Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Hungry Music
We’re going to go down to the South of France and reconnect with the Hungry Music crew that brought their music onto the radio a few years back. They’ve been fairly quiet over the last six months, but one of their stars, N’to, is back with a killer. This is his new single, it’s called Carrousel, this week's Essential New Tune.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32:00 mins here.
