Richard Durand, Bingo Players – Clubbin (SlamFM)-CABLE-06-05-2010

Without doubt the hottest new trance DJ / producer to emerge from Holland this past year is Richard Durand. Recommended by the mighty Tiësto as his 'Tip For The Top in 2007' in DJ Magazine a year ago, Richard has responded with a string of stunning productions and remixes in recent months, including official reworks of Tiësto's 'Lethal Industry', 'Flight 643' and 'Break My Fall', Armin van Buuren's 'In And Out Of Love' plus a DJ diary that has exploded due to demand from high profile shows and festival appearances, culminating in Richard Durand rising to #66 in the DJ Magazine Top 100 poll in 2008.The Richard Durand sound is trance, techno and tough electro in a unique package that's both dynamic and devastating. Having made his mark as a solo producer with the big tech trance bombs 'Make Me Scream' and 'Slipping Away' on the Terminal 4 label, the 2007 follow-ups 'Sweap And Repeat' and 'Submerge' and remixes of Tiesto vs BT 'Break My Fall' and Fragma 'Toca's Miracle' found playlist support from the biggest DJ names on the planet including as Paul van Dyk, Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Judge Jules and Eddie Halliwell to name but a few.

Bingo Players (Paul Bäumer & Maarten Hoogstraten) have been left gasping for air after a seriously hectic year with bookings in the Netherlands and abroad. Outgrowing local bingo halls to play with the big ballers of the game has been the result of their hard work and devotion. The Bingo Players appear to have been made for each other, the proof of which came in November 2009, when the DJ/producer duo topped the Beatport overall chart for a second time with their remake of the dance floor classic, “Devotion”, which stayed on no. 1 for two weeks and over a month in the top 10!Back in 2008 the Bingo Players were still experiencing the extensive aftermath of their UHM & Tony Flexx – “Our House” remix. The cooperation with Chocolate Puma on the legendary label Strictly Rhythm/Defected, “Touch Me” was released and gained support all over. If that wasn’t enough, it also hit Beatport’s chart number one position! “Touch Me” then appeared on various compilations, like Defected In The House and Sensation White.
