We proudly present you the Dennis Quin Masterclass, held on the 20th of June at MPA!
 
Dennis Quin’s trademark is the effective combination of raw analogue elements with an irresistible rhythmic drive. His extreme dedication to bringing his own sound knows no limits. Being a real house fanatic, he’s focussed on bringing the combination of style and energetic sounds into his production with the ability to enrich today’s vogue with timeless elements from the past.
 
Dennis has become a highly-renowned artist in his own right on labels such as Snatch! Records, Madhouse, Simma Black, UTTU and Dancetrax, just to name a few. Selling tracks by the bucket-load, he reached the Top 20 of Beatport’s top-selling House Artists of the Year in 2016, being the number 4 House artist in 2017 (Traxsource).

More about Dennis Quin:
 
Quin’s trademark sound features a strong energetic drive and rhythmic elements, which have a major impact on the dancefloor, whilst retaining an abundance of musicality. When he goes deeper and darker he somehow retains his trademark strong groove, which is always a firm ingredient within his own productions. As a DJ, Dennis consistently presents a real show behind the decks, both physically and aurally.
 
His sets all contain those key goosebump-inducing moments that make it all worthwhile. He most often fills his set with his own exclusive material rather than playing ‘hit records’. Next to playing regularly on festivals and in renowned venues in the Netherlands, Dennis played multiple shows on Ibiza and countries like the UK, France, Belgium and Russia.
 
Next to being Dennis Quin, early 2018 he launched his alter ego ‘HAFTØR’ that gives the ability to produce outside the (House) spectrum making abstract, minimal and raw techno whilst the sound of Dennis Quin remains House. Releases on: Snatch! Records, SIMMA Black, Defected Records, Madhouse Records, UTTU / Dancetrax, Food Music.
