PETE TONG has been the definitive voice of the electronic music scene for decades, an influencer for generations of electronic music fans around the world. But don’t ever think of Pete Tong as part of the establishment. In fact, throughout his varied and astonishing career, he’s been a catalyst, a genuine agent for change. And it’s all based around a simple yet relentless personal mission: to find great music and talent, and to share it with as many people as possible.

Take the Ibiza Classics project, the globally touring, live orchestral extravaganza that’s seen Tong and collaborators Jules Buckley, taking electronic music to another dimension. Initially conceived as a one-off for the Proms classical music festival in 2015, translating some of the most loved dance music anthems for an orchestra to celebrate 20 years of Radio One in Ibiza, the way that Classics caught the imagination shocked even Pete.

And through dozens of genuinely live orchestral shows (ranging from The Hollywood Bowl to London’s O2 to, inevitably, Ibiza) and three albums (‘Classic House’, ‘Ibiza Classics’ and ‘Chilled Classics’) the project has continued to push boundaries, bringing in contemporary collaborators like Tale Of Us, ARTBAT, Kølsch and Tiësto to remix seminal tracks and exploring the full theatrical potential of instrumentals like ‘Age Of Love’ and even the work of Hans Zimmer.
