Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
The Day I Met You (feat. Solomun)
Keinemusik, &ME, Rampa & Adam Port
out now
"2021 has been an amazing growth year for the Keinemusik crew. They have been an underground scene secret for so long, but things are changing. This is the killer cut from their brand new album, Send Return, which was released last week. The track is called 'The Day I Met You' from &ME, Rampa & Adam Port, aka the Keinemusik crew, featuring the one and only Solomun. It's epic, it's dramatic, it's melancholic, and it's this week 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 32.21 here.
