Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
They Know
Ed Butler
Good Company
out now
Comment
"Now, this is something I started dropping last summer at Blue Marlin in Ibiza. It comes from Ed Butler, and it's taken him a while to sort out the publishing clearances required as you probably recognise it features a loop of an old Drake record. This is They Know on Good Company, and it's this week's ENT."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 29.53mins here.
