Get Up (Rattle)

Album: Dirty Bass (2013)
Charted: 1
  • Bingo Players are a Dutch Dance and Electro House DJ and production duo, made up of Paul Bäumer and Maarten Hoogstraten. Many first became aware of them when their 2011 song "Cry (Just a Little)," was reworked and released as an international hit single by Flo Rida with the title of "I Cry."
  • This song features vocals from Asian-American Hip-Hop quartet Far East Movement, who are best known for their global smash, "Like a G6."
  • This is a vocal mix of Bingo Players' house instrumental "Rattle."
  • The song's popularity was enhanced by a hilarious video featuring urban vigilante ducks setting upon a gang of youths.
  • The song entered at #1 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming both acts' first British chart-topper.
  • Hoogstraten recalled the story of the song during a Reddit AMA: "Rattle started out with the lead melody. We found that synth sound and the melody just came out of nothing. That's the fun part of producing!"
  • Paul Bäumer died after an ongoing cancer battle on December 17, 2013.
