John Summit, Vintage Culture re-up Sofi Tukker’s ‘Drinkee’ with burning tech-house spin
John Summit hit the nail on the head when branding his co-remix alongside Vintage Culture for Sofi Tukker’s Grammy-nominated 2016 original “Drinkee” as “the biggest track of [his] sets this summer,” despite having “Make Me Feel,” “Better Than This,” and “Witch Doctor” accredited to his name. Both Dancing Astronaut’s Artist to Watch in 2021 as well as the Brazilian all-star have both readily bloomed into two of the most in-demand names throughout house music’s ever-widening landscape, and while they’ve already claimed shared possession of this year’s summer house crown, neither are letting up in the slightest as the season reaches its peak tide.
When John Summit, Vintage Culture, and Sofi Tukker all joined together to offer the rework atop Day Trip’s aptly labeled Deep End stage during July 4th weekend, the elated crowd that stood before them knew exactly what they were getting themselves into. Holding onto Sophie’s Portuguese-directed vocals, the duo’s “Drinkee” update livens up the toned-down, tropical single from more than five years ago, bringing out a burning tech-house fever that only will enable Summit and Culture’s version to find its way into any and every house set now that it’s officially untethered.
