Raving George is the stage name of Charlotte de Witte – a young DJ who was born in Ghent, Belgium. She has been performing as “Raving George” since 2010. This rising star is only 23 years old. She was born on the 21st of July in 1992. When a teenager, she literally fell in love with the Techno and Electro music that she heard in the nightclubs of Ghent. By the age of 17, she already managed to show how talented she was as a DJ. Her Techno sets, that can be described as a bit aggressive in nature, attracted the attention of the well-known promoters in Belgium. As a result, she was invited as one of the main DJs to play sets at Pukkelpop and Tomorrowland festivals.
Today this immensely talented female DJ is considered to be the priestess of Belgian dancehalls. When crowds on the dancefloor listen to her tracks, it is as if they become hypnotized by the unforgettable mixture of the Electro and Techno music playing. Charlotte creates her own world of beats, synths and strange sounds that will make it hard for you to just stay still.
De Witte says that she likes the darkness and melancholic mood of the Techno music. She adds that she doesn’t understand “happy” music that’s very often played during festivals and other music events. From her point of view, dark music is more emotional. When playing her sets, Charlotte aims to tell a story that people will remember. She says: “Of course, the reason for why people come to a club is because they want to relax and have fun. What I’m trying to achieve is get them fascinated with the song while entertaining them”.
Charlotte has already taken part in the parties and festivals in the US, South Africa and across Europe. She still lives and works in Belgium. She has her own night radio show called “Playground”. The show is broadcast on the leading Belgium’s radio station “Studio Brussels”.
In 2014, Raving George presented to the public a number of her tracks. They marked the beginning of a new age of electronic music.
The year of 2015 marks a new stage in her career. This was the year when she became popular all over the world. In collaboration with one more young DJ talent, she released the track entitled “You’re Mine”. More than 15.000 copies of it were sold in Belgium. The track was certified Gold.
Popularity of her tracks and her unusual music attracted the attention of various labels who are willing to help her release the next EP. Charlotte’s really busy. She’s got her own show on the radio, plans concerning her future EP and tour that she’ll soon go on.
