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...”
