Listen to Charlotte's exclusive cover mix and read her talk us through the selections below.

1. The Black Dog ‘Nothing Ever Changes’ (Dust Science)

“I always love to start my start with an ambient track. It’s perfect to set the mood.”

2. Shadowax ‘Ochen’ (Trip Recordings)

“I love the vibe of this track. Shadowax’s EP recently got released on Nina Kraviz’ Trip Records and the entire EP is really strong.”

3. Heerhorst ‘We Fall’ (Octopus Records)

“In the life we knew, we live, we love, we fall.” A very stripped-back track with a simple vocal line and some acid elements. Exactly what I love about techno music.”

4. Chris Liebing & Charlotte de Witte ‘Liquid Slow’ (KNTXT)

“This one speaks for itself. 'The ‘Liquid Slow’ EP is the very first EP that got released on my own imprint, KNTXT. We’ve been working towards starting my own label since the start of my career so I’m very proud of this. The second track on the EP is called ‘In Memory’, and both tracks are collabs with Chris Liebing.”

5. Robert S (PT) ‘We’re Talking About Acid’ (unreleased)

“I discovered Robert S a while ago and have been a fan of his work ever since. This track is particularly cool. I love the acid line.”

6. Drums Theory ‘Last Paradise’ (Etruria Beat)

“This track has a super dramatic/cinematic part in it. It might a bit too over-the-top, but that is what I actually like about it as well. Let’s add some drama!”

7. Re:Axis ‘Rise Within’ (Planet Rhythm)

“I included this track because it felt like the perfect way to bring some tempo and power to the mix. It adds drive.”

8. Shlomo ‘Brother’ (Reeko remix) (Taapion Records)

“I love love love the vocal elements in this track!”

9. Nico Moreno ‘Violent Methods’ (unreleased)

“I’ve been playing a lot of Nico Moreno’s stuff lately. Stripped, fast techno.”

10. UBX127 ‘Tr Momenth’ (Figure)

“Beautiful loopy techno. Nothing more to say.”

11. Manuel Di Martino ‘Impact’ (Suara)

“I played this a lot during the summer. It’s one of my favourite recently released tracks on Suara. Manuel Di Martino is one to follow.”

12. Stef Mendesidis ‘Cyber Document’ (Klockworks)

“Recently out on Klockworks, Stef Mendesidis is really killing it with this track.”

13. March (ARG) ‘Fool Toom’ (Chané remix) (Myphyst)

“This adds some more aggression. I wanted to create a mix that would represent a night out. As time is passing, the energy level rises.”

14. Noir ‘Psychosis’ (Noir Music)

“For the final track we’re slowing down a little and adding some melodies as the mix draws to an end”
