Since the rise of ‘big room’ progressive house, artists have been searching for ways to effectively entertain, and, more importantly, electrify the growing crowds. From incorporating folk music into career-defining sets to creating saturated synth stabs for a “festival” feel, DJs have a stronger drive than ever to outdo the competition and keep fans on the edge of their seats. Appropriately enough, MAKJ and Henry Fong’s ”Encore” teases fans with an extremely pleasing and uplifting chord progression before continuing on to hit your speakers with a blistering lead, following a genre-changing phenomenon that has become popular amongst fellow American producers. “Encore” will be released on Bingo Players’ Hysteria Records on December 2nd.Posted by
Hailing from the Netherlands, Jordy Dazz is yet another producer that lives up to the dirty Dutch stereotype. A college dropout turned electronic heavyweight, the “Dope & Dirty” star has seen immense success over his ten years of production experience. Of course, his latest release release on Hysteria Records only goes to further enhance Jordy’s résumé. Unsurprisingly, “Torpedo” is a heavy tune with a pounding, aggressive lead. The track is unrelenting, keeping a powerful tone all the way through, yet the energy in Dazz’s production makes for an extremely enjoyable play-through. Behind the rash melody hides the true mastery of the tune, which lies in the delicate balance between bass-heavy and dance-friendly.

Carl Tricks has more than a few surprises up his sleeve. Since releasing his first track in 2009, the Dutch producer has been all over the house spectrum, specializing in progressive and pure house but even flirting with tech. Proving he’s no one trick pony, Tricks has now struck electro gold with “Say What Now.” The Hysteria-signed tune carries the festival weight we’ve come to expect from the Bingo Players imprint, with warped synths, a busy build and an irresistible resolution that ends the preview and leaves listeners wanting more. Fortunately fans won’t have to wait too much longer for the next drop: “Say What Now” will hit Beatport September 16th.Posted by

Henry Fong, Mike Hawkins, and Pablo Oliveros have joined forces under the Bingo Player’s Hysteria umbrella for the imprint’s next hectic electro release “JUMP!” Staying in line with Hysteria’s penchant for screaming leads and spastic breakdowns, the three bring back the big room electro style that dominated 2010, during the time when bounce music reigned king. ”JUMP!” does justice to the sound that came before it using punchy kicks, a call to action, and unrelenting electro house growls to re-animate the bouncy electro house sound for the next wave of festival-goers.

Los Angeles up-and-comer MAKJ continues to build upon his enviable momentum with a festival-ready release on the Bingo Players‘ Hysteria Records imprint. “Springen” means “to jump” in German, and the 22-year-old’s new single seems well-tailored to induce just that. Featuring a stuttered synth drop that varies in pattern and pitch to build in intensity, the track fits well within the post-”Epic” minimal drop movement that has subsumed big room house as of late. Already being supported by some of the biggest names in the business during this summer’s first-half festivals, “Springen” sports all the looks of a main stage mainstay for the latter half of the season as well.

North American breakout and handpicked Dancing Astronaut “One To Watch,” MAKJ, is the next up to bat for Bingo Players’ Hysteria imprint with debut label offering “Springen.” Off the back of “Hold Up” for Juicy Music, untamed electro with arpeggiated lead work is the weapon of choice this fast-ascending Californian talent can be found swinging towards the ranks of peak time club fuel. Adding seamlessly to the label’s arsenal of peak time bombs, MAKJ asserts his foothold on the industry with another refined release ahead of the summer clubbing season.
The Bingo Players’ Hysteria Records imprint has solidifed itself upon the peak time skyline of late, its latest offering from Dutch house mogul Alvaro and national peer Moti being no exception. Following-up on his UMF anthem “United” alongside Tiësto and Quintino and in the wake of the Bingo’s own “Buzzcut,” “NaNaNa” plays with the infectious property that its apt title would suggest. A definitive Dutch festival anthem rife with piercing leads and immediately imitable sample work, Alvaro and his rising peer up-the-ante with a heavy-footed club banger that does exactly what it says on the tin with unapologetic force.

After coming on to festival season strong, Bingo Players are returning to the production side with their first original track of 2013. Once again blurring the line between progressive and electro, the duo took no prisoners on new track “Buzzcut.” Crisscrossing between an infectious, plucky melody and inhale-inducing builds, the track gets an electro wrench thrown into the mix, resulting in an aural chaos even Melanie Iglesias couldn’t help but succumb to. Released on the pair’s own Hysteria Records, the track is available now on Beatport.
