Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
22 Aug 2016
It comes from a Liverpool-based producer who has spent a lot of his time in Ibiza over the last couple of years. We love his vibe and we've been supporting his music. He put together a great after-hours mix for us a few months back. This is his new track, it's coming out on Circus. This is Kydus and it's a big bass line. It's called Boomtang.
