The highly-regarded Pete Tong has rapidly become an icon and sort of a legend in the industry with his impeccable Essential Selection and Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 every Friday night. He has been serving the industry up with a whooping 20 years and 1040 episodes of loyal service. A celebratory toast goes out to our electronic dance music guru in chief for his amazing performances over the past couple of years and we’re certainly no strangers to the fact that he’s one heck of a guy when it comes to discern the hottest tunes out there. Last night we were served up with a total of 12 hours of acclamation of the man himself. A top 20 countdown of the hottest dance tunes were presented as well as a bunch of live sets from Martin Solveig, Alex Metric, Groove Armada and others. The first time in 16 years, Pete Tong hit the decks for an own Essential Mix and last but not least, Rob Da Bank pokes around in Tong’s extensive record collection to take us on a musical journey throughout his 20 years.
