Following a whopping 20 years as a radio host for prime-time BBC Radio 1 listeners, Pete Tong certainly knows a thing or two about the world of Electronic Dance music. With just a week left till another highly anticipated edition of the Miami Music Week, Tong made sure this week’s Essential Selection was a bit more out of the ordinary, showcasing a selection of hotly tipped contenders for the Miami season. Kicking things off with Swedish House Mafia’s newly released ‘Greyhound‘, an unreleased, new remix from Madeon for Martin Solveig’s ‘The Night Out‘, Third Party and Cicada’s ‘Feel‘ as well as new music from Cedric Gervais, Zedd, Pnau and Groove Armada, last night’s show collected, in true Pete Tong fashion, pretty much the latest and greatest from every corner of modern Electronic music.

Continuing, David Guetta and Nicky Romero’s much talked about collaborative effort ‘Metropolis‘ made a second appearance after last Friday’s premiere just before Pete Tong deemed Daddy’s Groove’s tribute to Whitney Houston alongside Little Nancy as this year’s ”first real pool anthem of the summer”. Chris Lake joined Pete in the BBC studios in London for an exclusive mix, revealing that he’s got a new studio album coming up as well as playing some new singles, out of which his collaboration with Tommy Trash has been promised a remix from Deadmau5 himself. Also, Rustie peeks in for a 15 minutes of fame.
