Hello from Pete Tong

Pete Tong Pete Tong | 16:13 UK time, Friday, 1 April 2011

It's been a massive week for me getting everything ready for next week's 20th Anniversary Celebrations. On Wednesday evening we recorded 7 amazing acts for the 'tribute session' section of the 12 hour Tong-a-thon. Shingai & Noisette's, Martin Solveig, Kele & Dragonette, Alex Metric, Chase & Status, Chilly Gonzales, Guy Gerber & Groove Armada!

It was an incredible evening and I had to pinch myself to make sure it was really happening. Luckily the geniuses @ BBC Maida Vale recorded it for you all to hear.

I also put the finishing touches to an Essential Mix - my first studio Essential Mix since the opening week of that show back in 1993. I managed to do 2 hours using 95% vinyl. It wasn't the plan but that's the way it turned out and it does have a unique quality about it. I've added loads of mad stuff on top and am very proud of the result - can't wait for you to hear it.

But! There is still one more week to go which means we still have a hot show tonight to talk about featuring Guy Gerber on 15 Minutes of Fame, a wonderful man with a real talent, as well as Chris Lake talking us through his perfect 24 hours. New music comes Miami-style from MYNC, Mark Knight, Axwell, Sharam, Calvin Harris, Guti, Mark Fanciulli, Benoit & Sergio, Pitto, Nadastorm, Stacey Pullen and Marco Carola to name a few, it's going to be big! We are live at 9pm

Let me know what you think of tonight's show!

Pete Tong
