Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
[Kölsch in for Pete]I’m extremely proud to be able to present an Essential New Tune, it is Yotto with Marisa. Yotto is an amazing producer from Finland. First of all I’ve got to mention that last week in Miami he drank all of my rider, we were playing the same show and he drank all my champagne, so Yotto you owe me some champagne!
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 34:20 mins here.
