British DJ Pete Tong, a longtime visitor to the U.K. compilation album chart via his mix collections, is now the champion of the artist countdown. His Classic House set (Polydor/UMC/OMOD) with the Heritage Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley, moves 6-1 on the new survey, as Ed Sheeran's “Shape Of You” and “Castle On The Hill” (Asylum/Warner Music) start a third week at Nos. 1 and 2 respectively on the Official Charts Company's singles list.
Classic House, which features orchestral adaptations of classic dance tracks such as “Right Here, Right Now” and “Lola's Theme,” is in its ninth week on the survey, and spent two weeks at No. 2 before falling to No. 6 last week. It assumes the top spot by finishing 3,000 combined units ahead of the La La Land soundtrack (Interscope/Universal), which rises 3-2, changing places with Little Mix's former No. 1 Glory Days (Syco Music/Sony).
