Positiva UK, Ultra US), Above & Beyond (Anjunabeats UK), Public Domain (Positiva UK), and Remo-Con (Avex J

    apan, Anjunabeats UK).#BR##BR#2007 was the year of First Light, a typical Bart Claessen vocal techtrance tune that, afterdoing it'

    s damage to the clubs, suddenly became a big singles chart hit in the Netherlands, reaching number 18 in the official charts. Bart

    's dj career also had an enormous boost in 2007, playing on the biggest events and clubs, like Coloursfest Glasgow, Cream Amnesia

    Ibiza, Sunrise Festival Poland, Peppermint Dubai, Ultraworld Melbourne, Godskitchen Kiev and many more.#BR##BR#2008 starts off wit
