Tong continues to present his essential new tune of the week and feature guest mixes from EDM¹s biggest stars, while showcasing the best music from the biggest and most influential DJs, artists and dance music producers in the world. 

"I¹m very excited to be teaming up with Beatport and extending my national show to two hours," stated Tong. "It¹s an important step in bringing more great electronic dance music to a mass audience and I¹m sure the start of a special relationship with a great strategic partner."

"For ten years, Beatport has been at the center of electronic music culture, providing a unique destination for DJs and producers to not only buy and sell their music, but also build their careers," said Clark Warner, Beatport¹s Executive Creative Director. "We are thrilled to partner with the industry¹s foremost tastemaker, Pete Tong, and with Premiere Networks and iHeartRadio, to bring dance music to an even larger audience and provide even more opportunities for DJs and producers to reach new fans."
