“I Wanna Go” by Summer Heart takes me back to my freshman year of college when I first started discovering electronic music that resonated with me. His music among other artists in the genre like Flume, Disclosure, Petit Biscuit, Purity Ring, etc. inspired a new chapter in my production and taste in music. I saw these artists not as peers but as professionals that I wanted to someday have the opportunity to sit next to. That was the goal.
After a few weeks of talking back and forth with David (Summer Heart) we both agreed that we wanted to work together but preferred to do so in person. Without hesitation I invited him to come stay with us in Chicago for a week so we could do just that. Inviting someone I’ve never met or even talked to over the phone to live with us for a week was definitely a risk but a risk I was willing to take. Even though we had just started talking, I felt like I already knew him through his music. I had a relationship with him that surpassed his physical being. It was spiritual connection that I trusted.
