With merely two weeks left until this year’s Miami Music Week, the long-time radio host that is Pete Tong continues to bring us the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music, presenting us a new Essential Selection, jam packed with hotly tipped contenders for this year’s Miami conference. Kicking things off with Carl Kennedy and Cheyenne Tozzi’s new original as well as Arty and Matisse & Sadko’s ‘Trio‘, last night’s episode was off to nothing but a great start. Continuing with Adrian Lux ‘Fire‘ and the soon to be released ‘Feel‘ by Third Party and Cicada before jumping on to this week’s contenders from Calvin Harris and Tensnake and essential new tune in shape of a brand-new collaboration between Pnau and Elton John, it seems as if Tong just keeps getting better and better at bringing us the best of everything.

Axwell joined the show on the phone straight out of Australia, telling us a bit about his desire to see performances of Jamie Jones and Sven Väth before giving the final version of the new Swedish House Mafia single ‘Greyhound‘ a world premiere spin. As was David Guetta and Nicky Romero’s Miami 2012 contender ‘Metropolis‘. Also, some new music from Wolfgang Gartner, Julian Jordan, Groove Armada, Maya Jane Coles, Nouveau Yorican and many more.
