More and more EDM DJ/producers have embraced classic styles of dance music of late, but Quintino's latest fusion is particularly unexpected. The Dutch DJ/producer has released a track titled "teQno (Music Is The Answer)" that derives influence from the techno genre.

Before you get too excited, the song itself is a big room anthem made with sold-out festival crowds in mind. Incorporated throughout are droning bass lines and heavy kick drums that simply hint at the subversive aesthetic of techno. Rounding out the arrangement is a "classic '90s vocal sample" that invigorates the concept with a singalong quality. 

Quintino (real name Quinten van den Berg) broke through in 2011 with a remix of Cidinho & Doca's "Rap Das Armas" and continues to command a sizeable following today. Last year alone, he amassed over 100 million streams on Spotify.
