Rising global duo SOFI TUKKER links up with Chicago phenom John Summit on new single “Sun came up“
The new single “Sun Came Up” is a rapturous house track with intricate Spanish guitar work, made complete by Sophie’s breathy and ascendant vocals. In short, “Sun Came Up” feels like levitating.
Sofi tukker says: “We made this song when we were deep in quarantine, while we were dreaming about the sun coming up, so to speak. We were dreaming about dancing with people again. It’s about being together, in darkness and in sunshine. And about being able to recall that experience over and over again in our imagination and memory. It’s both nostalgic and hopeful. Looking back and looking forward to that one perfect vignette of togetherness.”
And the duo adds: “We’re fans of the dynamics of his music and really love what he added,” SOFI TUKKER say about the collaboration. “He’s a joy to work with–he works really hard and is a perfectionist like we are, constantly thinking about how to make the song better.”
The pair first connected with John after they started playing his tracks during their wildly popular daily livestream DJ sets during quarantine and their friendship evolved. This month they hit #1 on the Beatport chart with John and Vintage Culture’s remix of SOFI TUKKER‘s GRAMMY nominated single “Drinkee.”
John Summit shares: “When SOFI TUKKER reached out to me to incorporate my club-focused sound to go along with their amazing songwriting it ended up turning into an extremely unique record that I’m so excited to be a part of. I’ve been a huge fan of them for years due to their distinctive songwriting style along with their amazing chemistry so I’m stoked we were able to create something special together.”
The song was inspired by the group’s first Animal Talk party and quickly became one of their most beloved singles. “Purple Hat” joins their single “Best Friend” in reaching over 100 million Spotify streams.
