Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Personal Space
11 Dec 2015
This week's Essential New Tune comes from Yotto, a rising star from the Anjunadeep camp. He's put himself about with a couple of useful remixes, and I'm really impressed with his new EP. Take a listen to the rest of the show to hear another track from him in the Hot Mix. This is Personal Space, I hope you like it as much as I do.
This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 29:20 mins here.
