After his battle with cancer, Paul Baumer has passed away. In announcement via their social media and on their website, Paul's Bingo Players half, Maarten broke the news to all of their fans:
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 last 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.
The popular dance music duo had announced Paul's diagnosis over the summer, and when we sat down with Maarten during Electric Zoo this year, he told us Paul was in good spirits and was staying positive. He said, "He's positive you know, that's one of the things I'm happy about. He's not depressed or like, you know how people can get when you get that bad kind of news."
We send our deepest condolences and prayers to Paul's family and friends. Rest in peace, Paul.
