John Summit updates Parachute Youth’s ‘Better Than This’ in latest release
John Summit returns to the dance floor with his new modernization of Parachute Youth‘s “Better Than This.” Released just in time for Memorial Day playlists, the new track continues to solidify Summit as one of Dancing Astronaut‘s Artists to Watch in 2021. The original “Better Than This” came by Parachute Youth back in 2012; the track effectively launching the Australian duo’s career. Now, John Summit has taken the track for his own unique spin nearly a decade later. Speaking on having Summit remix the song, Parachute Youth’s John Courtidis said,
“To see the song that started my music career come out again after its first release a decade ago, is truly exciting and can’t wait to see where it goes a second time around!”
Parachute Youth’s Mat KVon also spoke on Summit’s remix of the track, adding,
“This track means just as much to Johnny and I as the day it was first played on triple j here in Oz, ‘Can’t Get Better Than This’ and subsequent releases gave us a touring career and fans worldwide who still message us to this day.”
Summit has been tearing through 2021, releasing his highly-anticipated single “Make Me Feel” in March, as well as his single “Beauty Sleep” back in January. In February, he released a rework of Gorgon City’s “You’ve Done Enough.” Summit will be making his return to the stage this Labor Day Weekend for Chicago’s North Coast Music Festival.
