Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Bout That
Golf Clap & Eyes Everywhere
Toolroom Records
This comes from a duo that I hooked up with in Detroit recently when I played at the brilliant The Works club, they are Eyes Everywhere & Golf Clap. I guess this is a bit of a retort from the US side to the likes of Patrick Topping and wAFF, very much a US take on a UK sound, this is Bout That.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33:30 mins here.
