Radio host veteran Judge Jules retired from his weekly show on BBC Radio 1 last week, but Essential Selection maestro Pete Tong is on his 21st year for BBC Radio and still going strong. With the hype surrounding this year’s summer festivals building up, Tong is back in true Essential Selection fashion to present us the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music.

Sander van Doorn’s longed-for, new original with Mayaeni, entitled ‘Nothing Inside‘, makes its second appearance while the downright cool Pnau revamp of an Elton John classic is evidently still etched on Tong’s brain. Norwegian duo Carl Louis and Martin Danielle’s latest release, ‘Black Eyes & Blue‘, gets the approval of BBC’s hotly tipped radio host ahead of a premiere spin of Tiësto’s new single with Wolfgang Gartner and Luciana, ‘We Own The Night‘, and another play for Porter Robinson’s ‘Language‘.

Also, Pete sets aside some time to shed further light on Alesso’s well-received Essential Mix from two weeks ago and Cadenza’s very own Robert Dietz presents this week’s hot mix.
