Globally acclaimed dance music phenomenon Quintino returns with a fresh blast for the mainstages, dropping his already popular DJ weapon “Empty City.” Taking flight on vigorous beats, sultry vocals of fellow Dutch artist RYVM and thrilling progressive vibes, the record is made for peaktime performance, an instant anthem that underscores once again Quintino’s productional talent and ongoing evolution as an artist. Enter this exciting “Empty City,” as it’s out now on Spinnin’ Records!
Making waves for over ten years already, Quintino has impressively moved from young tastemaker to one of dance music’s most renowned artists. His genre defining 2011 electro house hit “Epic” (a collab with Sandro Silva) kicked things off, as he continued to impress an increasing international audience with major festival tunes like “Freak,” “I Just Can’t” (both alongside R3hab), the Alok collab “Party Never Ends” and the Steve Aoki teamup “Mayhem,” all racking up tens of millions of streams.
Recently, Quintino developed his music even further, shaping his own big room progressive sound, dropping massively popular solo releases like “Switch Back,” “Coming Home” and this year’s smash “No Time.”
Meanwhile, his live shows evolved into huge events, confirming Quintino as a versatile entertainer who’s able to conquer audiences all over the globe with his uplifting sound and persona. As we speak, he’s gearing up for his next Asia tour, including shows in Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea and Japan.
One of the weapons he’ll be performing with is this brand new single “Empty City,” already a much favored highlight during recent shows. It’s a lively teamup with Dutch singer RYVM, coming up strong in recent years with a series of popular songs, including singles “Waiting For You” and “Lost With You”.
This record sets off with cool, tension building beats, before breaking down into a touching vocal part, courtesy of RYVM, sharing the feeling that even in an empty city ‘I will never feel alone.’
It’s a message of love and solidarity, emphasized by uplifting, progressive tinged melodies in true Quintino style, swirling their way towards a mesmerizing drop. Once the beat kicks in, it’s euphoria to the limit; hands in the air, good vibes going through the roof. “Empty City” leaves you breathless, energized and longing for more, a crowdpleaser in every sense.
“With this track I just wanted to make a big one for the mainstages. The progressive sound has been going off during my sets and the vocal just really brings the track to a whole new level.” – Quintino
