2014 has been an exciting year for Quintino. In May he secured a headline residency at Drai’s Las Vegas Nightclub and Beach Club, while his track, ‘Go Hard’ received more than two million views on YouTube. This was followed by 'Blowfish', with newcomer Kenneth G, and the recently released 'Slammer', featuring Ftampa.

Quintino’s DJ career began when he was spotted by Laidback Luke when he was 18-years-old. The older DJ took the aspiring Quintino under his wing. “He brought me into dance music and made me fall in love with it.”

After working with Nope Is Dope for a few years, Quintino went on to remix ‘Rap Das Armas’, which attracted 20,000,000 YouTube views and went platinum in the dance charts in several countries. ‘Epic’ followed in 2011, which also went platinum.

In 2013, Quintino signed a deal with EDM label, Spinnin’ Records. Tracks such as 2013‘s ‘Puzzel’ paved the way to more recent success.

“I’m really happy to be included in this year’s list. It’s an honour to hear I had so many votes.”
