true IMS Industry Insider | Welcome
Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Track 10
This week’s ENT is a track we raved about last week. I’ve been playing it out for the last month and it’s been absolutely killing it. UK legend Sasha is back with this dancefloor monster, simply called Track 10. I’ve got no other information about when it’s coming out, but it is a world exclusive. This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 34:15 mins here.

The previous Industry Insider incorrectly listed Pete Tong's Essential New Tune. Guy Gerber's Secret Encounters featured on August 26 and can be heard here. For further details contact Leon Oakley at label Rumours or management Milo MitchemMaren Brombeiss at Three Six Zero.

  • Fabric, one of the UK's most well known nightclubs, is to close permanently after its licence was revoked by London local council Islington, due to what it described as a "culture of drugs" at the venue. (BBC) However, Fabric will appeal the decision and will be backed by the Night Time Industries Association's Fund For Fabric campaign, which will seek to raise up to £500,000 to help with the club's legal fees. (MixmagSee News and Comment for reactions.
  • This week's INDUSTRY INSIDER is unsurprisingly dominated by the name FABRIC. In a quite shocking week for global electronic music, our entire industry has been rocked by the news that the iconic London club has been closed by Islington Council. The story will unfold in many ways but do be sure to click to the lead story in Comment, Opinion and Analysis by the UK's Independent newspaper. We have had messages from colleagues from all over the planet, shocked by the decision, and perhaps this one article will go some way to explain the complexities and agendas going on behind the scenes. Fabric's Keith Riley and Cameron Leslie have done a great job defending their club and culture, but now the next stage of the battle really begins. IMS, Mixmag and Pete Tong are fully behind the attempts to re-instate Fabric but also to ensure that the genre's reputation isn't one again damaged by outside forces failing to understand the efforts by reputable promoters to educate whilst they entertain. #SAVEFABRIC #SAVENIGHTLIFE.
