Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Dead End Thrills (Patrice Baumel Remix)
This is really a people’s choice, a DJ choice, it’s a track we've played many times on the show, but we truly believe it deserves the big recognition. I think it’s going to figure in the year-end charts for sure. It’s Patrice Baumel’s wonderful, enchanting remix of Cubicolour’s Dead End Thrills.This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 30:40 mins here.
