If there’s one DJ about to take the world by storm, it’s Charlotte de Witte. Never shying away from a challenge, always moulding her career and music the way she envisions it. And scorching through a myriad of uncompromising, aggressive techno sets across Europe every single weekend.
No surprise then, that the rest of the world is calling for Charlotte. After already having toured Asia and Canada, she’s ready to conquer the world. Few dj’s belong to the group that can work on that level – from the biggest stages to the sweatiest basement raves. Still her heart remains tied to the both the underground Techno scene and Belgium where she can be found championing new talent both on her Saturday night radio show, ‘Playground Charlotte de Witte’ on Studio Brussel, Belgium’s leading radio station, and at KNTXT de Witte’s residency at Brussels Techno institution Fuse.
Having moved into production, de Witte has wasted no time in establishing herself as a serious talent in the studio as well as behind the decks. But whilst a Charlotte de Witte DJ set is guaranteed to get you moving, Charlotte’s own music has provided her with a chance to reveal another side. Her aggressive, stripped-down approach to her own tracks is a testament to that afore-mentioned dark side, while the tracks also often feature her own vocals. “Making music really gives me a chance to tap into the more emotional side of electronic music that I love. Music that has that melancholic side to it, I just find it so much more interesting, whether DJ’ing, producing or just listening myself at home.”
Her release on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings “Weltschmerz EP” gained massive national and internatonal support, and latest one seems like the best one yet.
Charlotte de Witte is back on Sleaze Records after her outstanding debut earlier this year. Her second effort for the label features 4 quality original tracks, each bringing a different vibe, showing the variation of her production talent.
The title track ‘Wisdom’ is the biggest of the bunch, having a huge impact in the peak moments. ‘I’ll See You Tonight’ is more dark & driving, with a stand out vocal cut. ‘Sending Them’ is a stripped down, loopy groover and ‘Maelstrom’ rounds off the EP nicely with a pounding beat, a crazy warped vocal and hard hitting percussive elements.
Wisdom EP is available on Beatport and digital release date is 24th July.
