true IMS Industry Insider | Welcome
Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Famly Records
out now
This week’s ENT is from a brand new act based in Bristol. They are Alfie and Billy Goffey who have been working together for the last three years putting together music and I’m pretty damn impressed. We gave you a preview of this on Something For The Weekend last weekend and it just sounded so good we thought we'd give it to them. This week’s ENT is Juggle from Cousn.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 35:22 mins here.
Management: Ed Karney & Isla Fabinyi, Grade MGMT / Max & Jordan, Method Music 
Live: Lucy Putman, Coda
