De Witte's long-running club, radio and festival brand is becoming a record label at last
Charlotte De Witte's KTNX has gone from strength to strength over the past few years. Launched originally as a club night at legendary Brussels nightspot Fuse, KTNXT has gone on to tour all over Europe, establish a radio show, host stages at Tomorrowland and Awakenings and, late last year, host the first-ever techno event to be held at the immense Sportspaleis in Amsterdam.
And now De Witte is taking the obvious next step for her succesful brand, with the announcement of KNTXT, the record label. We're told the first release will be in September, though no details of said release have yet been made public.
Announcing the news, De Witte said: "It’s been humbling and exciting to see KNTXT grow as a party concept and radio show over the past five 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. I’m looking forward to sharing the sounds of my favourite 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 other KNTXT news, 16 November will see the party return to the Sportapaleis, with De Witte playing a three-hour headline set and welcoming Chris Liebing, DJ Dax J and Imogen as her guests. Before that, there will again be KNTX stages at this year's Tomorrowland (21 July) and Awakenings (16 October).
