Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Hate ft Patrick Cash
white label
I really rate this guy and the music he's making but I've actually been sitting on this for a few weeks now. Seth Troxler dropped it during his set with Miss Kittin at the IMS Dalt Vila gig in Ibiza a few weeks ago, he looked at me and said "this is definitely one of the tunes of the summer" and I agree with him, just for the bassline alone. KDA and Hate, this weeks 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 31:50 mins here.
Label: White Label 
Management: Steven Braines, The Weird and the Wonderful
Live: Roman Trystram / Maria May, CAA
