Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Forms Of Love
Adam Port & Alan Dixon
out now
"Following hot on the heels of their recent Keinemusik album, Send Return, Keinemusik's Adam Port teams up with the virtuoso of all things harmonic, Alan Dixon. This has been a secret weapon for the Keinemusik crew for the last few months. You might have seen it cropping up on socials, at parties they've held in Berlin and over the opening weekends of Ibiza. I teased you with it as the last tune of the 'Hot Mix' in last week's show, but I can now play it in all its glory."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33.55 here.
Label: Daniel Rérat, Keinemusik
