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."
