Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Let Me Take You Back
Diynamic Music
out now
This week’s Essential New Tune comes from Moscoman, who has put out some damn cool underground music over the past few years. He’s back with a brand new 6 track EP for Diynamic and it's this one that’s been doing the business for me over the last couple of months. Channelling a lot of old Detroit melodic techno, this week’s Essential New Tune is Let Me Take You Back.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 30:35 mins here.
