Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Sébastien Léger
Lost & Found
out now
"This week's Essential New Tune comes from a guy who I think is a bit underrated. He is a genius in the studio. He loves his analogue kit and after a relatively quiet spell, he is very much back with a bang. It’s the brand new track from Sébastien Léger called Lanarka and this is going to massage your ears, it’s divine."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 27:49 mins here.
