Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Fort Romeau
This track comes from Fort Romeau and it’s a brand new single called Pablo. Fort Romeau is Michael Greene, who has released records on Running Back, Live At Robert Johnson, and Ghostly International. He's originally from Chester, studied in Brighton and was part of La Roux's touring band many moons ago. When he pops up with new music it's always worth checking out, and this is really special. I haven't been able to stop playing it this week so now it's your brand new Essential New Tune.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen here.
