Quintino is on the rise. Known as a highly talented Dutch DJ and producer, he is quickly becoming one of the leading forces in the global music scene today. After taking on the role as DJ it wouldn’t take long before he was able to place his mark on nowadays dance music. Working with legendary names as Tiësto and Afrojack, signed to the world’s largest record label Spinnin’ Records, this is a DJ whose career gets boosted year by year.
At a young age, Quintino (born in 1985 into a musical family as Quinten van den Berg) begins exploring different musical styles and artists before deciding to start a career behind the decks. As he finishes school, he realizes his strong passion for DJing and begins picking up gigs at additional venues. And then, at 18, Quintino is discovered by house music mastermind Laidback Luke. The DJ is so impressed with Quintino’s precision and unrivaled ability behind the turntables that he decides to mentor the emerging artist.
Things are getting in motion. After a few years working with the highly popular Dutch dance event Nope Is Dope, the young DJ starts making new steps. A definite milestone moment includes remixing trap hit ‘Rap Das Armas’, his first #1 record in The Netherlands, as well as the release of ‘Epic’ in 2011 that catapults to platinum, almost touching the 17 million views on YouTube. That same year Quintino also works closely with his friend Afrojack to produce hit tracks like ‘Selecta’.
By then, the Dutchman has solidified himself as a global staple on the electronic music dance scene, and signs a deal with influential dance record label Spinnin’ Records. He starts working with DJs like Tiësto and Alvaro, in particular to release the iconic Ultra Music Festival anthem. With tracks like ‘Go Hard’, ‘Slammer’, ‘Fatality’, ‘Genesis’ and his remix of R3hab & Trevor Guthrie’s hit record ‘Soundwave’ gracing the charts Quintino’s presence within the dance industry is only getting stronger.
“I want to take things further, whether it’s the music or specially prepared shows”, he emphasizes. “My performance has become so much more than the DJ stuff I started out with. I’m in the big league now and want to present myself as the artist that I am. So, lots of ambition here, I’m only getting started.”
