Belgium’s Bart Ricardo is no stranger to Chicago House music, having spun next to some of its biggest hometown heroes such as Derrick Carter, Gene Farris, Green Velvet, Roy Davis Jr. as well as coming here annually to play.

Since 2009 he has released a steady stream of music for labels like Farris Wheel Recordings, Gourmand Music, Whitebeard and Melodymathics. He has remixed for Lil Mark, Le Babar, Joss Moog and Andrew Emil, and songs from his widely praised “NYC EP” were played and charted by Derrick Carter, Mark Farina and Roy Davis Jr.

If you like cutting edge music with touches of Chicago House, Disco, Lounge and Future Jazz, Bart may be the man for you. Bart is currently in the US and playing at Smartbar in Chicago tonight for T. Mixwell’s Soapbox Social. This exclusive mix for 5 Magazine was from a live set recorded three weeks ago at Brett Johnson’s party in Austin.
