Pete Tong Taps Thomas Jack As iHeartRadio Mix Host

BBC Radio 1 legend Pete Tong has named leading tropical house DJ Thomas Jack as a resident mixer for his Evolution Radio program on iHeartRadio.

In speaking to Billboard, Tong referred to the DJ’s well-respected mixes as a “modernist take on what a DJ might look like in the future.” He continues, “[Jack] really embraces DJing in its purest form–the music he’s choosing, the order he’s playing it in, and the eccentricity of what he’s playing.”

Jack’s relationship with Tong extends back to January, when the Aussie signed with The William Morris Endeavor, of which Tong is a partner, and continues with Jack’s recent signing to Parlophone Records, the home of Tong’s FFRR imprint.

Though no word has been given as to when Jack’s first iHeart Radio mix will debut, Tong is already looking forward to the future stating that BBC Radio 1 should “consider for a residency as his story builds.”
