EP Review: Charlotte de Witte – Rave on Time

It feels cruel, or perhaps even perverse, to serve up an homage to the lure of the dancefloor when we can’t reach that hallowed space. However, life must continue and techno stops for no one. Not when you have the relentless energy, and even more pulverising tempo, of Charlotte de Witte.

The DJ’s previous release was a wistful one, blending monk chants with her modern style. On this EP, the nostalgic step back is more recent. Those of us with a few miles on the clock are instantly transported to sweaty nights, emerging friendships and too much we don’t need to relive ever again! Youngsters can just love the tunes.

Rave On Time is Charlotte’s third EP of 2020, and a casual reminder that some good has come out of this God-forsaken year. Not much, but some, and this is a collection of songs we’ll all hopefully hear together someday.

Rave On Time is out now on KNTXT.
