Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
The Howling
Frank Wiedemann and Ry X (Sofi Tukker Remix)
This special track originally surfaced in the summer of 2012 and there's no question that it's an underground classic. It never peaked but now it's back in circulation with a fresh new mix; a welcome return just in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I never tire of hearing this. It is a deserved ENT. The Howling, from Frank Wiedemann and RY X, Sofi Tukker on the mix. Enjoy! This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 31:50 mins here.
Label: Infectious
Management: Sofi Tukker
Radio: Marty Raviraj, Cool Badge
Live: Meryl Luzzi, AM Only, + Jason Edwards, Coda (Europe)
