Listen to Tong & Spoon's "Muchness"; Pete Tong Gig Sunday at Set

​The man, the myth, the legend: What is there left to say about

Pete Tong

to anyone remotely familiar with dance music? In the pantheon of international DJ gods, he's pretty much Zeus (though Paul Oakenfold may beg to differ). He's the guy who, through

his forever-running BBC Radio One program

, anoints the world's hottest dancefloor tracks every week.

He's the DJ so ubiquitous and well known, that he inspired a new bit of Cockney rhyming slang back in his homeland. ("It's all gone Pete Tong," meaning, it's all gone wrong; "wrong" rhymes with "Tong," and so on. Oh, look it up.)

And though every couple of years dance music journalists proclaim the era of the superstar DJ definitely over, Tong's position at the top of the heap is so solidified that we like to think he laughs at these pronouncements from mere mortals. Saturday brings him, in a truly WMC-quality booking, for a headlining gig at Set, fresh off an epic series of his own Wonderland parties over the summer in Ibiza.

Amid all that, he's also released a new track as Tong and Spoon called "Muchness." Listen to it below, and get the link to download it on Beatport.
