Bingo Players is a Dutch dance and electro house musical project fronted by DJ and record producer Maarten Hoogstraten. Bingo Players was originally a duo, which included Paul Bäumer, who died from cancer in 2013. After the death of Bäumer, Hoogstraten announced that Bäumer had said to continue with the Bingo Players. They are best known for their hit songs "Cry (Just a Little)" and "Rattle". Cry (Just a Little) was a Top-40 hit in the Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom, and other parts of Europe and Australia, in addition to an international club hit. Bingo Players were ranked number 52 in DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs list for 2013.


The Bingo Players was founded by Dutch DJs, Maarten Hoogstraten and Paul Bäumer, in 2006.

Stylistically, The Bingo Players utilized a choppy form of tech house until 2011, where they would shift into the modern-day EDM scene seen presently. They went on to record their own remixes of several songs over the years. In addition to DJing and producing, Bingo Players own and operate Hysteria Records.[2] The label releases many of The Bingo Players' singles in addition to tracks from up-and-coming electro house producers, including Bassjackers, MAKJ, Sandro Silva, Ralvero and Gregori Klosman.

In May 2011, the Bingo Players released "Cry (Just a Little)", which borrows lyrics from Brenda Russell's "Piano In The Dark". In the same year, the Bingo Players had a hit with their original record "Rattle".[3] The song charted in the Top 40 in the Netherlands, France, Sweden and Denmark.

In 2013 a revamped version of Rattle titled "Get Up (Rattle)"[4] was released and became a number one single in the United Kingdom in addition to being a Top 10 hit in Germany, Austria, France, Australia and other parts of Europe. The single has been certified gold in Canada, silver in the UK, and four times platinum in Australia.

On July 19, 2013, Bäumer announced on the duo's Facebook fan page, that he was diagnosed with cancer and that Hoogstraten would be representing the duo on the road for the remaining tour. Bäumer stated he would still be working in the studio as well as taking lead in running Hysteria Records, meanwhile seeking medical treatment.

On December 17, 2013, Bäumer died after an ongoing cancer battle for over a year. Hoogstraten announced the news on Facebook on December, 18.[5] He had cancelled all upcoming shows to take time off to mourn the loss with his family and friends as well as attending the funeral.

In Early 2014, Bingo Players announced [6] that Hoogstraten would be continuing on as a solo act, as per Bäumer's wishes. Around the same time, the Bingo Players released "Knock You Out", which became the group's first number one song on the US dance chart.[7] Featuring the lyrics "My fight is won, Who needs a gun, Boom-boom, Knock you out" sung by Kim Viera, who is not credited, it is considered to be a tribute to Bäumer and his struggle with cancer.

The Bingo Players appeared at #96 on the DJmag Top 100 DJ's for 2014.[8]
