Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra sign with Ministry Of Sound

World-renowned DJ and producer Pete Tong has put pen to paper and continued his thriving relationship with Sony Music. The artist, known for his classic house bias, will release on the major label for his Ibiza Classics project, conducted by Jules Buckley.

Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra achieved a No.1 album with 2016’s Classic House (241,791 sales to date – Official Charts Company) and built an established arena tour around the reinterpretation of club classics. The model created by the DJ and Radio 1 broadcaster became widely imitated in the dance sector. The orchestral take on house music has now been used in several other genres.

Following two further Top 20 releases in the series with Polydor/UMC – 2017’s Ibiza Classics (141,229 sales) and 2019’s Chilled Classics (32,501 sales) – Pete Tong has taken a new path and partnered with Ministry Of Sound for the latest edition.

“We’re hugely excited to be in partnership with Pete,” Ministry of Sound president Dipesh Parmar told Music Week. “We wanted to make his proven classics model work for a new generation and present the songs in a way that could work on a variety of different platforms, which of course included the dancefloor – and I think we achieved exactly that with this new EP.

“We didn’t want to follow the same recipe as previous albums, we wanted to reinvigorate the brand and put together a timeless collection of reimagined Ibiza classics. Pete was completely on board with the idea of the collaboration and, given what a legend he is, there was no surprise at how many artists wanted to be involved – it’s a stellar line up including Becky Hill, Riton, Eats Everything, Vula, Artbat, Franky Wah, Elderbrook, Kolsch and more.”
