NEWS FROM INSIDE THE ELECTRONIC
DANCE MUSIC INDUSTRY

Welcome to the first weekly INDUSTRY INSIDER – created by IMS, MIXMAG and RECORD OF THE DAY. We've teamed up to create a digest of global electronic industry news, across the full spectrum of the genre, to help you get straight to the stories that matter. Initially a free service, INDUSTRY INSIDER will follow the template of Record of the Day but focus on what’s relevant for this genre and demographic. It's long overdue…

Comment
"Now, this actually came in just before the show started, so it's a last minute appointment and something a bit special from Kelly G. It continues that kind of DJ Koze vibe from last year. lt's called Feels Good, I hope you love it as much as we do. It's loopy, it's infectious and it's this week's ENT."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 33:22 mins here.
