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…

Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Lost Desert & Amari feat. Adomas
Tale & Tone
This comes on a new label that’s been put together by Hodge and Lee Burridge. Their new imprint is called Tale and Tone. This tune was massive at this year's Burning Man. Hodge and Lee are old time friends and have built All Day I Dream together, but this project represents a collection of their wide ranging tastes. Not restricted to one sound, we love this track, it’s Lost Desert and Amari featuring the vocals of Adomas, this is ‘Hunter’ and it is this week's Essential New Tune.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 31.45 mins here.
