The 14th Exploration has been presented by rising star Noncharlet (aka Charlotte Crocker).
Hailing from Auckland, Charlotte started her infatuation with electronica 14 years ago. After being inspired by New Year’s festival, Alpine Unity in the Southern Alps. She packed up, moved to Christchurch, and started throwing parties with M*A*S*S*I*VE productions.
A gifted pair of CDJ's 50s fell into her lap, which kicked off the journey to becoming Noncharlet.
In 2013 she moved to Wellington to do a music degree and held down a residency at legendary venue Laundry. Ticking off genres, trance, techno, and tech house, while taking inspiration from the likes of Alex Kenji, Sébastien Léger, and Todd Terje, all these ingredients have been brewed and are served up as her current slick deep emotive house sound.
In her own words: "I love watching people dance, this is my biggest influence. I love playing outside, barefoot, feeling a sense of connection, sense of family, this is what drives and inspires me. The music".
Presented here is 1hr40 of bliss, parts driving, parts ethereal, all emotive with a cheeky vocal here and there, this is the soundtrack to your day, as it will go on repeat.
Thank you Noncharlet.
