Pete Tong's Essential New Tune

"I have been featuring this in my mixes all month, so it's only right that the entire EP gets an ENT award. Inspired and dedicated to their time as residents at Circoloco in Ibiza this summer. It's a new EP on Keinemusik from Rampa and &Me. This is Garden from &Me and it's this week's ENT." 
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33.30 mins here.
