Charlotte de Witte is a Belgian DJ and record producer who is best known for her dark and stripped-back brand of minimal techno and acid techno music. She has previously performed under the alias Raving George. She is the founder of the label KNTXT.
Around 2009, charlotte de witte started checking out Ghent’s underground nightclub scene after hearing about it from some friends. She was drawn to the electronic music being played there and decided to start DJing in 2010. Mainly playing electro music, her production work began a couple years later. She won a Studio Brussel DJ contest in 2011 and ended up performing at their New Year’s Eve party that year.
She took on the alias Raving George to avoid any negative preconceptions against female DJs and released her debut EP in 2013. After putting out a string of EPs on Bad Life and Crux Records, her 2015 single “You’re Mine” featuring Oscar and the Wolf became a hit.
In 2015, charlotte de Witte dropped her alias and started using her real name. Her debut EP under her name, Weltschmerz, was released that same year on Turbo Recordings. These were followed by a string of 2017 EPs, as well as 2018’s Heart of Mine and The Healer EPs. de Witte has performed at various notable electronic music festivals, including Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, and Ultra Music Festival.
