Charlotte de Witte @ Ultra Miami 2019 (Carl Cox x Resistance Stage)

Charlotte de Witte. My new number 1 superstar DJ. As I call her, the beast from Belgium. And the reason for this rather unusual name? Well, the music she plays is demonic, and she takes no prisoner. Always on spot when it comes to mixing, and she devours records like I've not seen before. Trust me, it's a positive nickname. She came, she saw, she conquered. She is now one of the biggest DJs in the whole world. And she's capable to stand her ground, and demolish everything in front of her.

The last couple of days I've been hooked to everything Charlotte related. I've been on Youtube and Soundcloud, and have listened to many hours of her performing in the snow, in the scorching heat, basically everywhere. I'm amazed by what she's capable of. Her sets do speak to me, and I just love her enthusiasm and passion. You can tell that she's enjoying herself, and she knows it. Not one to raise her hands every 15 seconds and shout down a microphone that she's got a new collaboration, but she is focussed. Extremely focussed. And moves her hair out of her face every 15 seconds. But besides that, she's determined to make each set work, wherever she plays.

This year she played at Ultra Miami, and she nailed it. Her set got reduced due to massive flight delays from Montreal to Miami, but those 47 minutes she's on stage, she absolutely plays her finest set so far. Trust me, I've watched/listening to a lot of her sets, and this is really a fantastic one.

At first the crowd does make a lot of noises, but are more focussed on them being live on Instagram and Facebook, but once Charlotte grabs them by their throats, she doesn't let go, and they all become obsessed/possessed by this Belgian Techno Queen.

Normally I would focus on Soundcloud sets, but seeing as the Youtube video is truly wicked, I would like you to see her in action. She's got the skills, and determination. I'm really in awe with the way she mixes. No fucking about, occassionally a smile here and there, but that's it: music is the main focus. Good choice, to be fair. Who needs to throw cakes or have a pre-recorded set when you can actually deliver an awesome set, and take the crowd to the next level?

Here's the tracklist.

01. Anetha - Return Ticket

02. Fatima Haji - Taking Over (AnGy KoRe Remix)

03. Rita Gherz - Madness

04. Coyu - Practical Disorder Compulsory (Coyu Raw Mix)

05. Eats Everything - Space Raiders (Charlotte de Witte Remix)

06. Cutout - Heat (Bruce Remix)

07. Dave Simon - Stripes Of Soden (TWCOR Remix)

08. DJ Skull - Acid Wiss L

09. Alex Bilancini - Oblivion

10. Charlotte de Witte - This

11. Sebastian Groth - Snow Leopard (Gary Burrows Remix)

As I said before, and I'll say it again: Charlotte is just seriously impressive. Her skills are easy to get addicted to, and the way she delivers the music is just beautiful. She makes me smile, and not actually care about the world around me. And, let's not forget: the tracks she used for this set are just strong and powerful.

When I heard this set for the first time, it made me happy. And sad at the same time. I've never had the opportunity to see/hear her live, but I was happy that this set was recorded, and I can enjoy it whenever, wherever. That's the beauty of the internet.

Her set is 45 minutes long, and she just devours the crowd. I've got only credit for this Queen of Techno. No negative feedback, no mixing issues, no shite records. Everything is just picture perfect. But I would not have expected anything less from this future 'number 1' DJ in the world.

I just love the fact that she is having fun and is focussed at the same time. She deserves the world and everything in it!

Go and check her set out, if you haven't already!

Best record? The record that is played at 31 minutes. God, that record is filth, pure filth.
