And Pete Tong continues to prevail as he kicks off another weekend successfully with the Essential Selection on BBC Radio 1. Opening up with the Axwell edit of the chart-topping Resurrection by Michael Calfan, it’s safe to say last night’s episode was off to a great start as it proceeded with the grooves of Rogerseventytwo’s ‘You Take Me Higher’. Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano’s remake of Tiësto’s Lethal Industry classic got its second spin on the show unlike the Basto remix to Alive by Adrian Lux and The Good Natured and Nicky Romero’s superb Toulouse single which both made their first appearance on BBC Radio 1’s prime-time show hosted by Pete Tong.

One of the aliases of Stuart Price, Jacques Lu Cont, had its new single, ‘Reload’, get featured as this week’s second essential contender and Alesso’s stupendous Raise Your Head single was chosen this week’s essential new tune.

Also, Jack Beats talked us through their ultimate 24 hours, Deetron joined in for a 15 minutes of fame and a world premiere of a brand-new Booka Shade remix on Nero’s ‘Reaching Out’.
