Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
My Way
Andrea Olivia
Play It Say It
out now
"This week's Essential New Tune is something that has earned the right because I’ve been playing it out and getting a crazy reaction to it, it just works. It comes from Ants resident and main man Mr Andrea Oliva. It's coming out on Play It Say It, The Martinez Brothers label with Seth Troxler. It is a weapon, it is a tool, it has a hook, and it’s called My Way."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 34:18 mins here.
Label: Play It Say It 
Management: Vicky Taylor, The Night League
