Pete Tong returns to kick off May month with another exceptional episode of the Essential Selection show on BBC Radio 1. Celebrating Bank holiday, Tong blasts through a well thought-out selection of heavy-hitting club gems and groovy and considerably more soulful jams alike. This week’s show starts off with Porter Robinson’s ‘Language‘, a fresh Qulinez remix and a hot off the press Siege remix for Elton John and Pnau, setting the mood ahead of Julian Jordan and TV Noise’s forthcoming single ‘Oxford‘ makes its debut and further air-time for Nicky Romero’s remix of ‘I Don’t Like You‘ and Flashmob’s brilliant ‘Need In Me‘.

Set for release on May 14, Thomas Gold takes the spot of this week’s second essential contender with his new remix of ‘The Wave’, while Infinity Ink’s upcoming ‘Infinity’ single for Crosstown Rebels gets chosen this week’s essential new tune.

Miguel Campbell joins in on the phone to tell us a bit about his past and his forthcoming artist album for Crosstown Rebels, Pryda’s ‘Allein‘ makes its premiere on BBC Radio 1, and rapidly growing UK duo Disclosure are featured in this episode’s 15 minutes of fame, talking us through their sound, their first Ibiza booking and more. Also, new music from Grimes, Alex Tepper, Nic Fanciulli, Eats Everything and many more.
