In 2013, they scored one of their biggest coups. An updated version of their 2011 track, Rattle, titled Get Up (Rattle), with LA-based act Far East Movement rapping over a bouncy, catchy beat, became an instant hit. When they first played the tune back in 2011, they didn’t know if audiences liked it, but then, the single started to pick up steam around the world and slowly continued to grow. It eventually charted in the Top Ten around the world including; Germany, Austria, France, and Australia (where it ended up going double Platinum), Gold in Canada, reaching the coveted #1 spot in the UK charts, and selling over 200,000 records in the U.S., reaching #5 on the dance charts. The success of the single, and the quirky, humorous video featuring ducks squaring off against hoodlums (which now has over 40 million views) helped propel Bingo Players high into the DJ Mag Top 100 list last year.

You’ll rarely find a mind more in sync with the music within, than that of Dutch DJ, producer and label owner Willem Rebergen, better known as Headhunterz. His HARD with STYLE brand continues to build, as his sounds grow stronger and more colorful than ever. Resolved to follow his heart, he does so with beating energy, endless willpower and passion, resulting in a swift rise to the top in no less than 8 years. Heady’s character resounds in each of his originals, remixes and sets, celebrated by an engaged, worldwide following. His roots are found in Hardstyle, a scene he takes a leading role in. As one of the first of a new generation of hard dance artists, Headhunterz looks back on a rollercoaster ride of highlights. Main stage performances at globally renowned festivals such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Qlimax, Defqon. 1, Coachella and Decibel Outdoor. His very own, sold out shows at Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome, the X-Qlusive event in Heineken Music Hall and the official HARD with STYLE night in the Melkweg venue. These milestones make his #23 position in DJ Mag’s Top 100 a mere nicety of the continuous support of his fans

As Scotland’s original superclub, the Arches is the stuff of clubbing legend. There really is no other venue like it in the world.
Repeatedly voted one of the top 100 clubs in the world in DJ magazine, the industrial brick arches are home to a continuous roster of the world’s most in demand DJs and producers from across the dance spectrum, whether it be minimal techno, big bassline electro, hardstyle, deep house, UK bass, dubstep or trance.
With a Funktion 1 soundsystem and three fully stocked bars spread over six subterranean arches, the space is transformed each weekend depending on the faces behind the decks. From huge, sell out nights with platinum selling Ibiza trendsetters such as Alesso and Laidback Luke or legendary acts such as Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, to the hottest, most-hyped names on the dance scene’s lips – from Jamie Jones and Nina Kraviz to Jackmaster and Omar S, ours is one of the most diverse club programmes in the city.
As well as the Arches’ own club nights, which have recently brought the likes of Hot Creations label, Madeon and Chase & Status to the venue, for many fans the Arches is synonymous with either of its two biggest nights, Pressure and Colours.
