The Gus Tinto as we know him, has begun as little as any other DJ. He grew up in the region of Rotterdam in the Netherlands en has played the piano ever since he was able to walk. He had his own drive-in-show as a teenager and played for his school and local sportclubs.

By now, he has changed his name to DJ Gus Tinto, this fits him and his style of music better. He managed to develop his own sound and is inspired by the party sounds of his favorite party island, Ibiza. Gus Tinto has been varying several music styles like; Tech house, latinhouse, funky club, progressieve club & vocals.
