Holland’s Bingo Players are well and truly Dutch House music’s ‘mixed bag’. From early breakthroughs alongside Chocolte Puma to their vocal anthem ‘Cry (Just a Little)’, the daring duo have thoroughly enjoyed the realms of clubbing limbo with little sign of a typecast or predictable common asset to their name. Adding to their already affluent imprint Hysteria with impressive pace, Paul Bäumer and Maarten Hoogstraten are evidently no closer to singing their musical souls on a single aspect of genre.
But following on from the popular ‘Out Of My Mind’, Bingo Players strike back with a new original track in the form of ‘Buzzcut’. Uniquely bending the temperament of their heavy-laced drum play, ‘Buzzcut’ builds on their already assorted collection of gems with another piece of the puzzle for this consistent duo’s studio output.
Slated for release May 20th.
Once the budding protégés of homeland veterans Chocholate Puma, Paul Bäumer and Maarten Hoogstratens’ Bingo Players alias has blossomed into yet another global festival fuelling asset to the Dutch House movement. Where 2012 has seen them exploit their versatile studio skills and matching live presence, the not-so-typical national outfit follow up stubborn peak-timer ‘L’Amour’ with ‘Out Of My Mind’. Pushing a rich array of high-end synth work and gritty beats, Bingo Players touch on the nerve ends of their national competition with a track that proves energetic landmarks need not echo the norm within modern Dance music.
Back from a summer of numerous landmark festival performances, Paul Bäumer and Maarten Hoogstraten, professionally known as Bingo Players, continue their streak of acclaimed festival cuts with ‘Out Of My Mind’.
Still showing little signs of a typecast or predictable common asset to their name, the ‘mixed bag’ of Dutch House music follows up the stubborn tones of ‘L’Amour’ with what is certain to become yet another potent addition to their belt. Rife with the same screeching synths as ‘Mode’, ‘Out Of My Mind’ matches the force of their Dutch peers without the tactless conformity to the sound now associated with its universal movements.
Out November 12th.
Already attributed to a solid slew of heavyset club offerings for 2012, Rising Dutch talent Jordy Dazz follows up his third coming to Revealed ‘OMG‘ with the solid input of homeland peers Mightyfools for the shifty ‘Drum Fail’. Binding their studio wits for the ongoing festival season, this lurching Electro outing sees the trio build a sturdy wall of pitch pervading leads and scattered rhythmic shuffles for perhaps the most inventive Electro offering of the summer. Scoped by the Bingo Players’ Hysteria Records imprint, this trio of rising Dutch talents fortifies their proud club-savvy nation’s prominent spot on the radar with convincing stamina.

While his alliance to Chuckie’s Dirty Dutch imprint may have come to characterise some of his more acclaimed studio offerings, Parisian Electro House deviant Gregori Klossman follows up their collaboration ‘The NUMB3R5‘ with a feisty aurual digression for the Bingo Players Hysteria imprint.
Leading with a sterling array of dark leads and stern kicks, Klossman successfully dons a vintage rave appeal to this eclectic festival contender. While injecting a significant dose of quality Electro fuel to the rising Spinnin offshoot, ‘Minibar’ also captivates the unconditional madness that the summer clubbing season is sure to conjure for this valiant French producer.

On the heels of ‘Mode’ and ‘Rattle’, the profoundly stubborn tones of ‘L’amour’ are sure to strike apt romance amid those infatuated with the low-end realms of European Dance music. Uniquely bending the temperament of their heavy-laced drum play, the familiar acid influences currently preoccupying the industry are turned on their head in a violent instalment of hardheaded chords and profoundly powerful bass blasts. Matching the force of their Dutch peers without the tactless conformity to the sound now associated with its universal movements, ‘L’amour’ builds on their already assorted collection of bangers with another piece of the puzzle for this consistent European House force’s studio output.

Following last year’s excellent studio output on their behalf, the new year promises to be another big one for Paul Bäumer and Maarten Hoogstraten, better known as Bingo Players, as they make way for another leviathan outing for their own Hysteria Records label. Coming on the heels of such acclaimed records as Mode and Rattle, Bingo Players continue to show indications of themselves being more than capable of maintaining a top-notch standard as far as their music outlet lately goes. For their first mark on the digital market in 2012 then, ‘L’Amour’ sure would stand out from any crowd as it does not only consist of that heavy-stepping signature sound the Dutch duo have come to familiarise themselves with but a uniquely knitted down-tempo break of an acid-rock merge of sounds to further establish themselves as a household name for well-crafted and utterly unique electro-house originals.
‘L’Amour’ is released February 20th via Hysteria Records.
Seething hot off the simple but leviathan Rattle, Paul Bäumer and Maarten Hoogstraten who make up Bingo Players return to their own Hysteria Records label for the release of this anticipated piece. Much alike its recent predecessor in terms of simplicity and completeness, Mode might just be the largest single to ever have emerged from the Dutch duo. Although last year was an utmostly triumphant 12 months for the Hollander’s, 2011 has now been proven their most prolific year yet with releases like the revamp of Eve Stangello’s Davali classic, named Cry (Just A Little), Sliced with Nicky Romero and a heck of a remix on Sander van Doorn’s Koko. Made up by anthemic chords, kicking beats and a big room array of baselines, the long-awaited ‘Mode’ has finally been released.
