Hot off releases on prolific labels such as Dirtybird Records and Repopulate Mars, Chicago's John Summit lends his talents to This Ain’t Bristol for his new two-track EP perfectly titled Afterhours/Addiction. Inspired by late night warehouse parties and sunrise DJ sets, this enigmatic new EP seamlessly fuses together cutting edge house music and fresh techno beats. 

Full of sharp snares and poignant vocal chops, the title track of the EP, “Afterhours” delivers powerful synth work and radiating energy that steadily builds throughout the track. The second track, "Addiction," ferociously utilizes oscillating bass, impressive vocal chops and laser-like synths to showcase Summit's production prowess. Powerfully capturing the essence of the afterhours scene and warehouse parties, John Summit's modern take on the classic sounds of Chicago house focuses on the most important element in dance music -- making crowds dance.

Summit had this to say in reference to the release of his new EP: "I made these two tracks for the late-night underground as I have been playing lots of really cool afterparties lately. I wanted both tracks to still have my signature tech house sound while also going a bit darker and weirder than I normally do. I had a ton of fun making the synth build in Afterhours' as I wanted to make something that gave the crowd a chance to breathe before going back into the groove. With ‘Addiction' I wanted to make a rolling tech house stomper that keeps building energy throughout while having a hypnotic vocal that keeps the listener intrigued. Both tracks have been huge for me in the club so I’m so happy to finally release them!"
