EDM DJ Paul Baumer, 1 part of the Dutch DJ-Duo ‘Bingo Players’ has lost his 6 month fight against cancer (#fuckcancer).

A statement was made via their Facebook page by fellow band mate Maarten Hoogstraten which stated:

“I’m deeply saddened to tell you that Paul passed away last night after his battle with cancer. He fought strongly until the end.

We want to thank you all for your support over the past few months.

Needless to say, all upcoming shows for the rest of this year have been cancelled as we’re going through this loss with family and friends. We’ll post a longer update shortly with more information as well.

Paul, we will miss you.
– Maarten”

In July, Paul announced that he had been diagnosed with cancer and that he would take a more behind the scenes part, with Hoogstraten “representing them on the road”.

Social media has seen many friends djs and fans chiming in with their condolences.

Bingo Players, are not just Dutch based, but also USA based with a Miami HQ and are probably best known for their awesome tune Rattle which was released in 2011 and made the top 40 in Holland, France and Scandinavia. A remixed version became number 1 in the UK and reached the top ten in several other European countries and Australia.
