Even as Maarten travels the world solo, Bingo Players continue to spread their name across the world. They have proved to us their resilience, and that nothing will stop them from doing what they love, and doing it well. We spoke to Maarten just before his set at Electric Zoo to see how he's holding up so far, in addition to asking about their production process and their biggest inspiration. A few days ago they uploaded their set from Ezoo and dedicated it to their fans and "to those who passed too early." Check it out below.
I think that what a lot of your fans love most about you is that we never know what to expect. People unfamiliar with your music would have no idea that “Cry (Just A Little)” and “Out Of My Mind” were produced by the same artist. What do you have to say about your diverse style?
As Fashion Week continues in New York, we asked a few electronic dance music artists questions about who their favorite designers are, or in what ways they would describe their fashion sense. We learned a few things in the process, mostly that these DJ's don't really have fashion on their radar. However, and in honor of the "holiday," we figured we'd share with you what your favorite artists had to say...
We read in a past interview you really like shopping. Have you kept up with NY Fashion Week at all in the past?
Jochen Miller: Sorry, I haven't! I do love shopping and fashion, but I don't follow up on each trend, so I hardly ever watch fashion-shows. It's a shame I'm not still in town for Fashion Week though, as I can imagine the city must be sizzling then, I'm sure I would have loved the atmosphere!
Artists to watch, Lush & Simon, have recently come out with a new bootleg of Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash’s (feat. John Martin) “Reload,” and have given us the track for all of our readers’ listening needs. While similar to its original version, Lush & Simon’s bootleg contains long buildups and progressive synths. Within no time, it has been supported by the likes of Tiesto, Bingo Players, Gareth Emery, Carnage, and others.
The duo are inspired by music from The Doors, The Beatles, Elvis Presley and many others. Inside EDM, their main inspirations right now are Hardwell, Tiesto, Sick Individuals, DubVision, Dyro, and
legends like Daft Punk and Justice.
It’s March in Miami, and that can only mean one thing—the pool parties are hot, the people are even hotter, and the music is on fire. Welcome to the land of tropical paradise, where lavish piscinas play host to the biggest DJs on the planet as Miami Music Week and Miami pool party season collide for a symphonious Molotov cocktail you can’t help but gulp down.
So start perfecting your belly flop form, lather on the tanning oil, and bust out last year’s itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka-dot bikini because it’s time to bask in South Florida’s sunshine to the tunes of your favorite turntablists.
Put down your textbooks and pick up your glowsticks because Tiesto’s Club Life College Invasion Tour just earned some extra credit! The Dutch producer announced today that his openers will be electro-superstars Dada Life and Bingo Players.
Could Tiesto have picked better warm up acts? Swedish electro-house duo Dada Life’s champagne-popping, blowup banana tossing antics never fail to get the audience’s blood pumping. And we can't forget the Bingo Players, the Dutch dance-duo whose 2011 skyrocket to stardom stemmed from their massive hits “Cry Just A Little” and “Rattle.”
Benny Benassi, Italian DJ/producer of legend, penned what must be the most recognizable dance track of the past ten years. Don't believe me? Here:
See? Anyway, y'all probably knew that already. Since then, Benassi has been hard at work, delivering club anthems for more than a decade. Winning a Grammy for his remix of Public Enemy's "Bring The Noise," Benassi has enjoyed critical success as well as the utter and unflinching devotion of his fans. He is constantly touring the world, playing the biggest festivals and most popular clubs in cities from NY to Milan, Tokyo to Moscow.
This summer's biggest festival has finally announced dates, locations, lineup AND put tickets up for sale. Identity Festival is the self proclaimed largest traveling festival in the world, playing 15 cities in about a month this summer. While the lineup is slightly different for each city, there are a few mainstays including Eric Prydz, Wolfgang Gartner, Excision, Madeon, Porter Robinson, Nero (DJ set), Paul Van Dyk, Bingo Players, Showtek, Noisa, Arty, Doctor P and more! There's pretty much no excuse to miss this one, I mean, it'll be everywhere!
