Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Rinse and Repeat

This is a track we first played a few weeks ago and it has been growing and growing in popularity on a number of the dance shows at Radio 1. It comes from New York resident Riton who has really come out with the goods - so much so in fact that this track broke into the Shazam charts last week. It's called Rinse and Repeat and it's this week's Essential New Tune. 
This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 34:20 mins here.
