Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Rabbit Hole (feat. Jem Cooke)
out now
"This week's ENT comes from the Liverpool duo whose popularity has soared in 2019, thanks to some amazing shows, some amazing music and that residency in Ibiza. They’re back with a banger and I’ve had the privilege of playing this out in clubs over the last few weeks. It creates an amazing feeling in a club and it is Rabbit Hole by CamelPhat featuring Jem Cooke."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33.44 mins here.
