Charlotte Von Kotze will be DJ-ing pioneering musicians who use new technologies.
Half Parisian and half German, with a few years spent in Berlin, Charlotte has been living in New York since 2009. From working for the French Music Export Office, or for Promoter Giant Step on acid jazz, world music music, hip hop, or electronic shows involving amongst others Gilles Peterson, and Q-Tip, Charlotte has been Music Supervisor for VICE’s branded content for 4 years. She has also worked on HBO’s “Random Acts of Flyness”
Her international background has naturally inspired her to collect and dig for eclectic music. She has a bi-monthly radio show on The Lot Radio in New York called “Brooklyn English,” featuring traditional and contemporary from around the world. She’s interviewed guests ranging from Buchla synth pioneer Suzanne Cianni, Music Producer Clap! Clap!, Can’s Malcolm Mooney, Jazz keyboardist Jason Lindner, to Ghostly international’s founder, Sam Valenti, and more. She often blends these influences in DJ sets at various New York venues, (Home Sweet Home with Collective Disco Tehran, Donna, Achilles Heel, Black Flamingo) and at record fairs.
