Charlotte de Witte (Mary Go Wild / Novamute)
If there’s one DJ about to take the world by storm, it’s Charlotte de Witte. Never shying away from a challenge, always malling her career and music the way she envisions it. And scorching through a myriad of uncompromising, agressive 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, the U.S. and Canada, she’ll be heading to Australia, New Zealand, Central and South America next. 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 Brussels, 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 agressive, stripped-down approach to her own tracks is a testament to that beforementioned 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. For now, with her upcoming releases, her ongoing radio show, Fuse residency and a packed tour diary de Witte shows no sign of slowing down. Despite her love of all things dark, the future for Charlotte de Witte looks very bright indeed.
This is only the beginning, it seems. “My Feeling”, from Charlotte’s follow-up EP on Turbo Recordings “Sehnsucht”, was Mixmag’s Track of 2016, the year in which Charlotte won Red Bull Elektropedia’s Award for best producer in her native Belgium. To top it all off, Trax Magazine dubbed her ‘nouvel espoir de la techno belge’ while Tsugi coined her “revelation for 2017”.
Kudeki (Noctuary / Public Works, SF)
Kudeki is a DJ/producer based in San Francisco, where she’s been throwing parties since 2014. Her latest project as resident DJ of Noctuary focuses on celebrating female-identified & non-binary artists in house + techno, bringing them the attention & opportunities they deserve. As a DJ her gigs range from undergrounds and Burning Man to sharing the stage with artists like A Guy Called Gerald, Volvox, Noncompliant, and more. She aims to provide dancefloor therapy through through raw, dark, and energetic selections in melodic techno, electro, house, and acid that keep the floor moving. Her debut EP was released May 2018 on Perfect Location Records.
Symonne (Booty Patrol)
Symonne is a Bay Area singer-songwriter, producer, DJ and dreamer
Symonne fell in love with house music in the Boston underground community and quickly began DJing and producing her own electronic music. Her music is melodic, conscious and unique: firmly rooted in the deep house, minimal techno and deep tech she loves, with interjections from other genres, times and places - designed to make you think and feel as much as it makes you dance.
Symonne began DJing publicly a little over two years ago and since then has risen to regular appearances at F8, The Public Works and events for and by the Burning Man community. In 2018, she has added 1015 Folsom, Underground SF and The Great Northern to her resume. Symonne is a member of the all-woman DJ collective, Booty Patrol which has a monthly residency at F8, and is passionate about inclusivity and diversity in electronic music. 2018 has also seen Symonne co-found a unique monthly event Open House, a house-forward party featuring open decks, at 111 Minna Art Gallery, which is quickly becoming as an incubator for local talent and novel sounds - giving space to up & coming DJs as well as established DJs looking to experiment and co-create.
A recent review of her latest live mix from Public Works (where she provided support for Nico Stojan and Oceanus Orientalis) has called her music "[a] bold abandon of conformity to one style or genre, other than one that is completely self-defined. Symonne takes listeners on a journey of rhythms and narratives, full of unexpected and provocative surprises. A true artist, she weaves themes and concepts into her sets, and challenges listeners to interpret the deeper meaning."
Her original productions feature her vocal stylings over the unique garage-influenced, minimal house beat styles she so often fuses together as a DJ.
Be on the lookout for upcoming releases and shows in 2018.
