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."
Bass enthusiast Skrillex took the stage at the ocean-filled Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama last night and didn't hold back one bit for 90 minutes straight, dropping what appears to be one of his biggest sets to date.

Dan Snaitch, aka Caribou, the Canadian indie / folk / electronic artist who turns out music for over 15 artist has delivered something no one has ever attempted to do. A 1,000 song playlist. And that is not an exaggeration; he has compiled 1000 songs from past and present, with no rules or guidlines, other than being a good song. Ranging from rap to classic rock to all varieties of indie and alternative rock, it will be impossible to be bored listening to this .
Here is his words about the playlist:
The last few years of my life have been incredible, thanks in large part to all of you – so I've been thinking of how to say thank you.
As you can imagine, music has been a central love of my life since I was a teenager and over the years I've been introduced to a lot that has stayed with me. I've collected the majority of that music here – and I thought sharing it with you seemed like one way I could say thanks.
I'm sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. Of course a lot of this music has come to me through my friends – thank you to Koushik, Kieran, Jeremy, Gary, Brandon, Jason, Sam, Ketan, Ryan, Toby and many others…
Also, please share music with me that you think I would like but is not included here, in the hope this becomes a dialogue rather than a monologue.
I suggest you listen to this on shuffle as I made no attempt to sequence these tracks – I just entered them as I browsed along the shelves in my record collection. If you see dead links or duplicate songs please tweet me @caribouband.
I hope you find something to enjoy here. Thanks,
The YouTube embed below only will load 200 songs (come on Youtube), so click the link to listen to the entire 1000 tracks. He also insists that you shuffle them as he he didn't place the 1000 tracks in any specific order.
Pretty Lights is one of the most unique and exciting electronic artists around, pushing the boundaries of how the music industry works, known for freely distributing every single album / song he has every released. Well today he continues his out of the box habits by releasing not 1, but 10 songs completely for free, through someone who matters most to him, one of his fans.
While attending this year's annual Jam Cruise, which just commenced it's 13th year (for those unaware it's a long running cruise festival featuring some of the best jam acts around, and is actually the cruise that inspired Hard's Holy Ship and Mad Decent's Boat Party), Pretty Lights was catching up with some of his fans by the zen pool, one in paritcular a fan by the name of Cassie Blochinger. Together they came up with the idea that "(the fans) should be the ones sharing his music. We're the ones that help expand the knowledge of Pretty Lights and show the world just how we do."
Pretty Lights then uploaded 10 tracks, mostly new, some old, directly from his laptop to her harddrive. She has since uploaded the songs for everyone to hear, exactly what Derek (Pretty Lights) wanted.
Some of the tracks sound complete while others are simply breaks, but they all carry out that signature soulful Pretty Lights sound.
You can download all the tracks through the mediafire playlist here. We hope you are thankful for this unexepcted present, we sure are! Enjoy!
