Maarten Hoogstraten wasn’t like other kids his age. When he was 10, his friends were buying toys to play with, but Maarten was already spending his cash on vinyl and CDs. The producer behind the hit EDM act, Bingo Players, got hooked on electronic music when he was a kid. But, at the time, to make dance music, you needed physical equipment—synthesizers and drum machines—far out of his reach at his age. When he was a teenager, he met Paul Baümer, who would become his musical partner for the better part of the next 15 years until he suddenly passed away from cancer in 2013. Their breakout hit “Cry (Just a Little),” featured a re-recording of the hook from a 1988 Brenda Russell song, “Piano in the Dark.” With the memorable lyric looping around an ebullient melody, it became an instant crossover anthem. Though they didn’t start out as DJs, once the demand grew for them to play out live, they learned how to mix on CDJs. Soon, they became regulars on the EDM circuit, playing massive festivals, like Electric Daily Carnival, Tomorrowland, and Coachella. In 2013, they scored one of their biggest coups with updated version of their 2011 track, “Rattle,” titled, “Get Up” (Rattle)”. Maarten can continue his and Paul’s dream of making the music that they heard on the radio as kids. The scene might have gotten bigger, and the production might be made on something more sophisticated, but, says Maarten, “The vibe is still the same." And Bingo Players live on.
