A Sad Day In The EDM Scene

We’re sad to report that Paul Bäumer one of the members of the Dutch production Duo Bingo Players passed away today 12/18/13 after loosing his hard fought battle with cancer. Maarten Hoogstraten has been touring on his own as  Paul received treatment.

According to the groups official facebook page, all upcoming shows till the end of the year have been cancelled as friends and family grieve this tragic loss. WhySoChi would like to send our deepest sympathies to Maarten, Paul’s friends and family.
