Pete Tong Picks Miami Music Week’s Anthems
With Miami Music Week underway, Pete Tong has selected the tracks he thinks will be getting a ton of play by the world's leading dance music talent. As the most famous BBC Radio 1 host, Pete Tong is certainly the authoritative voice of the industry, naming his "essentials" on his widely-listened radio show. Therefore, these are the tracks that you should definitely be getting acquainted with, as they will likely be amongst some of 2015's most supported tracks.
One place you can expect to hear some of these tracks is the All Gone Pete Tong Pool Party, featuring special guests Hot Since 82, Duke Dumont, Skream, Deep Dish, Thomas Jack and more. For those who aren't lucky enough to be partying it up in the hot Miami sun to this impressive collection of DJs, you can bring the spirit of Miami to you with the All Gone Pete Tong & Gorgon City Miami 2015 compilation, now available on iTunes.
Pete Tong's eight selections come via Entertainment Weekly, and feature a variety of different house sounds and styles. Check out the tracks in the playlist above, and see what the dance tastemaker had to say about each selection in the Entertainment Weekly feature below.

“Already sounding like this years ‘Bullit’— emotive instrumental from this Deep Houser.”
“Playing on the big stage at Ultra this year and already responsible for the festival anthem ‘ID,’ the Norwegian maestro drops another killer song from his debut album featuring hype singer Parson James.”
“This is very much the U.K. sound right now. U.K. garage influenced poolside anthem.”
“My partners in crime on the All Gone Miami album (defected) drop a wicked exclusive. Big bassline for the Florida sunshine.”
“The original is one of the great unsung hero’s from the last few years. Never tire of hearing it. The ultimate beach party tune now gets a pumping pool-party remix.”
