Pete Tong recruits Jules Buckley and Heritage Orchestra for BBC Radio 1’s Ibiza Prom

For over two decades, Pete Tong has served as a top host for the iconic BBC Radio 1 station, with his Essential Mix show. To celebrate 20 years of Radio 1 in Ibiza, the British DJ has arranged a special for Proms, the station’s 8-week summer series of concerts at Royal Albert Hall. Tong enlists in the help of Jules Buckley and his Heritage Orchestra to curate Ibiza Prom, a 1.5 hour set of club classics that honor the island and its affinity for catchy dance music.

As Tong mixes between Fatboy Slim and Eric Prydz, to Moby and Faithless, the Orchestra provides an accompaniment of strings, percussions, and horns. Tong also recruits vocalists Ella Eyre and John Newman to the show, resulting in a mix of fantastic electronic tracks that are boosted by live music elements.
