Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Dogma 1
Kölsch & Michael Mayer
I had this guy on the phone last week to talk about the launch of his new label IPSO. We also premiered the other side of this track, called Dogma 2. It's been done with Michael Mayer, the founder of Kompakt Records and they made the entire tune using just one instrument, an old Yamaha synthesizer. The series will continue in the same vein with more guests, each picking just one instrument. The man played one of the first Ibiza parties of the summer last Sunday at Sankey's opening party. We're talking about Kölsch, and Michael Mayer with Dogma 1 is deservedly this week's ENT. 
This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32:00 mins here.
