Due to his fast growing interest in electronic dance music Justino aka Tino Schurer started playing records in 1992.
Justino was and is always on the lookout for new sounds as long as they are hard and strong bass-driven. And when new styles evolved within the dance-scene he was not afraid to experiment with them, but always with the harder sounds in mind. This resulted in his own unique style of Hard-dance, a mix of pounding Hardstyle, Techno and Hardhouse.
With his new style Justino got a lot of bookings in the bigger clubs in Germany, such as
New World Centre (Kleve), Zak (Ulsen) Empire Plaza (Wezel) and many more. He played in Germany whith names like: Kay Tracid, Melanie di Tria, Gary D, Technoboy, Isaac and the Prophet to name a few.
Known for his enthusiasm behind the decks combined with his pumping and uplifting sounds he really keeps the party going. He loves to play with the public and is always looking for interaction with the crowd.
Because of the popularity of his sound, especially in the North of the Netherlands, and his enthusiasm he played on parties in Leeuwarden, Groningen, Drachten, Sneek, Coevorden and more. But his DJ-carrier got a real boost from the moment he started in 97 the Dark Forces party organisation (now called Forces of Dance). Results were bookings for parties like Qlub Tempo (Zaandam), Hardhouse Generators (Germany), Play 2 (Ibiza) and one of the Highlights of his carrier so far, Nature One 2004 and 2005.(Germany), where Justino played for over than 130 000 clubbers.
His newest career move was the start of the record label OVERLORD RECORDS. His newest tracks will be released on it. Justino's first release Along with the melody has great response from all big names in industry already.
His style nowadays depends on what gig he is playing, but is in general a divine mix of Hardtrance, Harddance and Techno. With his favourite tools, 3 decks and the DJM 600, he will rock the place four sure!!!!
