Globetrotting Belgian techno star Charlotte de Witte, whose career has been soaring for the better part of the past two years, has announced the expansion of her KNTXT party/radio show to include a same-named record label. The first release on KNTXT is scheduled for September 2019.
According to a missive, the imprint’s mission is to stay true to the techno underground and “aims to be an inclusive home that values purity and strength.”
Obligatory press release gush from de Witte: “It’s been humbling and exciting to see KNTXT grow as party concept and radio show over the past 5 years and now I’m thrilled to announce its expansion with the launch of this new label. A label has always felt like the logical and natural next step for KNTXT, both as a place to shine the light on the music that I love and as a home for my own productions.”
She adds, “I’m looking forward to sharing the sounds of my favorite artists, some who’ve been around for a while and others who are just starting out, but all of whom represent a sound that I really love. In time, I hope the label will become a respected breeding ground and safe haven for unique talent, both new and established, as well as the main output for my own material.”
In addition to upcoming appearances at Tomorrowland and Awakenings, KNTXT returns to Antwerp’s Sportpaleis on November 16 with a bill featuring a rare back-to-back headline performance from Marcel Dettmann and Ben Klock, a three-hour set from de Witte and a set from Chris Liebing,
