When Radio 1’s Danny Howard brought his Lockdown Linkup series to the world in 2020, he set about teaming up the world’s leading 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 made a powerful and perhaps unexpected transatlantic partnership. Quickly catching the attention of Simon Dunmore, ‘Whisper’ was signed to Defected, who now commission two red-hot remixes from heavy hitters of the house scene. Up first, John Summit takes on the assignment with ease, injecting the record with a hefty dose of club muscle that moves away from the ethereal sound of the original. Up next, Dennis Ferrer protégé Nasser Baker steps up, the New Jersey native going full throttle with an electrifying bassline, spine-tingling synths and a looped whisper that lends to the original’s hypnotic quality.
