After releasing the infectious ‘Cry (Just A Little)’ which received over 35 million online streams, Bingo Players took it to the next level with the release of ‘Rattle’. A massive dance anthem that gained over 400 million online streams along with receiving playtime on the world’s biggest stages, ‘Rattle’ quickly became Bingo Players‘ most successful single before the passing of member Paul Bäumer. This release celebrated its birthday on the 18th of October.
Netherlands-based DJ/production duo Maarten Hoogstraten (aka Break Mechanic, Marchand) and Paul Christian (real last name Bäumer) started releasing commercial house singles and remixes as Bingo Players in 2006, when they debuted on the German Techtone label with the ‘Sonic Stomp’ EP. Over time, their pared-down sound became increasingly layered, more rush-inducing, and reliant upon clever vocal samples. Some of their more notable releases across 2010 and 2011 included ‘Tom’s Diner’ (where they sampled the hit DNA version of the Suzanne Vega song), ‘When I Dip’ (Freak Nasty‘s ‘Da’ Dip’), and ‘Cry (Just a Little)’ (Brenda Russell‘s ‘Piano in the Dark’).
