Compute (feat. Ali Love)
When Stars Align
out now
"So the multi-platinum DJ and production duo CamelPhat are back with their new album 'Spiritual Milk', out now. It includes collabs with the likes of London Grammar, Sohn, Noel Gallagher and Ali Love, who features on this track. I've been playing it out for some months in clubs and am happy to be able to play it for you now on the radio. We've teased it before. It was the Hottest Record for Danny Howard on the Dance Party. They have been ruling it at Pacha with their residency this summer in Ibiza. Right now, this week's ENT is 'Compute'."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33.53 here
