Patterns EP

The UK producer released 4 track Patterns EP on Method Records this week.

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.
