Coming off a performance at the IMS Ibiza earlier on the day, last night’s episode of Pete Tong’s ”Essential Selection” saw the radio host veteran kick the Ibiza season off live from a studio on the White Isle. In a bid to set the tone for the entire season, Tong delivers an Ibiza opening special, featuring a host of the most hotly tipped amongst this year’s essential Balaeric gems as well as a flashback on the past few years on the island. The likes of David Guetta, Erick Morillo, Feed Me, Soul Clap and more leave Tong a voice mail to present their own favorite picks for the Ibiza season.

Calvin Harris joins Pete live in the studio to talk Rihanna and MYNC’s forthcoming Fly Eye debut before the legend that is Carl Cox peeks in for a live 15 minutes of fame, revealing some details about his ascent to the status of a legend and more. Also, Funkagenda’s ‘FYSB‘ makes its premiere on the show ahead of a further spin of Porter Robinson’s ‘Language‘ and unreleased material from Technasia, Azari & III, Pnau, Sugardaddy, Mosca, DifferentME and many more.
