When Radio 1’s Danny Howard started his Lockdown Linkup series in 2020, he set about teaming up various dance producers for a collection of collaborations. Among those was ‘Whisper’, the product of long-time friend of Defected Dennis Ferrer and South London trio Disciples, who have made an unexpected transatlantic partnership.
Catching the attention of Defected’s Simon Dunmore, the track was signed to the label, who have now commissioned two remixes from within the house scene.
Up first, John Summit takes on the assignment, injecting the record with a sound that moves away from the ethereal sound of the original.
Next up, Dennis Ferrer protégé Nasser Baker steps up - the New Jersey native going full throttle with a bassline, synths and a looped whisper that lends to the original’s hypnotic quality.
It’s out 1 October.
