Comment
I teased you with a bit of this last week, and when I played it out it just slayed everyone and put them all in a great mood. It's the coming together of Basti Grub, Eric Volta, with the one and only Timo Maas. It's called We Were Riding High and is very much my message for the summer. Turn this up, a deserved Essential New Tune.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen here.
