AboutBingo Players (Paul Bäumer & Maarten Hoogstraten) have been left gasping for air after a seriously hectic year with bookings in the Netherlands and abroad. Outgrowing local bingo halls to play with the big ballers of the game has been the result of their hard work and devotion. The Bingo Players appear to have been made for each other, the proof of which came in November 2009, when the DJ/producer duo topped the Beatport overall chart for a second time with their remake of the dance floor classic, "Devotion", which stayed on no. 1 for two weeks and over a month in the top 10!

Back in 2008 the Bingo Players were still experiencing the extensive aftermath of their UHM & Tony Flexx – "Our House" remix. The cooperation with Chocolate Puma on the legendary label Strictly Rhythm/Defected, "Touch Me" was released and gained support all over. If that wasn't enough, it also hit Beatport's chart number one position! "Touch Me" then appeared on various compilations, like Defected In The House and Sensation White.

After that, Dutch house mogul, ErickE's "Wanna Go Again", was treated with the inner Bingo and this remix hit the Dance Tunes top position and was inserted in the CD machines of Noir, Sander van Doorn and Patric La Funk amongst others. In September 2008 "Get Up" hit the shelves following a huge buzz and support from Laidback Luke, A Trak, Crookers and made it onto the 2008 I LOVE TECHNO! compilation, mixed by Boys Noize.

Their next release "Chop" was a massive club hit, reaching no. 2 on the Beatport charts and remained in the top 10 for weeks. After that, their remixes for Joachim Garraud (Are You Ready), Sir James (Special), Ron Caroll (Bump To Dis) and Kristine W (Feel What You Want) were also big tunes and huge Beatport favourites.

2009 saw a new collaboration with Chocolate Puma on a track called "Disco Electrique", which shot to no. 2 in the Beatport Chart. Internationally revered as 'hot from Holland' the Bingo's year was full of incredible bookings in clubs worldwide along with several appearances at big international festivals such as Creamfields in the UK.

It's no surprise then that nowadays every DJ supports the Bingo sound. Think of names like David Guetta, Axwell, Fedde Le Grand, Martin Solveig, Laidback Luke, Roger Sanchez, Sander Van Doorn, Sebastian Ingrosso and many more. The Bingo Players are the living proof things can take a sudden turn for the better! So what's next you might wonder? Enough, their next release "No. 1 Disco" will be out soon as well as new remixes for Fedde Le Grand, Mastiksoul and Martin Solveig. With focus on dominating the world of bingo in 2010, hold on to your bingo cards; it's game time!

Bingo Players' Maarten Hoogstraten announced today on the group's Facebook page that his DJ partner, Paul Bäumer, lost his battle to cancer yesterday, December 17. The message from Hoogstraten thanks fans for their support and confirms the cancellation of gigs and events through the end of 2013.

Best known for their track "Cry (Just A Little)," which was sampled on Flo Rida's Top 10 hit, "I Cry," the duo rose out of the Dutch house scene with several underground tracks before cracking the global market with singles like "Cry" and "Rattle."

Flo Rida's "I Cry" hit No. 6 on the Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Rap Songs charts in 2012, pushing Bingo Players to greater global prominence as crossover beatmakers with David Guetta-potential.

In 2013, Bingo Players played Ultra Music Festival and Coachella, and became one of the inaugural residents at Las Vegas megaclub Hakkasan. Bäumer announced his diagnosis in July, acknowledging his absence from live appearances but declining to go into depth about his illness.

In spite of this, the duo launched a large-scale headlining tour this fall, replete with an elaborate set designed by the Vita Motus Design Studio (Amon Tobin's ISAM, Infected Mushroom's Army of Mushrooms). Bäumer was not on the tour, though as recently as September he was back in the studio. There were indications he would be returning to live performances.

Perhaps the greatest tribute to Bäumer's legacy will be from their peers. In July as his cancer had just been announced, fellow Dutchman Chuckie asked the Tomorrowland crowd to have a seat in honor of Bäumer.

As his partner, Hoogstraten said in his statement to fans, "Paul, we will miss you."
