There aren’t many artists who have experienced a meteoric rise to fame quite like Quintino. He is undoubtedly one of the few true DJ’s with a lifelong passion for dance music and is literally on the verge of becoming one of the leading forces in the global music scene today.
One of the most recognizable names in Dance Music, Laidback Luke, discovered Quintino at the young the age of 18, and inspired him to take his career as a DJ and producer beyond the normal club scene. It wasn’t long before he began playing landmark gigs and high profile festivals.Highlights include performing at Mansion and LIV in Miami, Pacha in New York, XS in Las Vegas and multiple tours in Europe and Asia.
However, nothing compared to the life-changing break that came in 2009 when his remix of Cidinho & Doca’s ‘Rap Das Armas’ was released. Becoming a worldwide summer anthem and notching over 10 million YouTube views it was a musical sensation that placed Quintino forever in the record books. That same year Quintino released the singles ‘Heaven’ and ‘You Can’t Deny;’ cementing the predictions that he will be around as a force to be reckoned with for quite some time.
But even with all the success in 2009 it wasn’t till Quintino decided to join forces with Sandro Silva in the summer of 2011 to release ‘Epic’ on Tiësto’s ‘Musical Freedom’ label that his career would never be the same again. The single topped DMC’s Buzzchart, entered the top five of the Beatport Top 100 and hit the #1 position of the Dutch charts. Smashing clubs, ‘Epic’ was quickly added to the record cases of Tiësto and the Swedish House Mafia. The following months, ‘Epic’ remained at the top of the charts, selling enough copies to gain platinum status in the Netherlands.
Quintino has proven time and time again that he thinks big in everything he delivers. He kept up the pace after the massive success of ‘Epic’ and returned on Musical Freedom and Wall Recordings. In January 2012 Tiësto presented ‘We Gonna Rock’ on his label as Quintino’s follow up for ‘Epic’. ‘The One and Only’ appeared on Afrojack’s imprint as well as a new collaboration with MOTI, called ‘Circuits’.
