Pete Tong MBE announced today that he will be bringing back the world renowned Essential Mix brand to North America for a series of special live events that will kick off with an exciting visit to LA’s premiere dance club Exchange LA. The event will occur on January 22nd and will feature the legend himself – Richie Hawtin.
Undoubtedly, this is a big move for the broadcast, and is a sign of aggression into the North American radio market for what is assuredly one of the world’s premier radio stations and shows.
“The Essential Mix has always been about championing what’s new and next,” said Pete Tong. “So much has happened to electronic music in America in the last five years, and much of that change has been born out of LA, and the community of artists and industry professionals that live here.” – Pete Tong
