When Radio 1’s Danny Howard brought his Lockdown Linkup series to the world in 2020, he set about teaming up the world’s leading dance producers for a collection of collaborations. Among those was ‘Whisper’, the product of long-time friend of Defected Dennis Ferrer and South London trio Disciples, who made a powerful and perhaps unexpected transatlantic partnership. Quickly catching the attention of Simon Dunmore, ‘Whisper’ was signed to Defected, who now commission red-hot remixes from heavy hitters of the house scene. Chicago’s man-of-the-moment John Summit takes on the assignment with ease, injecting the record with a hefty dose of club muscle that moves away from the ethereal sound of the original. A record that would comfortably sit in the Windy City star’s high-energy DJ sets, there is no doubt this mix will take this lockdown heater into its next phase, as dancefloors reopen across the globe.
