Maarten Hoogstraten from Bingo Players has been keeping the act going very strong after the very unfortunate passing of his musical partner and most importantly his friend Paul Bäumer. BP has since released both "Knock You Out" and "Nothing To Say" which are both amazing dance records that only have us anxiouslly awaiting what's next. Well Maarten has hit us up to share a 50 track playlist of songs that have inspired him and Paul in their music making process from the early days all the way to today ranging from classics like Daft Punk, Moby, The Chemical Brothers and more. Listen to the musical journey of a playlist below. Enjoy.
Here are some words from Maarten himself:
"These tracks have all inspired Bingo Players in the music making process. These are all songs that myself and Paul listened to throughout the years and as you listen to the playlist most will be able to hear where we took some of our inspiration, especially for early Bingo Players records like "Devotion" , "Tom's Diner" and "When I Dip". We continued to carry those influences into later records like "Cry" and I've been playing around with some of those classic sounds in my newer productions. I’ve always loved French house and old rave tracks, they provide great inspiration and remind me of my younger days, sneaking into raves underage and having wild nights with friends."
Well it looks like Drake and Beyoncé have finally linked up on a track. The new, sure to be massive, song is called "Can I" – and it just leaked online. The song features some effort-and-flawless verses from Drake and a smooth sung verse from singer Sal Houdini. Although Beyonce may only supply a small line, "Can I. Baby", her distictive voice adds a powerful and minimal edge. While this might be a leak, it sounds pretty done and full, so not sure how it could have appeared. Either way listen below and we'll keep you posted of the official release. Enjoy!

We’re quickly approaching the June 1 release of Jaime XX’s debut solo album, In Colour, and now we get to hear the official version of one of the most anticipated tracks off the album.
We previously heard a leaked version of this new track “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times),” the unlikely collaboration with rising Atlanta hip hop star Young Thug, and now we have the official version featuring Jamaican dancehall artist, Popcaan. Jaime XX strays away from the sound he’s become known for with The XX and delivers a unique summertime hit that surely evokes good vibes and will have you repeatedly clicking replay. The soft production on this track uses a warm, soulful sample that unexpectedly works well alongside Young Thug’s screeching signature vocals over the melodic beat with thumping bass and is all brought together by Popcaan's added refreshing, reggae infused hook. Keep an eye out for one of the most anticipated albums of the year. Enjoy!

To compliment the trippy nature of the track he delivers a fitting extra spacey music video that will have the viewer feeling like they may have taken something. This has has us anxiously counting down the days to hear the rest of the release. You can stream below until a download becomes available. Enjoy!

A$AP Rocky’s new album A.L.L.A. is one of the most anticipated projects of the year and as we approach its June 2nd release date the buzz is at an all time high.

He takes after his NY predecessor Biggie as this new tune is a play off Biggie’s “What’s Beef” with a cinematic instrumental intro where he samples the hook with pitched down vocals and comes in for his own lyrical verses paying homage to B.I.G. Check out the full stream below and stay tuned for the album. Enjoy!
