Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Your Mind
Adam Beyer & Bart Skils
18 Jun 2018
Essential New Tunes are usually brand new fresh out of the box. However, occasionally they are tracks that we feel retrospectively have to be acknowledged for the battles they are winning on the dance floor and for the service they have given to some of the best DJs all over the world. This has been growing and growing throughout the summer and we have played it many times on this show, but it’s time now to name it an official ENT because I think it’s going to continue to get bigger and bigger all the way through to the end of the year. It is the collaboration between Adam Beyer and Bart Skils on Drumcode, Adam’s label, and it is, of course, the awesome Your Mind.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again here.
