With their latest collaborative single “Touch & Go,” Perfect Havoc, based in Hoxton, welcomes platinum-certified producer Bingo Players and house duo Oomloud.
Bingo Players’ slew of hits over the last decade, including the UK #1 charting single ‘Rattle,’ top 40 global anthem ‘Cry (Just A Little),’ and more recently, the heavily supported Oomloud collab ‘Brighter Days,’ show that they only release music of the highest quality. Carla Monroe of MK ‘2AM’ and ‘17′ wrote ‘Touch & Go,’ which is guaranteed to make any dancefloor jump with its 90s inspired house production and a vocal that cuts through any noise.
About the artist Bingo Players
Bingo players don’t need much of an introduction. Maarten Hoogstraten has been dominating dancefloors and singles charts around the world for over a decade, with a style of dance music that has seen throngs of fans flock to his sets at major festivals such as Coachella, Tomorrowland, EDC Vegas, and others. Bingo Players had huge success with their DJ/production partner and lifelong friend Paul Bäumer’s songs “Cry (Just A Little),” “Rattle,” and later, after Paul’s death, “Knock You Out.” With over 20 million streams, it reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart in the United States, propelling Bingo Players even further into the mainstream.
Bingo Players today sound as vibrant as ever. On Musical Freedom in 2020, his rework of “Devotion” became a hit for the second time, 11 years after its initial release on Spinnin’ Records. And with the recent success of Disco Fries’ ‘Forever Love,’ which reached #4 on the US Billboard Dance Chart, as well as the Bingo Players and Oomloud collaboration ‘Brighter Days,’ he couldn’t be in better shape.
Bingo Players and Oomloud
Bingo Players’ relationship with Oomloud began in college when Maarten met Rutger Bäumer, one half of Oomloud, who introduced Maarten to Paul Bäumer, later known as the duo Bingo Players. Paul and Maarten began collaborating on music when they realized they shared a passion for synthesizers and early music production software. Rutger Bäumer went on to become the label manager for Hysteria Records, and through a series of label demo submissions, he met his production partner Rutger Van Gelder. The two Rutgers teamed up as producers and songwriters to form Oomloud, who debuted with Bingo Players on the track ‘Tic Toc,’ where their contagious, bouncy club sound was first showcased.
After receiving support from some of the world’s most well-known DJs, including Tiesto, Martin Garrix, AVICII, and David Guetta, Oomloud’s career took off on labels like Musical Freedom, Heldeep, and Spinnin’, where their singles “Platinum” and “XTC” amassed over 2 million global streams.
The label Perfect Havoc
Perfect Havoc’s new single, “Touch & Go,” is another solid release. Tobtok, a Swedish producer with two platinum albums under his belt, Mahalo, Karen Harding, Kokiri, Simon Field, and Parx are among the artists on its roster. Five UK Top 10s and platinum-certified records, including Joel Corry & MNEK’s “Head & Heart” (No.1), Joel Corry x RAYE x David Guetta’s “Bed” (No.6), and a top 20 hit with PS1 ft Alex Hosking’s “Fake Friends,” attest to the label and management agency’s rapid rise (No.19). Perfect Havoc has licensed cool house cuts to Toolroom Records and Kitsune, as well as major labels such as Atlantic and Columbia, thanks to his keen ear for both underground and mainstream hits. This forward-thinking company has a bright future ahead of it.
