It's fair to say that superstar DJ Pete Tong's history is intertwined with the history of Acid House and electronic music itself, with a career that mirrors the story of dance music over the last 25 years. A true renaissance man, Pete has never been about one thing and 2011 represented a significant milestone, with his show on Radio 1 holding a special 12 hour takeover on the station to celebrate his 20 years on their airwaves, as well as his glorious return to Pacha, Ibiza, last summer with his residency, "Pure Pacha presents All Gone Pete Tong". At the heart of all of this, is Pete's ability to push and nurture new talent - from Guti and Benoit to Maya Jane Coles and Deniz Kurtzel - there are few electronic artists who haven't had the "Pete Tong Push", and that's a good measure of how wonderful this legend is. There's never been a better time to start your year all Pete Tong!
