Kicking his 21st year as a greatly appreciated radio host of prime-time show Essential Selection on BBC Radio 1 off, Pete Tong unveils the first Essential Selection in 2012. Besides from giving Swedish dynamo Alesso further, well-deserved recognition by opening the show with his latest single release, Raise Your Head, last night’s Pete Tong show featured was clearly dominated by a widespread string of world exclusive spins. Covering Dirty South, Thomas Gold and Kate Elsworth’s follow-up to Alive, titled Eyes Wide Open, the Sympho Nympho remix of Erick Morillo’s new single with Alexandra Burke, Madeon’s yet to be released Icarus, Afrojack and Shermanology’s long-anticipated Can’t Stop Me Now, the synth-filled Basto take on Alive among many others, it’s safe to say 2012 was off to a great start as far as the successful Essential Selection show is concerned.
