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.
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.
The Dutch DJ, real name Quinten van den Berg, has climbed a further six places in the Top 100 DJs poll this year. “It really made me happy when I heard the news that I was in the Top 100 again,” he tells DJ Mag when we contact him for his interview. “Even though music speaks for itself, it’s great when it gets recognized.”
Signed to giant Dutch behemoth Spinnin', his latest release is a huge EDM update of the Nomad house classic 'Devotion', while earlier in the year he again teamed with his 'Epic' cohort Sandro Silva for 'Aftermath', a release supported by DV&LM, Hardwell, Garrix, Showtek et al.
“We always make sure that there is time enough in my schedule to be in the studio,” Quintino tells us. “And on the planes I sleep like a baby, so that is a good perk.”
He also says that he's had some great shows this year such as EDC and Ultra Korea, and is heading back Stateside for EDC Orlando in early November before returning for Electrowave in France later in the month.
