Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Dawn Patrol Records
out now
"This week's ENT dropped a few weeks ago but is already shaping up to be one of the tunes of the summer and was all over Ibiza's opening weekend. Maz made his debut at Circoloco's opening last Monday and the track is currently at the top of the Afro House chart on Beatport, although really this is Brazil House. He recently delivered a very tasty Hot Mix, where he also made his debut on this show. Hailing from Rio de Janeiro and teaming up with VXSION, this is 'Amana' on Maz's Dawn Patrol Records'."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 36.04 here.
