Flashing back on a year of great success for the Electronic Dance Music scene, Pete Tong collects some of his favorites from the past 12 months for a ‘Best of 2012′ edition of his Essential Selection show.

Jumping between tracks from across the Dance music spectrum, Tong highlights artists such as Joris Voorn, Alesso, Swedish House Mafia, Todd Terje, Shadow Child, Calvin Harris, David Guetta & Nicky Romero among others in his eclectic recap of one of the biggest years in Dance music to date. Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Luca C and Ali Love have the honors of nabbing the prestigious title of the Essential New Tune of the Year with their acclaimed Hot Natured release, ‘Benediction‘ before signing things off with a dark and groovy Hot Mix and One More Tune from Joe Goddard.
