Evolution w/ Pete Tong

It's fair to say that Pete Tong's history is intertwined with the history of acid house and electronic music itself. His career mirrors the story of dance music over the last 25 years and continues to do so. A pioneer who was in no small part responsible for the original explosion of dance music in the late 80s and early 90s, he is widely acclaimed as the 'Global Ambassador for Electronic Music'. As a broadcaster and tastemaker, Pete is prolific. At the heart of all of this, is Pete's ability to push and nurture new talent. From David Guetta and Deadmau5, to Maya Jane Coles and Disclosure, there are few electronic artists who haven't had the 'Pete Tong Push'. "That's a big remit of my radio shows," smiles Pete. "But I don't turn water into wine - all I ever saw myself doing was fanning the flames of something that I thought was inevitable. I'd like to think that by backing the special ones that I can help it happen for these artists...a little bit quicker."
