2x-Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum artist, producer, and DJ Steve Aoki has collaborated with Dutch powerhouse Quintino to release their second joint single “Motor.” Arriving just in time for the summer, the festival anthem is an infectious mix of Aoki’s signature electro sound and Quintino’s hard-hitting big room beats.
“Motor” is the highly-anticipated follow-up to Aoki and Quintino’s main stage staple “Mayhem,” which appeared on Aoki’s 5OKI EP. Initially premiered by Billboard, the track became a fan favorite amongst fans and DJs, receiving spins from the likes of David Guetta and Afrojack. To date, “Mayhem” has accumulated over 75 million streams.
Most recently, Aoki and Quintino have joined forces to remix one another’s work. Last year Quintino remixed Aoki’s HiROQUEST: GENESIS dance anthem “Save Me (ft. Harvey).” In February 2023, Aoki’s supergroup trio 3 Are Legend (Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike) provided an explosive remix of Quintino’s hard-hitting tune “Name Of Your DJ (ft. MC Ambush).”
This summer both artists are scheduled to hit the European festival and club circuit. Fans can catch both Aoki and Quintino performing individual sets at Tomorrowland, Airbeat One, Amnesia Ibiza, and many other stops.
Counting nearly 3 billion music streams to his name, Steve Aoki is a true visionary. Billboard described the 2x-GRAMMY-nominated music producer, artist, fashion designer, entrepreneur, NFT futurist and Dim Mak Records founder as “one of the most in-demand entertainers in the world.” A Guinness World Record holder for the “Most Traveled Musician in a Single Calendar Year,” Aoki has performed at nearly every top festival around the world, including Coachella, Ultra Music Festival, Lollapalooza, Fuji Rock Festival, Tomorrowland and Electric Daisy Carnival. In 2022, Aoki also graced recent covers of Entrepreneur Magazine, Electronic Musician, and Adweek as their “Visionary of the Year.”
As a globally successful cross-genre solo artist, Aoki has collaborated with an impressive list of varied artists, including BTS, Maluma, Snoop Dogg, Linkin Park, blink-182, One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Uzi Vert, 2 Chainz and Daddy Yankee, on top of having released three Platinum singles, six Gold singles, and over ten Top 10 radio records. After unveiling four Neon Future albums, Aoki recently released HiROQUEST: Genesis, featuring collaborations with Taking Back Sunday, Mod Sun, Kane Brown and more.
Aoki approaches each new endeavor with the same sense of dedication he’s put into his past achievements, including the Grammy-nominated Netflix documentary I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead (2016) and his memoir BLUE: The Color of Noise (2019). In 2012, he also founded THE AOKI FOUNDATION to support organizations in brain science and its research. His influential record label Dim Mak, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2021, is known for being a launching pad for the careers of prominent acts like Bloc Party, The Chainsmokers, Bloody Beetroots, The Kills, Zedd and Diplo. Most recently, Aoki created the A0K1VERSE, an NFT membership community, powered by the Passport, that welcomes his fans to both virtual and real-world experiences. Aoki is also executive producer for “American Hiro,” a series in development with FX Networks directed by Jon M. Chu, chronicling the life of his father, Hiroaki “Rocky” Aoki, the legendary entrepreneur and daredevil businessman who created the Benihana empire. In whatever space Steve Aoki enters, the multi-hyphenate innovator continues to set trends and inspire creativity on a global level.
Highly talented Dutch DJ and producer Quintino is one of the leading forces in the global dance music scene today. With an established reputation for his live performances, Quintino continues to be a staple on the main stage working alongside legendary names such as Tiësto, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Nervo, Alok and Hardwell. Mastering the fundamentals as a DJ in the Dutch club scene, the young DJ started making big steps in 2011 when he released ‘Epic’ with Sandro Silva which became platinum and one of the most played club tracks of the year. Over the past years Quintino has shaped his big room progressive sound to be at the forefront of electronic dance music. Known for his big sing along vocals and skills on stage, Quintino continues to prove why he is remained in the top tier and will be for years to come. “I want to take things further, whether it’s the music merchandising or highly produced shows” Quintino emphasizes. “My performance has become so much more than I started out with. I’m in the big league now and want to present myself as the creative artist that I am”.
