With a whooping 20 years of experience in bringing clubland the hottest in electronic dance music, Pete Tong has undoubtedly become a legend within the walls of radio show hosting. Still quite stunned from the massive Swedish House Mafia take-over a month ago, the England-bred radio host is back to unfold another two hour marathon of the newest dance music around. Opening up with the recently previewed Funkagenda remix of Midnight Run and Swedish House Mafia’s hotly tipped Antidote collaboration with Knife Party, last night was indeed off to a great start as the first stage also covered Justice’s newly released Helix single, Camorra by Nicky Romero and a year-old production from the 17 year old prodigy from France – Madeon.

As if not choosing Avicii’s acclaimed Levels as this week’s essential new tune was enough glory for the Swede’s this week; the well-reputed Alesso was brought in for a 15 minutes of fame, during which he featured his recent collaborative effort with Sebastian Ingrosso, Calling, the remix on Good Love, Nillionaire and an effing beautiful oldie from Coldplay.

Speaking of Coldplay – the Fedde Le Grand remix of Paradise that is due out on Monday via Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records had its premiere spin and the Eric Prydz remix of Circles returned for a second appearance on the glorious Essential Selection. Also, High Contrast joined in to talk us through his ultimate 24 hours.
