It’s all go­ing right for a night of Pete Tong

Evening Express (City Final) - The Guide - - MUSIC SCENE -

ADANCE mu­sic le­gend is com­ing to play Aberdeen this week­end. And his gig will form part of a huge party to cel­e­brate his 20 years in dance mu­sic. It can only mean one thing – Pete Tong is com­ing to town. Re­garded as a Bri­tish in­sti­tu­tion, Pete has clocked up two decades be­hind the decks of Ra­dio 1 where he has be­come the sta­tion’s face of dance mu­sic. Born in Kent, Pete started broad­cast­ing The Es­sen­tial Mix in 1991. Over the years there have been many huge names to grace his decks – from a live es­sen­tial mix from Joris Voorn, Carl Craig and more re­cently, a beat­box mix session by Beardy­man, this eclec­tic show con­tin­ues to high­light the best DJs from across all gen­res. To­day the slot is con­sid­ered the prime-time plat­form for elec­tronic mu­sic and be­ing played is proof for many an as­pir­ing DJ-pro­ducer that they’ve “ar­rived”. He’s played it all – from acid house to funky house. And his sizzling sum­mer par­ties in Pacha are the high­light of the Ibiza club­bing calendar. He will play The Fo­rum on Satur­day, from 10pm.
