Chicago native John Summit (aka John Schuster) seems to be getting brought up more and more these days not only around the city, but across the U.S. and international venues alike. Reinforcing the old phrase “age is just a number”, the youthful Summit has already graced the decks at legendary Chicago clubs such as Spybar, The Mid & Soundbar, while continuing to refine his already developed class of productions. Remaining versatile, with styles ranging from American house to Euro tech and techno, has allowed this talent to fully blossom into a DJ capable of controlling any and all dancefloors.
Not only passionate about DJing, John’s relentless drive in the studio has commanded releases with noteworthy labels Toolroom, Psycho Disco, Sinden’s Houseline, Country Club Disco, Perfect Driver and Audiophile; as well as grabbing the ears of many of his chief inspirations, including Mark Knight, Lee Foss, Gene Farris, Billy Kenny, George Privatti, Golf Clap, Treasure Fingers, Sinden and more.
Having only released music for a little over a year now, the self-taught youth has spent countless hours dedicated to taking risks in the studio and learning the many nuances of production, creating a clear confidence that bleeds through each track. John Summit’s modern take on the classic sounds of Chicago house and techno continues to keep the focus on the most important element in dance music – making crowds dance.
