Swedish House Mafia continue to make their return to the electronic sector one painstaking step at a time, the most recent of which directed the three-part supergroup to Columbia Recordsto pen a record deal with the label. Dancing Astronaut invites Swedish House Mafia fans to momentarily avert their eyes from the horizon where new SHM music has long loomed, to instead glance nine years backwards and relive the trio’s 2010 Creamfields Essential Mix as the ink of the Columbia agreement dries.
The Essential Mix takes streamers back to Aug. 29, 2010, a time in which Axwell, Ingrosso, and Angello were jointly pioneering their iconicity as Swedish House Mafia. The 2010 set, live from Daresbury, England pairs a number of classic Swedish House Mafia productions that have now ascended to catalog-staple status with remixes and edits of offerings from other electronic entities like Bingo Players, Calvin Harris, and Pendulum. Highlights include an instrumental rendition of “Miami 2 Ibiza,” and Axwell’s bootleg of “Tell Me Why vs. Bittersweet Symphony.”
Swedish House Mafia currently shoulder headlining duties for Creamfields’ 2019 edition, slated for Aug. 22-25.
After the release of his magnetic Spinnin’ Records house track earlier this month, “Love Me Right,” Maarten Hoogstraten of Bingo Players has unveiled the equally playful accompanying music video. In the poolside affair, an immaculate succession of women tout vintage swimsuits, underwater cassette players, and fresh-cut flowers, as the track’s swirling grooves envelop them. The video’s liberating, sunshine-laden atmosphere is both sonically and visually reminiscent of the act’s 2011 breakout dance release, “Cry (Just A Little),” which featured the late Paul Bäumer, the other member of the original Bingo Players duo.
Bingo Players, composed of the Dutch producer Maarten Hoogstratenhas, been delivering on the classic house tunes for years now from his vibrant percussion all the way down to the effortlessly catchy vocals.
His latest, “Love Me Right,” is yet another feel-good anthem that is a perfect complement for a summer day spent cruising around town with friends or relaxing poolside with a drink. This track sparkles with a punchy kick, energetic claps and retro synths, delivering on the foolproof Bingo Players sound that fans have come to expect.
Bingo Players decided to put a new spin on his track “Everybody” with LA-based DJ Goshfather. The original collaboration was released off his imprint Hysteria prior to the “Everybody” US tour kick-off.
For this remix, Bingo Players clearly decided to replace the funky, 80s dance-influenced feel of the original with a more futuristic house sound. The old-school vibes are still there, however, listeners get a voxed-out, electronic vocal and off-beat lead synths on the drop.
Bingo Players will be touring the US through June 2018. See a full list of dates and ticket info here.
Back in April 2017, Goshfather released a disco-injected track called “Everybody.” Now, nearly a year later, the track has been re-released as a collaborative effort with legendary producer Bingo Players.
The track takes off on a high note, ushering in a funky, carefree vibe right from the get-go. With cheery vocals that’ll take any party up a notch, the two producers build up to a disco-infused chorus. “Everybody” brings back the 1970s while still maintaining the atmosphere of modern house music.
“We made ‘Everybody’ with big plans in mind: we want to bring joy and dancing back to dance music,” Goshfather says. “No frills, no agendas, just pure energy as if it was your fist time at your first dance music show. Bingo Players and I want you all to enjoy this brand new track!”
Boehm has put his own spin on Bingo Players‘ hit single, “Devotion.” In Boehm’s rendition, the original track, which features infectious saxophone riffs over thick beats, is brought to new heights. The Romanian producer amps up the energy in “Devotion” with grungy waves of bass, and a new edgy rhythm. Deeper, ominous sounds prevail throughout the piece, and mellow interludes consisting of vocal samples over a minimalist rhythmic pattern create a nice contrast to rich, prominent undertones.
Boehm is known for his eclectic sound which consists of an array of dance styles. From his renowned progressive house collaboration with Steve Aoki, “Back 2 U,” to his deep house hit with Aaliyah, “If Your Girl Only Knew,” Boehm has experimented with a variety styles. With his take on Bingo Players’ “Devotion,” Boehm once again flaunts his diversity in production technique.
Bingo Players‘ new EP addresses the ever looming question, “what are going to be the next hot sounds?” Bingo Players provide their perspective with What’s Next, an EP that serves as a platform for underrated new talent that caught their attention, such as Oomloud and Robin Aristo. The two-track EP is a familiar dose of what BP fans were thirsty for, containing familiar hard-hitting house production with epic drops created through the frame of young rising talent.
In the early 2010’s, Bingo Players was absolutely a part of the global explosion of dance music, playing the worlds most popular music festivals. All these later, the act still serves as a tastemaker in the scene.
