Putting a label on the type of music Tourist makes is difficult, just because he doesn’t seem content to stick to one genre. Like chillwave? Check out “Placid Acid.” Need more bass? Check out “Your Girl.” Regardless of the label you slap on them, his tracks are tied together with their airy, stripped-down arrangements. They’re lovely. That’s really the only “genre” description you need.
Tourist has a new EP due out December 3rd titled Patterns. Wait…December? God, that’s forever from now. If you, like me, hate waiting, then be sure to catch him live at Hard Day of the Dead next month.
Check out the single “Together” below. It’s a housey, dancey track, which is a little bit different for Tourist. I love the way he plays with buildups and break downs. Yes, it’s EDM, but it’s not a banger. Avicii will not be dropping this track in his sets…Disclosure might. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs might. Lemâitre probably should.
