With Tomorrowland 2018's two weekends now committed to beautifully debauched memory we can confirm the ten most played tracks from the Belgian mega-festival.
Earlier this week we focused on the major contenders for 2014’s Top 100 DJs crown. But which DJs could be the surprise additions be in this year’s poll? Which artists, riding on a wave of hype and social media support, are tipped to make debuts in 2014? We teamed up with Miller Genuine Draft to let you know!
Taking a satirical play on his recently released single 'Go Hard,' Quintino has created an EDM centered spoof to the popular "Viagra" commercial, likening it to not going, ahem, soft.
Quinten van den Berg could serve as the poster boy for electronic dance music in 2014. Known to the masses as Quintino, the DJ-producer’s chiseled good looks, angular jaw and brooding come-hither eyes are common features amongst the Dutch – as is the high velocity of DJs exported from the Netherlands to spin like windmills across America.
There wasn't a dry seat in the house last weekend during Quintino's EDC NY set.
After garnering fiendish plays (over a million in one week) on his new video for 'Go Hard' (released on Spinnin, May 16) and the successful kickoff of his new residency at Drai’s Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend, he’s putting the "quint" in quintessential DJ superstar.
Tonight we return to Zouk Singapore for our annual DJ Mag x Zouk Party. This year’s line up features electro don Quintino in the main room plus Osunlade who will bring his deep and jacking techno sound to Velvet Underground.
Our in-house DJ crew - DJ Mag Allstars will be on hand to warm up both rooms.
From: Amsterdam, Netherlands
DJ style: “Electronic and energetic.”
Best known for: “‘Go Hard’ and ‘Good Vibes’.”

Dutch dance music producer/DJ Quinten van den Berg, aka Quintino, has been steadily ascending the Top 100 poll since 2014, last year reaching an impressive No.30 before jumping another five places this year. But he’s been making music long before then; known initially for being Laidback Luke’s protégé, he broke into the charts back in 2011 with the platinum-selling single ‘Epic’. Since then he’s collaborated with some of the biggest EDM acts in the world and signed to the gargantuan label, Spinnin’ Records.
“I was able to do a 12-week world tour this year, did collabs with Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, Deorro and many more,” Quintino tells DJ Mag. “We finished the design of the new merch, which is coming end of 2018, and currently I’m working on my first ever album — and I’m so excited! Got a lot in store for 2019...”

More evidence that Amsterdam is the smallest city with the biggest impact on global electronic music, Quinten Van Den Berg, aka Quintino, again finds himself riding high after another stellar 12 months in the game.
Since the last time we unveiled the world’s biggest music poll, he hasn’t really let up in terms of pace. There was that big stage bomb he made with fellow Netherlander Hardwell, ‘Baldadig’; the tune that resulted from teaming up with high-flying Australian duo, NERVO, ‘Lost In You’; not to mention the sultry end of summer electric-R&B slow jam, ‘I Just Can’t’, crafted with R3hab.
This is before we come to the latest instalment of his aptly-titled ‘Go Harder’ EP series, which hit chapter three this year. And the relentless touring schedule that sees him showcase his performance skills across the world.
“This year I’ve been trying to balance studio time with my tour schedule, which was really important,” he tells DJ Mag. “I opened a new studio for myself and other talent, which we built from almost nothing while touring all over the world. So that was a very intense and busy period, but now the studio is finished and I can't ask for anything else.”
A talent honed since the tender age of 18, Quintino is a case in point when it comes to the age-old phrase of good things coming to those who work tirelessly for what they want.
