Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Tempest (Adam Port Europa Remix)
Sinnbus Records
This weeks Essential New Tune is something that has grown and grown on me. I've been playing this out a lot and week after week it seems to build and get an incredible reaction. It's one of those honest and earned Essential New Tunes, it really does work and I think we'll be playing it all summer. It comes from a German/Finnish trio called Lessons, the track is called Tempest but it's all about the Adam Port remix. Check this out...
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 26:15 mins here.
