December marks a solemn time in EDM – As many of you may have read, Paul from Bingo Players has lost his fight with cancer. We are deeply saddened that such a bright star has left us all so soon. Paul has left a positive influence on many of us with his music and will never be forgotten.

Posted by Maarten of Bingo Players:

“Dear All, I’m deeply saddened to tell you that Paul passed away last night after his battle with cancer. He fought strongly until the end. We want to thank you all for your support over the past few months. Needless to say, all upcoming shows for the rest of this year have been cancelled as we’re going through this loss with family and friends. We’ll post a longer update shortly with more information as well. Paul, we will miss you. – Maarten”

It is no easy task to find an act who could fill the shoes of Bingo Players to ring in the New Year on such short notice. We have confirmed that New World Punx will be extending their original time slot from 1.5 hours to 3.5 hours (10:30-2). We hope you join us to bring in the new year with an extended set from Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten of New World Punx along with Moguai, Madeon and NERO. #LetLoveBloom. 



Hailing from The Netherlands, Paul Baümer & Maarten Hoogstraten have fused their musical talents into the massive electronic dance duo Bingo Players. The two dutch DJs have created an international reputation through epic releases and a massive touring schedule. Bingo Players kicked off 2013 scoring a worldwide top ten hit with their single Get Up (Rattle), which was a number one single in the UK two weeks in a row. This success came after the original version of Rattle shook up European charts for nine weeks during 2012.  Bingo Players are not new to charting success. Early on, Paul & Maarten lit up the Beatport charts with a horde of huge tracks including the 2011 hit Cry (Just A Little) and most recently with Out Of My Mind. The duo doesn’t stop at producing hit records and touring the world; they also run their own label. Hysteria is Bingo Players’ label that is home to their hits Rattle, Cry (Just A Little), Out Of My Mind, L’Amour, Mode and many more. When they are not releasing their own music, Bingo Players are releasing records from their favorite artists including Carl Trick’s Mad Dash, Ralvero’s Rage and Gregori Klosman’s Minibar. 2013 is going to be a big year for Bingo Players live. Along with their recording success, Bingo Players have over 30 worldwide music festivals under their belts including Tomorrowland and Stereosonic. They’ve performed at key US festivals including Ultra, Electric Zoo and a primetime slot at Electric Daisy Carnival: Vegas. This year, Bingo Players will bring you more epic releases, an enormous live show and something to talk about.  Be warned, be prepared, Bingo Players are coming to RATTLE a venue near you!
