Hailing from a city steeped in house culture, Chicago’s John Summit has quickly become the hottest name in dance music following the release of ‘Deep End’ in June 2020 which became the longest-running Beatport #1 of the year, was named Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune, and drew support from BBC Radio1’s Annie Mac, Danny Howard, and MistaJam before making the Radio 1 main playlist.
Paving the way for the next wave of house music out of the US, Summit has already scored notable releases with label-giants Defected, Repopulate Mars, Dirtybird, and Solotoko. Catalogue highlights include his Beatport overall top 10 single “Forgotten One”, top 5 house single “Summertime Chi” with Lee Foss & Hayley May, and ‘Stimulate’ EP that reached #1 on tech house releases. His forward-thinking productions have also been supported by industry heavyweights of the highest order such as Diplo, MK, Fatboy Slim, Lee Foss and Solardo. With over 1.5 million monthly Spotify listeners and counting, as well as securing Beatport’s top-selling artist across all genres for three months of the year, there is no questioning John’s production prowess.
John has also performed at many of North America’s signature dance venues, including noteworthy shows at Halcyon San Francisco, PRYSM Nightclub Chicago, Sound Nightclub LA, Celine Orlando, Magic Stick Detroit and more. In addition to making waves throughout the North American club scene, John is looking forward to leaving his future imprint both internationally and on the coming festival seasons.
