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
This week’s Essential New Tune is another banger that really has exploded over the last couple of weeks in Ibiza. Solomun fans will know that it’s the track that everyone’s been trying to track down when he’s been playing over the last couple of months, so simple but so effective. There are some early '90s rave days about it as well, it’s by Elax, it’s called Reacktor and it goes off, enjoy.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again here.
