Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Take A Chance (Kölsch Remix) (feat. Little Dragon)
Future Classic
If you’ve been listening to this show over the past month or so, you’ll be very familiar with this. We’ve talked about it becoming an Essential New Tune and now we’re officially endorsing it. As remixed by last week's host Kölsch, I kind of thought I couldn't look back and not have this on the list. One of the greatest remixes of the year so far, I’m sure it still will be a couple of years in. This is Flume Take A Chance featuring the wonderful voice of Little Dragon's Yukimi, as remixed by Kölsch.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 31:10 mins here.
