Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Deep Musique (Rampa Remix)
Pastaboys & Osunlade
This week’s Essential New Tune comes from the Rebirth camp out of Italy. I play this out a lot and it really does seduce the dance floor. I absolutely love records like that, they start off tickling you and at the end of a seven or eight minute journey you are completely and utterly seduced. That is what this tune’s all about. Give it some space, turn it up, stop what you’re doing and enjoy the Pastaboys ft Osunlade, this is the brilliant Rampa Remix of Deep Musique.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32:25 mins here.
