This guy must surely be one of the biggest DJs in the world. After all, how many others have had a film named after them? Granted, the film – It’s All Gone Pete Tong – was absolute rubbish, but he remains pretty unique in that respect (though the idea of Hugh Jackman as a vampire-hunting Van Buuren appeals to our perverse sense of humour).
Anyway, old Tongy’s set at The 400 Club this week will showcase his wealth of DJing experience, including a five-year stint at Pacha in Ibiza (he left to open his own night at Ibiza’s Eden club) and 19 years as the host of a beloved BBC radio show, initially known as Essential Selection and then, later, simply called Pete Tong. Both have kept him right up to date, so expect a thick chunk of the best new house tunes on the night.
Pete Tong plays The 400 Club on December 10.
