Turkish-Italian DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist Carlita (real name Carla Frayman) announces her signing with Ninja Tune via imprint label Counter Records and shares her long-awaited, fan-favourite new single “Time”. Known for her electrifying in-demand DJ sets, as well as her “penchant for lush, hypnotic productions that balance depth, toughness and a cool sort of beauty” (Billboard), Carlita’s fusion of classical music with electronic elements creates an eclectic sound inspired by Turkish psychedelia and rock, making her stand one of the most exciting new voices in electronic music. 

On joining the Counter family – where she follows a legendary lineage of peers like ODESZA, TSHA, LP Giobbi and Maribou State – Carlita says, “Ninja Tune is such an iconic label for me. I grew up listening to Coldcut, Amon Tobin and Bonobo. I love the diversity of sounds, the crossover and futuristic approach and I feel so honoured to be part of such an amazing artist roster”.

Carlita’s DJ sets are a captivating blend of live and ethereal soundscapes, showcasing her diverse musical background and talent. In recent years she’s performed at high-profile festivals including Cercle, Tomorrowland and Burning Man, plus iconic London venues Printworks and Village Underground. 2024 is undoubtedly Carlita’s biggest year yet as she’s set to perform at Coachella, CRSSD, EDC and Parklife Festival, along with a run of shows at Circoloco in Ibiza and additional global tour dates. 

Carlita has seen stellar support from the press, having graced the cover of DJ Mag in October 2023 along with further support from Billboard, Office Magazine, Dazed, Document Journal, Notion, Beatportal, FLAUNT and more. 

Carlita has showcased her talents as a producer through her own EP’s ‘Bon Trip’ and ‘Life’ on the iconic Life and Death label, “Cash for Love” on Circoloco Records and remixing the likes of label mates DJ Seinfeld, as well as dance titans RÜFÜS DU SOL, Diplo & Damien Lazarus, Chloé Caillet, and more. Outside of remixes and collaborations, Carlita has been championed by many key figures in the dance world including, Keinemusik, Vintage Culture, Mochakk, and TSHA among many others. 

Among her biggest supporters and closest collaborators is DJ Tennis who has ascended Carlita's work from the very beginning. Most recently, the duo have formed the captivating Astra Club. Their artistry has left a lasting impression on audiences, crafting unforgettable experiences for clubs and festivals with their unique blend of creativity and curation.

Known for her keen interest in fashion, Carlita has collaborated with brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Nodaleto, FENDI and Les Benjamins, and has been featured in prominent fashion publications including FLAUNT, Office Magazine, NYLON and Document Journal. Carlita also hosted an official fashion show during NYFW for her multi-sensory party concept Senza Fine. 

With the announcement, Carlita shares highly anticipated new single, “Time”, an equally moving and hypnotising track that quickly gained popularity amongst her fans. “Time” has become a staple in Carlita’s DJ sets, appearing as the closer to her lauded Tomorrowland set and becoming the most replayed moment online. Since then, she has been teasing the single, sparking further demand from fans for its official release. “Time” acts as a first look of a fuller body of work that will cement Carlita’s exceptional production and songwriting abilities.

“Time” is out now on Counter Records, with more new music coming soon.
