Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Things We Might Have Said (feat. Cari Golden)
Renier Zonneveld
Stil vor Talent
out now
Sometimes ENTs come at me from record companies or out of studios from DJs when they're not even finished. Other times, I just go to a record store, buy them and think "this is rather special." And that is the case with this Renier Zonneveld and Cari Golden track. Released via Stil vor Talent, it's called Things We Might Have Said and it's a bit large.This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33:10 mins here.
Label: Stil Vor Talent
Live: Robert, Gem Bookings / Chris, Stil vor Talent
