Quin’s passion for house music began in the early 1990s when he purchased his first few records by Kerri Chandler, Todd Terry & Masters At Work. Inspired by the Chicago/NY house sound, Quin’s signature sound is diverse but always consistent within his own productions and has been adapted to today’s global house scene.
He has collaborated with Kerri Chandler and received support from Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Louie Vega, Marco Carola, Chris Stussy, and Benny Rodrigues. Quin is a regular on BBC Radio 1 and does resident mixes on Dutch National Radio SLAM! (The Boom Room).
2023 sees Dennis Quin unveil a new label project with DQ Music, a vinyl-first imprint set to showcase his rich and diverse house sound. The label has recently launched in style this April with a very special production with deep ties to his home country’s electronic scene, ‘The Gryphon’.
