With Ultra Music Festival in full swing, Pete Tong dedicates this week’s episode of the Essential Selection on BBC Radio 1 to the star-studded Miami Music Week. Showing off a well thought-out mixture of vocal bangers and soulful tech- and deep-house offerings, this Miami special is further testament to Pete Tong’s diverse, musical preferences. Kicking things off with the now Tong-championed Pnau revamp of Elton John and a brand-new Avicii original called ‘Last Dance’, UMF was not the only show dominating the airwaves last night. Carl Kennedy and Cheyenne Tozzi’s Tiësto-premiered ‘Once Upon A Time‘ makes another appearance just before Sander van Doorn’s latest single effort ‘Inside’ and the hotter single off the second volume of Mark Knight’s Bullets EP series get their respective first plays.

Dirty South’s sought-after remix of Miike Snow’s ‘Devil’s Work‘ gets chosen this week’s Essential New Tune, Eats Everything joins the show straight out from Miami and Riva Starr provides with a special guest mix in true Snatch fashion. Also, Michael Woods’ ‘Airborne‘ gets a spin before BBC residents Annie Mac and Heidi talk us through what the Miami season means to them and last but not least, the recently surfaced and already acclaimed ‘Language‘ by 19-year-old Porter Robinson makes it’s debut.
