Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Adam Port & Stryv
out now
"As the Keinemusik crew move around the world with their cloud and their solo gigs, they're always teasing you with new tunes on their socials, and the ones that really pop get released. That's happening right now in the shape of the new Adam Port solo tune. Teaming up with Stryv from Los Angeles, although they actually met in Kreuzberg in Berlin, this has summer anthem written all over it."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32.20 here.
