Comment
"This week it's a world exclusive, a brand new collaboration between the melodic techno dons Adriatique and Marino Canal. It is called Home, featuring the voice of Delhia de France. I've been admiring Adriatique's work for many, many years and I do believe this record will take them to an even bigger audience. I hope you enjoy it, I can't wait to play it for you."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 31.15 here.
