We're giving you a sneak peak of three tracks from the UK producer's brand new EP
London based producer, William Phillips, is building on the success of his 2013 Tonight EP with a new collection of moody melodies and driving beats that are as fitting for a sunny day as a darkened dancefloor. Patterns is Tourist's first release on Disclosure's Method Records and serves as a statement of intent for this exciting producer.
Standout track, "I Can't Keep Up" features a dark, angsty performance from Will Heard. Best known for Klangkarussell's "Sonnentanz", here the singer delivers an altogether more emotive vocal that, when teamed with Tourist's ever-intensifying beats and atmospheric synths, give the track a razor-edged longing that is a rare find in electronic music.
Premiered on the Annie Mac's Radio 1 show last Friday, the title track features guest vocals by soulful UK songstress and Prince BFF, Lianne La Havas.
"Together" picks up the pace and is perhaps Tourist's most dancefloor-friendly release to date, with a grinding pace paired with luscious synths and an infectious vocal hook.
The EP came out on 20th April and you can get it on iTunes now.
