In anticipation for Swedish House Mafia to air their second second take-over of this sought-after and prestigious prime-time BBC Radio 1 show next week, Pete Tong made sure the trio’s task of excelling BBC’s long-running household host would be more than just a challenge as he once again collected a wide range of tracks from multiple genres across the spectrum for another successful show. Kicking proceedings off with the mighty Axwell mix of ‘In My Mind‘ and John Dahlback’s yet to be released ‘Life‘, it’s safe to say last night’s show was off to a great start. As the night lingered, Adrian Lux and Lune’s ‘Fire‘ saw it’s first play on the show, the new Wolfgang Gartner remix for Miike Snow was given a world premiere spin and Avicii and Nicky Romero’s longed for effort entitled ‘Nicktim‘ saw itself get a whopping two plays on last night’s episode.

Also, the mentee of Afrojack, R3hab, joined Tong for a 15 minutes of fame to talk us through his sound, his many remix duties and more, the new aspiring duo on Size Records’ artist roster, Qulinez, had their debut single ‘Troll‘ chosen as this week’s Essential New Tune, Gregori Klosman made his second appearance on the show with his remix for Room For Happiness, Fritz Kalkbrenner had a new single of his premiered, Mark Fanciulli’s ‘Sacrifice‘ was given another spin and much more.
