Ahead of All Gone Pete Tong at Control Leeds, the BBC Radio 1 dance legend Pete Tong has released an all encompassing 3 CD compilation charting all things House.
The compilation gently moves through the ages with classics such as Inner City – Good Life, Mr Fingers – Can You Feel It, Marshall Jefferson – Move Your Body (The House Music Anthem), 808 State – Pacific State and more featuring on CD1 before developing into the productions of Sasha, Orbital, Nightcrawlers, Robin S and more on CD2 and then finishing up with the likes of Groove Armada – Superstylin’, Duke Dumont Feat. A*M*E – Need U (100%) and the groundbreaking Get Lucky by Daft Punk Feat. Pharrell Williams on CD 3.
This not only takes you through house music but is also a little personal insight into the life of Pete Tong. A true ambassador of house music in the UK, Pete has been pushing the sound through his radio slots for over 20 years and these 60 tracks represent a little bit of the legacy that he is building for himself within UK dance music.
Check out this 8 minute mini mix of the album and buy your copy now on iTunes or Amazon.
