Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Fallen Enemies
Final Request
out now
"It goes in the direction of one of the most sought after track IDs of this summer. From an EP of the same name on Diynamic. This has been a real highlight of label boss Solomun's DJ sets recently. I feel this summer Solomun really experimented, really tried to change things up and push some boundaries to the left, to the right. He was experimenting with a lot of different styles in his sets. This one has a particular urban flavour. We've been dying to play it for you on the radio. We can do it now. Turn it up."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33.10 here.
