Tourist is the latest addition to the burgeoning roster of Disclosure affiliated label, Method Records. Marking his second release of the year, following on from his Tonight EP, Tourist continues his prolific development, expanding his already extensive range and breadth of melody and song structure. With the announcement of his new EP his shift to a more progressive and intricate understanding of his role as producer has lead him to working with vocalists for the first time, featuring MNEK and newcomer Jacob Banks.
New song Together finds Tourist at his most dance orientated, an approach he hinted at on his work earlier in the year. Opting to work with sampled vocals, the balance struck between the soulful vocal contributions of his collaborators exemplify his work as a forward thinking producer alongside many of his contemporaries.
