true IMS Industry Insider | Welcome
Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Save My Life
Benny Mussa
Ministry of Sound
out now
"Benny Mussa are underground DJs, producers and longstanding friends with their roots going all the way back to the very birth place of the UK acid house scene. The guys met during the '90s whilst promoting and playing some of the biggest parties in the UK at the time. That led to residencies in Ibiza in the early '00s and a non-stop love affair with house music ever since. This track has been going viral on DJ feeds. It's been getting a lot of love during the summer from Keinemusik and Purple Disco Machine. There is just something very, very right about it. It's a goosebump tune." 
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 37.35 here.
