[Reblogged – Mixmag.net] The Lab NYC is Mixmag and Smirnoff Sound Collective’s weekly afterwork party where we stream the best American and international DJs from the intimate space connected to our Brooklyn office. This Friday, Mixmag welcomes Charlotte De Witte and Ledisko for a special Turbo Recordings showcase.
Founded in 1998 by Tiga, the Montreal based imprint of Turbo Recordings has established itself as a leading outlet for techno, electro, and house. Having helped launch Tiga’s career during its formative years, the label also played a critical role in the success of acts like Chromeo, Proxy and Azari & III among others. In more recent years, Turbo has continued to supply quality dancefloor focused music, releasing material from JoeFarr, Duke Dumont, Randomer, Gesaffelstein and Charlotte De Witte.
Representing Turbo Recordings in The Lab NYC will be Charlotte De Witte, a talented Belgian producer who delivers a dark, hypnotic and edgy motif touching on various forms of techno. Her debut ‘Weltschmerz’ EP released on Turbo in 2015 introduced her brooding style, while she followed that up with her ‘Sehnsucht’ EP the following year and was a standout on the label, showcasing the scope of her sound with six distinct tracks. She is one of the brightest young talents in the scene today and there is still much to look forward to as her career blossoms.
Also representing Turbo on the evening is label manager Ledisko, a Montreal-based DJ who is the youngest label manager that Turbo has had since its inception.
Following her set at The Lab NYC, Charlotte De Witte will head over to Schimanski for a set alongside Secret Cinema and local favorite Maŕa. Purchase tickets here.
Friday’s Turbo Recordings showcase will be presented in conjunction with Mixmag’s Label Of The Decade Poll. Vote here
