Reimagined through de Witte’s high-energy lens, this rework is an ode to one of her favorite classics – Listen HERE.
“I’m unbelievably honored to have been able to rework one of the most iconic tracks ever made, once again,” says de Witte. “This one is straight out of Belgium and holds a lot of meaning for clubbers worldwide. Universal Nation has been with me since the very beginning, and I would like to thank Mike and Bonzai for allowing me to touch such a historic track. Coming from Belgium myself, this means a lot to me and my goal was to honor and respect the original while giving it a contemporary twist. It has brought me much joy to play it on stages around the world during these last few months, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.”

De Witte’s innovative ability allows her to seamlessly blend genres and styles that have won her a dedicated fan base and critical acclaim worldwide.
“Universal Nation (Charlotte de Witte Rework)” is the immediate follow up to a massive year for de Witte that saw several professional milestones for the titan of techno. In 2023, de Witte made history once again as the first woman and techno artist to headline Miami’s ULTRA Music Festival’s Mainstage. She also closed out the Mainstage at Movement Festival, making de Witte the first woman to achieve this recognition in the festival’s 23-year history. Just as 2023 came to a close, de Witte secured her fourth consecutive title as the World’s Number 1 Techno DJ by DJ Mag. Alongside her impressive collection of industry accolades, de Witte showcased her extraordinary ability to push boundaries in 2023. This was evident through a dynamic campaign and tour for her “Overdrive” EP, which kicked off in NYC with a pop-up shop at Extra Butter, two sold-out nights at the Brooklyn Mirage and a guerrilla-style surprise performance that shut down Orchard Street for hundreds. Culminating the campaign to Los Angeles, she hosted her first all-night-long, sold-out solo show on the West Coast at the iconic Shrine Expo Hall. Wrapping up the year at Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), she celebrated her latest EP, “Power Of Thought,” with a 3-night KNTXT Turbo Club pop-up, featuring the Charlotada – a daytime hangout in collaboration with Tequila Don Julio.
