“Fade Out”: John Summit Delivers Shimmering Original, His First Since “Where You Are”
John Summit is throwing more gas on the fire after the release of his undisputed song of the summer, "Where You Are."
Titled "Fade Out," Summit's latest release marks the producer's first original since his Hayla-assisted hit. Though he's been previewing it in his DJ sets throughout the summer, he dropped the news on fans that the track would be arriving with less than a week's notice, perhaps a reflection that he continues to remain undaunted even by the prospect of filling his own increasingly large shoes.
A collaboration with MKLA, "Fade Out" boasts the singalong-style qualities that have come to define Summit's meteoric rise. The "Side By Side" songstress delivers on her part with angelic falsettos, a memorable hook and thoughtful, introspective verses. Meanwhile, Summit's production melds his characteristically churning grooves with his own adaptation of a tremolo-style chorus, which adds something distinctly fresh and untapped to his recent discography.[embed]https://youtube.com/watch?v=ScCqgbx9u18[/embed]
The new single notably also marks the end of an era for Summit's Off The Grid Records imprint in its current form.
Following a public dispute with an electronic music events promoter who laid claim to the "Off The Grid" moniker back in 2015, Summit ultimately agreed to rebrand his label, a process which appears to now be in progress.
Summit's next move will see him making his festival headlining debut in his hometown of Chicago at ARC over Labor Day Weekend. The house music star features on a massive lineup alongside Black Coffee, Tale of Us, Peggy Gou, Fatboy Slim, Hot Since 82, Adam Beyer and many more.
