Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Calvin Logue
Spinnin’ Deep
This week’s Essential New Tune was officially launched at ADE last week on Spinnin' Deep. It comes from a potential future star, his name is Calvin Logue and it's been championed as a secret weapon by Carl Cox and Adam Beyer all summer. Is it progressive house? Is it 'undercover trance'? I don’t know, but we like it, it puts a smile on our face, it makes me think of ADE and it’s this week’s Essential New Tune. 
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33:59 mins here.
