true IMS Mixmag Industry Insider | Welcome
Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Throwing Stones
Freeform Five & Ali Love
Spinnin' Deep
This is going in the direction of a track that’s already received a 10/10 from Mixmag as one of their tunes of the month. It’s a collaboration from Freeform Five and the man who is the lead singer of Hot Natured, we’re talking Ali Love. This is out now on Spinnin’ Deep, it’s kind of an answer back record to a Calvin Harris album, we reckon. This is Throwing Stones.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32:00 mins here.
