Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Master and Servant (Goom Gum Remix)
Depeche Mode
"There’s no question it is going in the direction of Depeche Mode courtesy of a Goom Gum Remix of their classic track ‘Master and Servant’. Still no official plans to release this yet, which means you can only hear it on my show, you can spin it again on BBC Sounds as well."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 36:22 mins here.
