Hailing from The Netherlands, Paul Baümer & Maarten Hoogstraten have fused their musical talent into the massive electronic dance duo Bingo Players. The two dutch DJs have created an international reputation through epic releases and massive touring. Early on, they lit up the #1 spot on the Beatport Charts with a horde of huge tracks including "Devotion," "Touch," "Me (vs. Chocolate Puma)," "Chop," and "Disco Electrique."
The next phase? They set up a label.
In 2010, Bingo Players set up their very own record label, Hysteria. The label was home to their next massive release "Cry (Just A Little)." The track dominated European charts for 22 weeks and racked up over 10 million views on YouTube. Towards the end of 2011, Bingo Players released "Rattle," which owned up to its name, shaking up the Austria Singles Top 75 and Germany Singles Top 100 for nine weeks. "Rattle" has since become one of the biggest club tunes of 2012. This has been a massive year for Hysteria and Bingo Players. Not only did the label release Bingo Players music, but it also showcased talent such as Carl Trick's "Mad Dash," Ralvero's "Rage" and Gregori Klosman's "Minibar."
Along with their recording success, Bingo Players have toured extensively with over 30 worldwide music festivals under their belts including Tomorrowland and Stereosonic. The've also performed key US festivals including Ultra and a primetime slot at Electric Daisy Carnival: Vegas.
Be warned, be prepared, the Bingo Players are coming to RATTLE a venue near you.
On a afternoon somewhere in the beginning of 2007 two friends decided to join forces, one Dj and one producer, both sharing great passion for house music.. Bassjackers was born..!"
Bassjackers aka Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst had not foreseen what was coming when they started out with their collaboration. Marlon was already Dj-ing for a while and Ralph experimented a lot with making different kinds of dance music. Marlon was mainly playing house music at the time and then the idea came to push Ralphs productions in that direction so that Marlon could play the tracks in his sets. The first track they were both satisfied with was "Beat Cut".
"Beat Cut" got picked up by Fedde le Grand and kickstarted their career. What followed was a solid stream of tracks and remixes which were supported by all the top jocks and scored big on the international dance charts, like for example their remix for Dada Life which scored #1 on hypem.com (the international hype machine). The success in the studio was also taken to the clubs and with a packed schedule of 250 gigs a year Bassjackers were definitely established in the dance scene.
Their BIG break came in 2011, their dancefloor bomb "Mush Mush" got picked up by Tiesto and got released on Tiesto's imprint "Musical Freedom". It dominated the Beatport top 10 for over 2 months and grew to be one of the biggest club/festival tracks of 2011. It's that track that every DJ can play to destroy the dance floor, and so they did. Just to namedrop; Tiesto, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Afrojack, Sander van Doorn, Martin Solveig, Calvin Harris, Benny Benassi, Judge Jules, the list of support is endless..!!
This resulted in a massive career boost! Remixing for A-list artists like Rihanna and Moby, playing in Privilege Ibiza alongside Tiesto and touring around the globe to demolish dance floors is just the beginning… Bassjackers are taking over!
The south’s most notorious dance floor assassin Beverly sKILLZ has developed a widespread reputation for murdering dance floors on a regular basis. Refusing to be tied down to any one genre, she has been known to throw down anything that will keep the crowd moving. She always keeps the crowd guessing blending electro, dubstep, hip hop, disco, house, pop, old school, rock, or whatever she feels like. Playing music that comes from within is just one of the reasons her sets are always killer. Another reason is her extensive background in battling. A gift for turntablism sets her apart from your average club deejay. She brings her craft to the club in a shock and awe style that won’t be easily forgotten. She’s thrown down some memorable sets with artists such as Skrillex, DJ AM, Jazzy Jeff, MSTRKRFT, Steve Aoki and Dayglow’s "Escape Reality" Tour. She also earned national acclaim by placing 3rd in DMC New Orleans 2011. She can be found most Saturday nights throwing down her signature style at Ampersand.
