Praise for TOURIST:
"...the melancholic bass boils over slowly into a euphoric beat that will keep dance floors on both sides of the Atlantic buzzing about this emerging producer-to-watch"NPR

A bold departure from this year's stately "I Have No Fear", London producer Tourist makes his bow on the Disclosure-affiliated Method label by shedding almost every element of his serene slowburners that preceded this new cut. The tune's early momentum cedes to an anthemic climb, taking stylistic cues from the skyscraping synths of mid-2000s electro house and the rhythmic chug of '80s hi-NRG Italo disco, blended together with expert craftsmanship. - Pitchfork
