Bonafide Chicago house legend Gene Farris and rising tech-house producer John Summit have joined forces to bring winter sizzler Bass Go on Sonny Fodera’s Solotoko imprint. Although Gene has heavily championed John and his sound, which has seen him release Guest List and Seen It All via Gene’s Farris Wheel Recordings label, Bass Go marks the duo’s first track together and it certainly doesn’t disappoint.
An absolute weapon of a production, Bass Go is armed with monstrous vocals which builds up to a hefty bass climax before entering another stratosphere intertwined with funky drums that’ll undoubtedly have everyone grooving along.
A self-confessed music obsessive hailing from Chicago, Gene Farris first made his name spinning acid house, disco and classic Chicago house while also fronting numerous warehouse parties. Having spent the best part of the past three decades pushing musical boundaries with releases across celebrated labels Relief, Dirtybird, Viva Music and Defected, his abstract take on electronic music comes from rigorously refining self-taught skills. No stranger to an epic club heater, the Farris Wheel label boss’ discography includes Play On Snatch!, LOL and Move Your Body.
Looking to his home city, Gene’s collaboration with fellow Chicagoan John Summit proves that regardless of the time or sound, the talent emerging out of the Chicago music scene is unmatched. Paving the way for the next wave of the tech-house sound coming out of the US, multi Beatport charting producer John has been turning heads and pricking ears with his versatile DJ sets. Firmly setting his roots in the tech-house scene, John has already scored releases such as Viva Voce, I See You, Afterhours EP, Detonate and more through tech-giants Repopulate Mars, Toolroom, This Ain’t Bristol and Dirtybird.
Ready to show the world what they’ve been cooking up, Gene Farris and John Summit’s Bass Go will see the duo close this decade out on a high.
