Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Pop Culture (Joris Voorn Remix)
DJ Dozia
This got an incredible reaction when I debuted it on last week's show and then again when I played it out last weekend, so it just has to be an Essential New Tune. Quite an incredible remix from Joris Voorn and DJ Dozia on Ovum, an amazing job done by the label. 
This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen Again and forward to 29:00 mins here
