Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
So this is a bit of a secret weapon that I’ve been playing out at my shows over the last couple of weeks and I’ve just got the all clear to play it on the radio. This is something new, something special, coming out of the southern hemisphere. I can’t tell you any more, or I’ll have the men in white coats chasing me, which means I’m teasing you, which is just as well because it’s called Teser by Teser.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32:00 mins here.
