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.

Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Triangle Echoes
DJ Seinfeld
This guy often gets talked about as the leader of the lo-fi scene and I was really taken aback when I heard this album, which features three brand new cuts from Seinfeld, including this one. I think is going to take him to a whole new level. This is Triangle Echoes from DJ Seinfeld. 
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen here.
