From: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Best known for: “‘Go Hard’ and ‘Good Vibes’.”
Fave tune of 2018: “Camelphat ‘Panic Room’.”
Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2018: “Curbi.”

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.
