Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Marvinello (feat. Martin Wilson)
Michel Cleis & Klement Bonelli
Rebirth Records
I actually made an earlier version of this an Essential New Tune at the end of 2014 - we get our records early here on this show! It's a reworking of Marvin Gaye’s classic ‘Got To Give It Up’. They couldn’t clear that sample so they completely re-performed it, and it’s been building on the underground for ages now and really been popping in Ibiza over the last six weeks.
This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen Again and forward to 33 mins here.
