Dutch DJ/Producer Quintino showed a different side of him, with new release “TeQno” on Spinnin Records, which samples an iconic tune.
The big room maestro needs no introduction. He pretty much created big room back in 2011, after being discovered by fellow dutchie Laidback Luke. Quintino – real name Quinten van den Berg – released a remix to popular Brazilian song “Rap das Armas”, which had a fair degree of success. But what truly set Quintino apart and put him on the map was his release of “Epic” with Sandro Silva, a track that moulded the big room scene we know and love today, with the track still being one of the biggest anthems in dance music history.
Since then, Quintino has risen to new heights: over the years he has collaborated with artists like Hardwell, Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, NERVO and Deorro, released major tracks – like “Good Vibes” feat. Laurell, “I Just Can’t” feat R3HAB and many more – released 4 successful EPs, and the list goes on and on. Recently, Quintino was confirmed to perform on the Galp Beach Party, in a show which shows great promise.
Quintino likes to experiment once in a while, producing a sound different from the huge hard hitting big room anthems we’re used to, and he has done exactly that with his latest track “TeQno”. The track starts out with a vocal we all know, sampling the classic “Music is the Answer”, with some background percussion and “old school” vibes synths accompanying the vocal. The build-up ensues, and so comes the house inspired drop, with dry, quick kicks and a thumping bassline, somewhat reminiscent of David Guetta’s latest track “This Ain’t Techno”. The breakdown grabs the vocal once again, which leads us to the second, more fuller drop, which features Latin-inspired percussion and switches up the sound from the housey-er vibes of the first drop to the more trademark Quintino sound we’re all so familiar with.
