Aired live from Ibiza’s unequal pre-party spot – the glorious Café MamboPete Tong unveils a new edition of the Essential Selection show on BBC Radio 1. As the Ibiza season, and the closing week, has sadly come to an end, Tong flashed back on a successful Summer for clubland and the electronic dance music scene last night.

Opening up with the brilliant 2Night single from Eric Prydz, for which a vocal mix is yet to be released, last night’s episode offered the regularly peerless dynamics of electro, disco, tech, house and progressive – everything within EDM, really. Debuting on the large radio station this week was the latest single from Kaskade and Rebecca & Fiona, entitled Turn It Down, as the long-awaited Swedish House Mafia and Knife Party single, named Antidote, comes back to make a third appearance on the radio show. Chris Lake’s next single release, Sundown, out from his Rising label and the unflagging Joris Voorn edit on The Tide by Mark Fanciulli were also serving the Café Mambo crowd and cyber space last night.

Laidback Luke joined Pete to talk us through his recent escapades, feature Alesso’s Nillionaire and his own Natural Disaster single with Example and reveal what’s next. Also, a short interview with the legendary Sasha and this week’s essential new tune fell into favour of Jamie Jones’ remix of Hungry For The Power which just recently was crowned the track of the season during the Ibiza DJ Awards 2011.
