With merely two weeks left until Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso are due to execute their second ever Swedish House Mafia take-over of Pete Tong’s prime-time show Essential Selection, the long-time radio host continues to flaunt as another, carefully prepared two-hour episode of the show has surfaced. Kicking things off with David Guetta, Nicky Romero and Sia’s soon to be released Wild One Two as well as world radio premieres of Otto Knows’ Million Voices and Qulinez Troll, last night’s show was most certainly off to a great start. John Dahlback’s long-awaited Life, formerly titled Song Saved My Life, was chosen this week’s essential new tune, Erick Morillo joined in on the phone to talk us through the Sympho Nympho project, his collaborative effort alongside X Factor star Alexandra Burke and give his upcoming single with Eddie Thoneick and Skin, entitled If This Ain’t Love, a spin.

Also, Mark Fanciulli’s forthcoming release on Saved, Sacrifice, saw it’s premiere and Subb-An joined in for a 15 minutes of fame to tell us all about his well-oiled baselines, new releases and more.
