A few days ago Pete Tong premiered Steve Angello’s long awaited single “Yeah” on BBC Radio 1. And when I say long awaited, I mean loooong. The first time I heard this track was all the way back in February. I liked it back then, but over the months with the added hype and occasional appearance at festivals I’ve become somewhat obsessed. I’ve always had an unabashed love for the more electro-house and progressive genres and this track perfectly nails the energy and driving beat that makes for club anthems. Soon to be released September 29th on Angello’s own Size Records, make sure to check it out and know it’s name, this is one track thats is going to be heard MUCH more in the coming months.

Pete Tong has decided to let his fans choose which songs will go into his end of the year show on BBC Radio 1. This morning, he asked his fans to answer the following (and provided poll options):
“What were the hottest tunes of 2011? Help me compile my end of year show by selecting you favourites from the list below (or add any you think we missed)”
All you have to do to be a part of Pete Tong’s selection for 2011’s hottest tunes is go ‘Like’ Pete on Facebook (shouldn’t you already?) and take a look at the poll options! Don’t see anything you like? Add your own! Personally I voted for Miguel Campbell’s Something Special, but apparently a lot of people like this dude Avicii, whoever that is…
One of the hardest workers in EDM today, Pete Tong maintains a hectic DJ schedule and dedicates his life to exposing the freshest tracks and emerging talent via his radio shows. This year, on top of his touring festival appearances and residencies at Pacha Ibiza and Encore Beach Club in Vegas, Tong re-launched his legendary FFRR imprint – once home to Orbital, Brand New Heavies, Jay-Z, Armand Van Helden and the man himself – under the umbrella of Warner Music Group.
With one hell of a biography, it seems unsurprising that people have forgotten about Pete Tong’s production talents. This week, the British Dance Music Ambassador released his new ‘Wardance’ EP on Toolroom, featuring remixes from Matthias Tanzmann and Tom Flynn.
