Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Monkeytown Records
out now
So this week's ENT is something that's actually been around for a couple of weeks. We played it before, but I just thought, when we get to the end of 2016, and we look back at the ENTs of the year, I couldn't live without this tune. So it's getting the award of the ENT this week. It comes from their recently released album III and is a strong, strong single called Running from Moderat. There's a stack of amazing remixes coming, but this is the original, it's on Monkeytown Records. 
This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 30:50 mins here.
