This week, V2 Presents is bringing some epic beats to Salt Lake City! Their weekly edition of Therapy Thursdays is once again bringing a world-class artist to the lovely SKY nightclub in Salt Lake City. One of the most celebrated artists in house music will be gracing the stage, Bingo Players. Well-known for creating beats that get the dance floors moving, Maarten is making a stop at SkySLC in celebration of ten years of quality music. You’ve probably caught a set at a festival like EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival or Electric Zoo, and you must have at least heard the massive releases of “Cry (Just A Little)”, “Mode”, and the much beloved “Rattle” too. 2016 brought about the release of “Be With You”, which was yet another quality tune, and now you’ll be able to catch Bingo Players at Therapy Thursdays.
$2 from every ticket purchased will be donated to Fuck Cancer, in memory of Paul Baümer!

About Bingo Players:
Maarten Hoogstraten wasn’t like other kids his age. When he was 10, his friends were buying toys to play with, but Maarten was already spending his cash on vinyl and CDs.When he was a teenager, two events would change his life. An early music software program called ProTracker was released, and he would meet Paul Baümer, who would become his musical partner for the better part of the next 15 years.
Over the next decade they began recording; and in 2006 they began recording under the moniker, Bingo Players. Their tracks started to resonate with the EDM crowds in America and abroad. Their songs— featuring buzzing, bouncing synthesizers, crunchy, guitar-like riffs reminiscent of the Chemical Brothers, and powerful, driving beats— are shaped by a memorable lyrical hook or a melody. Their breakout hit “Cry (Just a Little),” featured a re-recording of the hook from a 1988 Brenda Russell song, “Piano in the Dark.” With the memorable lyric looping around an ebullient melody, it became an instant crossover anthem.
But in June 2013, at the height of their success, Paul suddenly fell ill. He was diagnosed with cancer. Everyone was shocked. Despite the prognosis, Paul remained optimistic. In October, Paul took a turn for the worse and he passed away in December 2013. There was an outpouring of support from the EDM community with peers like Hardwell, Steve Aoki, Kaskade, Skrillex and Armin Van Buuren paying tribute on social media, at shows and in the press. Maarten was stunned and didn’t know what to do. But Paul’s last wishes were for his best friend and his musical partner to keep making music.
