British born DJ Pete Tong is getting ready to release a new album. Tong, who works for BBC Radio 1 in the UK will be putting together a compiled sic of house music and classics in one disc, entitled The Pete Tong Collection.
The album will feature dance music from the last three decades with 60 of the leading tracks from that period being featured.
Tong, who hosts programmes such as Essential Mix and Essential Collection on the BBC, says that this is the right time to be releasing an album such as this.
“And remember where we were when we first heard these life-changing anthems. The music hasn’t gone away and its influences have only spread further, with the sound crossing over into almost any genre you’ll hear in 2013,” he told Resident Advisor.
Tong has his own record label FFRR Records and also performs in nightclubs and at music festivals across Europe.
The former resident of the Pacha Club in Ibiza is one of the most recognized DJ’s in Europe.
