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.
"teQno (Music Is The Answer)" by Quintino is out now via Spinnin' Records. Stream or download it across platforms here.
