As an innovator, Pete has taken the world of Podcasts by storm and

Pete will undertake his forth season of 'Pure Pacha', Friday nights @
Pacha Ibiza this summer. 'Pure Pacha' combines musical quality and
glamour, with aspiration and escapism. 'A 'wonderland' for grown ups
who don't want to grow up just yet.....!' as Pete likes to put it. The
success of his residency in Ibiza will now see Pete bring his own blend

Last year saw Pete get into the studio and finally fulfil his dream of
making his own music. He has recent collaborated with Chris Cox, James
Talk, Paul Harris & Jay P and has an ambition to produce an artist
and compose a film score in the future.
Pete's success as a broadcaster, clubland DJ and music industry
tastemaker is his ability to create a balance between credibility and
commerciality and it not afraid to drop the hits on the decks. "People
forget it's entertainment," Pete explains. "I wouldn't be doing this if
I couldn't champion new music, but a mix is the key. And it's supposed
to be fun."
The dance market has changed a lot since Pete started, but one thing
remains the same, people still want to go out and have a good time.
"People love music, make no mistake about that, whether and how they
buy it right now is one thing, but people still want to party...it's
our job to come up with new parties, new nights, new venues, new themes
to keep the scene fresh and exciting." says Tong.
In the meantime, the ever-active Pete still sees his vocation as he did
when he started out, playing other people's records to get an audience
dancing. "We need to constantly remember why people want to come to
clubs - which is simply to have a great time and feel the music." With
Tong behind the decks, there's little worry of failure on that score.
