true IMS Industry Insider | Welcome
Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
My High (feat. Aminé)
Disclosure & slowthai
out now
"I am happy to say this week's ENT is taken from Disclosure's third album Energy due for release next month. Guy and Howard have always wanted to work with rappers but previously didn't have a way of contacting them living in Reigate and being super young when they started out. The forthcoming album is also set to feature Mick Jenkins, Channel Tres and Common, but here they are teaming up with Amine and slowthai for an explosive new track called My High." 
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32.18 here.
