Charlotte de Witte – Biography 

Charlotte de Witte was born in Ghent, Belgium on 21 July 1992. Around 2009, she started to explore Ghent’s underground nightclub scene, where she was drawn to electronic music. She started DJing in 2010, mainly playing electro music; her production work commenced about two years later.

Winning a Studio Brussel DJ contest in 2011, she subsequently performed at the Tomorrowland festival.

She adopted the alias Raving George to avoid negative preconceptions against female DJs, releasing her debut EP in 2013. Following the release of a string of EPs on Bad Life and Crux Records, her 2015 single “You’re Mine,” which featured Oscar and the Wolf, became a hit.

In 2015, de Witte dropped her alias and started using her real name. This was accompanied by a change in her music style from previously electro and electro house more in the direction of techno. She cites a set by German Techno DJ Len Faki that she heard at a festival as the origin of this stylistic change. Her debut EP under her name, Weltschmerz, was released on the same year on Turbo Recordings.

This was followed by a string of 2017 EPs, as well as 2018’s Heart of Mine and The Healer EPs. Charlotte de Witte has performed at various notable electronic music events, including Junction 2 Festival, Boiler Room and Printworks.

In 2019, she launched her own label, KNTXT. Artists such as Chris Liebing, Monoloc, or Alignment have released works under KNTXT. In the same year, she was voted the world’s best techno DJ at the DJ Awards. Since 2019, she has advanced to one of the most acclaimed DJ’s in techno, winning notable awards in the industry and earning her the nickname “techno queen”.

On February 5, 2021, de Witte announced via social media her engagement to Italian techno DJ and producer Enrico Sangiuliano. Later that year, the couple released their first joint record, a remix of the 1990 Italian-Belgian trance song “The Age of Love”.

The remix became a hit, topping of Beatport’s 2021 techno bestsellers list and receiving a gold record in 2022 for over 500,000 units sold. The couple got married in 2022.
