Belgian techno titan Charlotte de Witte has taken the #1 spot for Techno at DJ Mag Awards, and is the talk of Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) after her label KNTXT took over the city’s Ziggo Dome venue for a killer showcase.
Claiming #1 spot for Techno at DJ Mag Awards, it is the third year in a row Charlotte de Witte has won the highest spot for Techno in the DJ Mag Top 100 awards, firmly establishing her reputation as one of the most talented artists in the world. Furthermore, she climbs nine spots this year, settling in at #14 in this year’s main poll.
“I’m super happy to announce that I got voted best techno for this year’s DJ Mag Top 100!” Charlotte enthuses. “It’s an absolute honor to win this award for the third year in a row now. Thank you all so much for your love and support! It means the world to me and I will never take these moments for granted.”
The revered DJ will soon head to South America for KNTXT showcases in Buenos Aires and São Paulo, and will play at Flanders Expo in her native Belgium on 4th February 2023.
The 2022 edition of KNTXT Ghent at Flanders Expo, saw Charlotte de Witte play a monumental 10 hour all-night set for a record breaking 20 000 capacity crowd. On February 4th 2023, KNTXT returns to this epic venue, debuting their brand new concept: KNTXT konnected. A night filled with back to back DJ sets from Charlotte de Witte and others that will be announced soon.
Charlotte explains: “We’re going for a new edition in my hometown! Super excited to take KNTXT back to Ghent again for another massive night at the iconic Flanders Expo. We, the KNTXT Family, will prepare something unique for you this night! Something you’ve never seen before. This will be madness!”
KNTXT konnected will make the unique crossover between solo sets & exclusive B2B sessions, seamlessly morphing into each other throughout the evening as the night progresses. An exclusive showcase of KNTXT label’s distinctive and versatile sound. This makes KNTXT konnected an unparalleled experience both for the crowd as for the DJ’s!
Hot off the back of a successful ADE, Charlotte de Witte and her revered label KNTXT took over the famed Ziggo Dome with Awakenings on the Friday of ADE where the nine-hour party featured sets by Enrico Sangiuliano, FJAAK, I Hate Models, Indira Paganotto and ONYVAA – topped off with a memorable headline performance from de Witte herself. She also teamed up with fashion brand Filling Pieces to create an exclusive collection, designed jointly by Charlotte and Filling Pieces founder Guillaume Philibert, which was launched at the brand’s flagship Amsterdam store during ADE. It follows the recent EP ‘Apollo’, an uncompromising collection of club tracks released on her own label.
Charlotte de Witte has become known for her dark, stripped-back brand of techno, acid and anything high energy. She’s often crossing borders but maintains a deep form of respect for the underground. Highlight performances across the continents – including being the first techno (and female) DJ to headline the mainstage at Tomorrowland – Mixmag and DJ Mag covers, high-ranking positions in the charts and lists confirm her status as nouveaux techno royalty.
The world’s #1 techno act, Charlotte de Witte is an uncompromising tour de force who remains firmly on the ascendancy.
