EP Review: Charlotte de Witte – Vision

With an output that is as relentless as her DJ sets, Charlotte de Witte is back with another EP, Vision; continuing a run of form that has seen her bowl over audiences around the world. She may be saying goodbye to her Radio 1 residency, but this doesn’t mean we’ll hear less from the Belgian buzz-bomb. It’s not that easy to ditch the Europeans, thankfully. 

The title track races out of the blocks and doesn’t look back. What it lacks in deviation, it more than makes up for in tenacity and determination. “Out of Balance” pushes the tempo further, and there is far more menace in the undertow of the track.

“Unthoughtful” appears twice, once via a Kangding Ray remix, with the original being the shortest song on the collection. It’s also the most enigmatic, a rare pause for breath that offers a lighter, yet murkier, shade to round things off.

Once again, it’s techno with a pulse and soul from Charlotte, and it should propel you on, no matter what type of day you are experiencing.

With a rescheduled show at SWG3 on 28th February 2020, and a touring schedule that is more tightly packed than replacement bus services during the recent storms, this year looks like being another with Charlotte de Witte written all over it.

The Vision EP is released on 17th February 2020 via Figure.
