The latest delivery from techno’s rising star, Charlotte de Witte, is an EP teeming with chaotic, hypnotizing groove that has us hitting replay. The young Belgian recently relocated from her hometown of Ghent to Brussels, inspiring the title of this new release, ‘Our Journey’, on Glasgow-based Sleaze Records. Charlotte is no stranger to hypnosis – it’s a hallmark of her work and one of the things that first drew us to her over a year ago – but the title track of this EP is infused with a new twist, thanks to creepy vocals that reach into darker realms. “I don’t know what happened in the studio, but I suppose I got into some state of trance while working on it,” she says.
Fresh off the back of a breakout 2016, replete with a strong release on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings and taking home the Best Producer award at Belgium’s Red Bull Elektropedia Awards (aka, the Oscars of Belgian nightlife), Charlotte de Witte is gearing up for a new year of tours, including in Asia and the US. DJ Mag is pleased to present the premiere of ‘Our Journey’ – and we’re pretty sure it’ll take you on a weird, warped journey of your own.
