Bingo Players, consisting of Paul Bäumer and Maarten Hoogstraten, have inflicted the dance scene ever since they broke through with the roof-raising single “Touch Me” produced in collaboration with Chocolate Puma and released on the legendary label Strictly Rhythm/Defected. The duo attracted the attention of Martin Solveig, Marco V, Shapeshifters and David Guetta among others, and if that wasn’t enough, it hit Beatport’s chart at #1! “Touch Me” also appeared on various compilations like Defected in the House and Sensation White. Bingo Players appeared to have been made for each other in 2008, experiencing some massive aftermath success with their UHM & Tony Flexx Our House remix. The Dutch house mogul Erick E’s Wanna Go Again was treated with the inner Bingo and hit the Dance Tunes top position and was inserted in Noir, Sander van Doorn and Patric La Funk’s CD machines. Bingo Players rocked on with another smash hit “Get Up” released on Bart B More’s label Secure Recordings; it hit the shelves following a huge buzz and support from Laidback Luke, A-Trak, Junior Sanchez and Crookers and made it onto the 2008 I LOVE TECHNO compilation, mixed by Boys Noize. The following release Chop was a huge club hit reaching #2 on the Beatport chart and stayed in the top 10 for several weeks. Proving they had the skills, Bingo Players embarked on generating several remixes like Joachim Garraud’s Are You Ready, Oliver Twizt’s You’re Not Alone, Ron Caroll’s Bump To DJs and Kristine W’s Feel What You Want. Like their own sensational hits, the duo showcased their skills as re-mixers and created tracks that blossomed in the dance scene while destroying the dance floors. In 2010 Bingo Players launched their own label Hysteria creating the platform for artists such as Carl Tricks, Nicky Romero, Starkillers and Dimitry Ko, not to mention releasing their 2011 summer hit Cry (Just A Little) that took the world by storm. Alongside the summer hit, they launched the label with their other productions—Lame Brained, Get on the Move and Obviously—achieving an excellent response from fellow artists. The Bingo duo seemed unstoppable as they embarked on further work in 2011, already having released several tracks including the successful Sliced in collaboration with Nicky Romero on Hysteria. Their remix of Pitbull’s Give Me Everything (Feat, Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer) became the most downloaded version in several territories and a major club hit. Bingo Players were ranked number 66 in DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs list for 2012. Along with their recording success, Bingo Players have toured extensively with more than 30 worldwide music festivals under their belts including Tomorrowland and Stereosonic. They've also performed key US festivals including Ultra and a primetime slot at Electric Daisy Carnival: Vegas.
