Charlotte de Witte – Roar

Here’s what Charlotte had to say about the release:

“Roar stands for power, action, adrenaline and a sense of letting go. There is a certain energy that is unleashed every time I play this track. “Roar” quickly became one of the highlights of my sets, and I’m very excited to release it.”

An unstoppable force at the helm of a global movement, de Witte is not just a DJ; she is an icon in a category of her own, overhauling the very fabric of the electronic music scene with unparalleled influence. Harnessing a distinct brand of artistry that knows no categorical bounds, the DJ, producer and record label head has cemented herself as one of the music industry’s most in-demand names at nothing short of breakneck speed.

Since bursting onto the scene in 2010, de Witte has earned a cult-like following and critical acclaim, consistently selling out shows around the world with unprecedented fervor. de Witte is also the founder of KNTXT, a multi-hyphenate, experiential platform that includes a record label, live event arm, apparel label / fashion brand and more.

Through category-blurring collaborations, enthralling performances and unexpected activations around the world, de Witte has built an immersive empire that captures the essence of the underground in a way that resonates with a new generation of consumers, leaving an indelible mark on the industry as a whole.

This was evident through a dynamic campaign and tour for her “Overdrive” EP, which kicked off in NYC with a pop-up shop at Extra Butter, two sold-out nights at the Brooklyn Mirage and a guerrilla-style surprise performance that shut down Orchard Street for hundreds.

Culminating the campaign to Los Angeles, she hosted her first all-night-long, sold-out solo show on the West Coast at the iconic Shrine Expo Hall. Wrapping up the year at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), she celebrated her latest EP, “Power Of Thought,” with a 3-night KNTXT Turbo Club pop-up, featuring the Charlotada – a daytime hangout in collaboration with Tequila Don Julio.

Roar” sets a powerful precedent for its corresponding campaign for de Witte as she continues to build on the momentum of a massive 2023 for de Witte that saw several professional milestones for the titan of techno.

In 2022, she was the first techno act (and woman) that closed the Main Stage of Tomorrowland. Last year, de Witte made history once again as the first techno and female artist to headline Miami’s Ultra Music Festival’s Mainstage. She also closed out the Mainstage at Movement Festival, making de Witte the first woman to achieve this recognition in the festival’s 23-year history.

Just as 2023 came to a close, de Witte secured her fourth consecutive title as the World’s Number 1 Techno DJ by DJ Mag.
