Following last week’s major Swedish House Mafia take-over, Pete Tong returns to his fellow BBC Radio 1 to continue his remarkable Essential Selection show. Not only was last Friday all about the Swedish trio, but this week’s weekend kick-off opened up for the announcement of the news that have been teasing us for months. Acclaimed like no others, Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso are preparing themselves to host their very own shows in Madison Square Garden, New York on December 16th and the legendary venue of the National Milton Keynes Bowl Arena in London on July 14th 2012. Also announced last night was the fact of an emerging live album, entitled One Night Stand, released in December and told to be fronted by their long-awaited remix on Coldplay and the new single collaboration with Knife Party, named Antidote, which is hereby getting its very second exclusive radio airing.

Also serving our aural cavities last night on BBC headquarters were Dirty South and Those Usual Suspects’ tremendous Walking Alone, Norman Doray’s refined disco output, Kalifornia, Nervo’s new single with Afrojack and Steve Aoki, We’re All No One, and Chuckie’s mighty follow-up to Let The Bass Kick In Miami, entitled What Happens In Vegas.

On behalf of Chris Lake, this week’s essential new tune is his very next single release. Also, T.E.E.D talks us through his ultimate 24 hours and Oliver $ joins in for a 15 minutes of fame.

  • Its DJ Mehdi – Signatune (T.Bangalter Remix) not Lucky Boy ;)

    God bless him.

  • RIP DJ Mehdi…

    About the SHM news, think they hyped it a bit too much actually.. Althought i really like that an album is coming

  • Don’t forget it’s a live album, so just like downloading a live-set online

  • So the tracks will only be released live recorded??

  • Totally off-topic but I wonder if someone knows anything about Pryda – Latitude? Will it ever be released? Is there any rip out there which is better than the ones on youtube etc? He played it more than 2 years ago and still nothing, weird in my opinion, it could be a huge hit. Maybe thats why he keeping it to himself.

  • John: ‘Latitude’ is not a confirmed track name and there is no current release info on the track I’m afraid..

  • vad hände med den osläppta singeln av Daft Punk som skulle släppas härom helgen?

  • The link is broken.
