MITS TO HONOR PETE TONG
7/21/21

Dance music legend Pete Tong MBE will be honored with the Music Industry Trusts Award in November. The ceremony will take place in London in aid of the BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins.

The award is in recognition of Tong’s contributions to the music and broadcast industries over his 30-year-plus career. The award will be presented on 11/1 at a gala ceremony in The Great Room of Grosvenor House Hotel. This year marks the 30th year of the MITS.

“I am delighted that the MITS has decided to honor Pete Tong and his pre-eminent reputation in the dance music scene,” David Munns OBE, chairman of the MITS Award committee, said. “For over 30 years he has been a pioneer in his field and is known worldwide for his commitment to build recognition for his music genre.”

Tong is an arena-selling artist, DJ, music producer, A&R, and the voice of BBC Radio 1’s dance programming. He has history at London Records, where he signed Run-D.M.C., and later established subsidiary FFRR, releasing music from Frankie Knuckles, Goldie, Salt-N-Pepa and others.

He returned to the label business in 2019 as President of Three Six Zero recordings, working with established stars such as Paul Kalkbrenner as well as emerging talent Gerry Read and Franky Wah.

In 2008, Tong co-founded WME’s electronic music division alongside Joel Zimmerman, creating one of the first dedicated dance music booking agencies within an agency. He continues to sit on WME’s board.

Past honourees include Harry Magee and Richard Griffiths of Modest! Management, Rob Stringer and Sir Lucian Grainge.
