Listen to a special SHAPE mix by Norwegian DJ and producer Charlotte Bendiks, which she prepared in anticipation of her upcoming live performance at CTM festival on January 27. The mix was broadcast by Resonance Extra.
The title of the mix is A Walk In The Morning, and it is comprised of the music she has been listening to in the mornings before working on the preparations for her live show at CTM.
Charlotte Bendiks is a DJ, producer, and positive thinker. Her sets fuse classic house, disco, African groove, and Latin-inspired beats, depending on the day, but no matter what the permutation, they guarantee buckets of sweat and high doses of euphoria.
She grew up in Tromsø, the techno capital of Norway, and became interested in electronic music at a young age. She started DJing in her early twenties. From 2007 to 2009, Charlotte organized the underground house party Moist, which combined music with video and light installations and extended for hours after normal clubs closed. She also produces her own dark, sensual house music and has collaborated with such artists as Lena Willikens and Daniel Maloso. Her first solo release, the Afterhours EP, was put out in January 2013 by Trømso’s own LOVE OD Communications, which then went on to release 2014’s Aurora EP. The label described the latter EP as “dancefloor-focused productions of classic house minimalism, much like an echo of a Chicago that has been abandoned and moved to become a ghost town deep into the Arctic.”
On January 27, she will be playing a live set at Berghain’s Panorama Bar as part of the CTM Festival 2017.
