One half of the electro-house duo Bingo Players – Paul Baumer – passed away on Tuesday, December 17, 2013. It had been five months since he had announced his cancer diagnosis. Maarten Hoogstraten, his band-mate, broke this unfortunate news to their fans on their Facebook page. He also announced that all the upcoming shows for the rest of the year have been scrapped.
Needless to say, the dance music industry is deeply saddened by this news and is meanwhile mourning his death…
