Late last night, Paul Baümer, one half of the duo Bingo Players, lost his battle with cancer. After announcing earlier this summer that he had been diagnosed, and would be taking leave from the touring side of things, Marteen posted this note:
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.
If there’s one thing that dance music can prove, it is that we can come together in times of sadness, and this is undoubtedly one of them. Paul will be sorely missed and we would like to offer our respects to his family, friends, and Maarten.
