Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Thinking of You (Serge Devant Floor Cut)
Serge Devant & Damiano Ft Camille Safiya
Crosstown Rebels
It's brand new, it's exclusive and remember that you heard it here first. It means another gong is going in the direction of Crosstown Rebels, they're on a roll this year. It's a brand new track from Serge Devant teaming up with Damiano and features the voice of Camille Safiya. The trio previously released a record together called 'Fearing Love' that was the first release on Jamie Jones' Emerald City imprint back in 2015. This is the first time they have got back together since then, it's out on Damian Lazarus' Crosstown Rebels. It's called 'Thinking Of You' and we think it's a beautiful thing.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 31:10 mins here.
