This is our story...

UK producer, Tourist, has announced his sophomore North American tour today along with a release date confirmation for his anticipated EP, Patterns, which will be out April 22nd on the freshly upstarted Monday Records here in the US with a UK/Europe release on Disclosure’s Method Records. Incorporating years of classical training, Tourist, aka William Phillips, exhibits a graduated sound that transcends dance music, which we find especially evident in the single from the Patterns EP titled “I Can’t Keep Up.”

Featuring yearning vocals from Will Heard, Tourist’s “I Can’t Keep Up” exemplifies a perfect song progression; building more and more momentum from the track’s poignant introduction eventually erupting into a beautiful, vivacious peak laden with bright synths and the emotional repeated vocal, “Show me love.” With an exciting live show in tow and (hopefully) an EP full of tracks like “I Can’t Keep Up,” Tourist is looking to have an ace year in 2014.
