BINGO PLAYERS @ THE HOXTON, TORONTO – MARCH 8, 2012
Another incredible night at The Hoxton — and if you weren’t present, you most definitely missed out on a crazy party!
Sad admit it, but this was the first time I’d ever seen Simon Jain behind the decks. I can confidently say that he absolutely rocked that dance floor. His interaction with the crowd was exceptional, too. Definitely the perfect musical aperitif for the Bingo Players.
Once the Dutch duo took the stage an ecstatic vibe surged through the crowd. Their musical selection was impressively diverse: everything from “Feel So Close” to the Skrillex remix of Benny Benassi’s “Cinema.” They even took “Warp” for a spin.
Their music is very capriccioso, and watching them live is an unalloyed pleasure. When they let “Rattle” blast through the speaker I felt my body — and every body around me — go into an absolute frenzy. That track is a pure blast of adrenaline rushing through body and mind. Girls crawled onto guys’ shoulders just to get close to the Bingo Players level.
Audio specialist Paul Bäumer and graphic designer Maarten Hoogstraten have proven themselves masterful producers, crafting a succession with brilliant tracks in their Enschede atelier. I’m eager to see what they deliver in the future, and when they return to Canada I am most definitely going to be there. Take my recommendation and do the same.
A special thanks goes out to Embrace Presents for making this night possible.
