Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Days Gone By (Camelphat remix)
Dirty Vegas
New State Music
out now
"Quite often I get handed tunes and I’m not allowed to play them on the radio for all sorts of reasons, like when they go up on streaming services and when they get released. We have had this in the record box for a couple of months now, it’s been absolutely smashing it and am so happy I can play it on the radio at last. This week’s ENT is an amazing revival, courtesy of Camelphat, of the classic Dirty Vegas tune Days Gone By."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 29:58 mins here.
